Three Status Yellow weather warnings issued, affecting eight counties

Eight counties will be affected by the three warnings.

Three separate weather warnings have been issued for eight counties across Ireland.

The first of which is a Status Yellow rainfall warning for Galway and Mayo, which will be in place from 9pm on Friday until 9am on Saturday morning.

There will be rain on Friday evening through to Saturday morning, which will lead to accumulations of 20 – 40mm, with higher accumulations in mountainous areas.

Met Éireann said that this will bring a risk of localised flooding and heightened risk of flash flooding in mountainous areas.

Secondly, a Status Yellow wind warning will be in place in Donegal, Galway, Mayo, Clare and Kerry.

This will be valid from 10pm on Friday until 7am the next day, with south to southwest winds expected to reach mean speeds of 50 to 65 km/h, with gusts of 90 to 110 km/h.

Finally, a Status Yellow wind warning has been issued for Wexford, Cork and Waterford.

This will be valid from literally first thing on Saturday morning (12.01am) until 11am.

Met Éireann has warned that wind speeds may be higher in coastal and exposed areas.
