Met Éireann issue wind warning for three counties

Looking forward, temperatures are set to get as low as -2 for a lot of the coming weekend.

Hope you've made the most of the January sales and bought yourself some nice jumpers and jackets, because you're going to need them this week.


A status yellow wind warning has been issued for Donegal, Galway, and Mayo, and it will be in place from 10pm tonight (Tuesday 14 January) until 6pm on Wednesday.

The warning description from Met Éireann is as follows:

"West to Southwest winds 50 to 65 km/hr, gusts 90 to 100 km/hr with risk of coastal flooding around the period of high tides."

On the temperature front, things won't be too bad in the immediate future - Wednesday evening will only get as cold as 2 degrees, while Thursday will see things deep below freezing - that will take a dive come the start of the weekend.

The forecast for the weekend is predicting that the temperatures will drop to as low as -2 on Friday evening, with widespread frost set to be found nationwide.

That will continue into Saturday, which will at least be dry for most of the day, before also dropping to -2 that night, bringing more frost with it.

The forecast at the moment sees things staying pretty much the same on Sunday, and well into next week, with a continuing risk of frost each and every night.
