Status yellow weather warning issued for two counties in Ireland

It's going to be a windy one out there folks.

A status yellow wind warning has been issued by Met Éireann for two counties in Ireland.

Mayo and Galway are the two counties that will be affected by the warning, which was issued on Sunday afternoon.

The warning will be in place from 2pm on Sunday 2 June, until 7pm on the same day, and it is expected that southwest winds will reach main speeds of 55 to 60 km/h, with gusts of 90 to 11 km/h in exposed coastal areas.

Earlier on Sunday, we shared the news that Met Éireann warned that "Heavier and more prolonged showers will become widespread across Connacht this afternoon and later in west Ulster, with just a few scattered showers elsewhere."

It's also expected that temperatures will hit highs of 19 degrees but there will be strong winds happening over night into Monday with further showers, most of them in Connacht, west Ulster and west Munster.

It'll be "mainly dry elsewhere" with Monday bringing some bright and sunny spells with scattered showers through the day.
