This includes conditions such as storms, heavy snow and drought becoming more common.The government has launched its new “be winter-ready” campaign with a big focus on farm safety this year.There’s also information on how to keep safe at home and on the roads.Met Eireann’s Evelyn Cusack says there’s no extreme weather forecast for the next few weeks – but climate change will make it more likely:

“Last year from Ophelia to you know 17 to 18, I think that was a good calling card of what the future can look like. We had everything, we had drought, storm, snow and you know heavy rain. So I think this is what we need to be prepared for, that these kinds of severe weather events can become more prevalent unfortunately.”
