All schools in Ireland will re-open tomorrow after Storm Barra kept some closed for the last two days.
A number of counties dealing with orange and red weather warnings, including Dublin, had their schools closed by the storm on Tuesday.
And due to the extension of some warnings into Wednesday morning, schools were forced to close again on Wednesday in twelve counties, with Dublin once again included.
But as the storm tracks over and past the country, the Department of Education has confirmed that all schools will open their doors tomorrow.
A short statement from the Department read: “The Department of Education has recommended that schools across the country re-open tomorrow as normal.
“The Department would like to thank the school community, school staff and parents, and the emergency services for all the support given during Storm Barra.”
All current Storm Barra weather warnings are due to expire by 5pm.
Tomorrow we will have a dry start for most of the country, but rain will develop in the southwest and spread eastwards later, possibly falling as sleet and snow in some areas initially, then quickly clearing to rain.
We’ll have highest temperatures of 6 to 10 degrees with light southerly winds, becoming west to northwest later.
The rain will clear to scattered showers on Thursday night, with lowest temperatures of 1 or 2 degrees in moderate to fresh northwest winds.
