- Met Éireann has issued its most up to date forecast for today and it is bad. Storm Agnes will track north-eastwards across Ireland with disruption likely in places. It will be wet and very windy with strong to gale force winds. Strong onshore winds and high seas will bring the risk of coastal flooding on eastern and southern coasts. The south and east will get the worse of the wind and rain.
