Status Yellow weather warning issued for all of Ireland

Batten down the hatches, folks.

A Status Yellow weather warning has been issued for all of Ireland.

Met Éireann issued the warning on Friday morning, that will be valid from 11am on Friday until 6am the following day.

It said to expect strong northerly winds throughout the day that will gust up to 100km/h.

There will also be "a slight risk" of coastal flooding in certain areas.

We know this probably isn't the news you wanted to hear going into the weekend AND on the day that restaurants and gastropubs open.

But sure it gives you an excuse to head home early and get into bed...

Though things are slightly looking up as the weekend goes on, with Saturday expected to be a drier day in most places, with the chance of some improving sunshine.

However, it'll stay rather cloudy along Atlantic counties and in east Leinster with showery rain continuing there for a time.

Sunday will be dry for the most part, though it will be "very cold and frosty to start", with fog gradually clearing.

Merry Christmas!
