New Status Yellow weather warning issued for nine counties in Ireland

Yet another weather warning has been issued as Storm Dennis makes its way through Ireland.

A new weather warning has been issued for nine counties in Ireland.

Met Éireann has issued a Status Yellow wind warning for Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare, Cork, Kerry and Limerick.

The warning, which was issued on Sunday night, will come into play from 10pm on Sunday until 3am on Monday morning.

Southwest winds are expected, veering westerly, that will reach mean speeds of 50 to 60 km/h.

Gusts of 90 to 110 km/h are also to be expected, with the strongest of these gusts on exposed coasts and hills.

There's also a risk of coastal flooding.

Met Éireann said: "It will be very windy everywhere with strong and very gusty southwest winds. It will be stormy at times near west and north coasts with gales and severe or damaging gusts and a risk of coastal flooding."

With regards to Monday, it is expected to be a cold, bright, blustery day with sunshine and scattered heavy showers, with an ongoing risk of hail and thunder.

The showers will be most frequent across the western half of the country, possibly turning wintry over high ground here later.
