Brace Yourself: Storm Antoni to Unleash Fury on South West this August Bank Holiday!


Antoni, an unwelcome visitor from the South West, is set to spoil the bank holiday weekend with some severe weather. The UK Met Office has confirmed that Antoni is the first named storm of the season, arriving during the highpoint of summer, the August Bank Holiday Weekend. Antoni is expected to bring heavy showers and strong winds, prompting a Status Yellow wind warning for Cork, Kerry, and Waterford. The warning will be in effect from 4 am tomorrow until midday. Met Eireann has cautioned about very strong north to northwest winds with gusts of up to 110 km/hr, which could result in falling branches and damage to temporary structures.

Fortunately, Antoni is expected to move on by tomorrow afternoon, and there is some hope for better weather. Tomorrow evening may bring sunnier spells, while Sunday could offer bright, dry, and fresh conditions in many parts of Cork. Although it may not be ideal beach weather, Sunday will be suitable for outdoor activities and might even have a touch of summer. So, if you’re planning to go out and about, Sunday is the day to aim for. It could provide a much-needed respite after the wet and windy start to the August Bank Holiday Weekend.
