Met Éireann issue weather warnings for three counties
There are some strong winds coming in the west.
While the weather may be blazing hot outside now, it's not set to last — and least not in certain parts of the country.
We all suspected that the weather would get at least a little bit worse once the country began to reopen during phase one, and sure enough Met Éireann has issued a status yellow weather warning for three counties this evening.
There is one weather warning pertaining to Galway and Mayo, that will come into effect at 9pm on Thursday evening (21 May). This warning says those counties can expect "south to southeast winds, veering southwesterly to reach mean speeds of 45 to 65 km/hr with gusts of 85 to 110 Km/hr, mainly in coastal areas and on exposed hills and mountains." The warning will remain in place until 6pm on Friday.
Separately, a second warning has been issued for Donegal. While the substance of the warning remains the same, it does not come in effect until 6am on Friday (22 May), and will remain in place until 9pm later that night.
