Cumbria's freak weather blamed on Hurricane Gert

Westmeath has been included in the very latest Status Yellow rainfall warning resulting from the expected arrival of the downgraded Hurricane Gert.

The warning itself reads "Warm, humid conditions expected to develop through Sunday, lasting into the early days of next week, will bring spells of heavy rain leading to potential accumulations of 30 to 50mm, with highest totals in the mountains".

A Met Office forecaster said: "From August 28 to September 3, temperatures will perhaps be rather warm at times in the South. Parts of the southeast may stay mainly dry with some sunny spells".

Elsewhere, the weather will be mild and humid with outbreaks of rain coming in from the south-west spreading across the whole country but not quite reaching North Ulster.

Rainfall warnings have been issued by Met Éireann for the counties of Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo and Sligo as a low pressure area passes by Atlantic coasts.
