Another weather warning on the way this weekend, affecting four counties

Storm Barra has gone, but there's more wild weather on the way.

Met Éireann has issued a new Status Yellow wind warning for four counties over possible "severe gusts" this weekend.


Valid from 3pm on Sunday to 11pm that night, it applies to Donegal, Galway, Kerry and Mayo.

The warning states that it will be "very windy" in these counties throughout Sunday afternoon and evening and for a time at night.

"Some severe gusts are possible and this may lead to some fallen trees," the warning reads.


Meanwhile, Met Éireann's forecast for the weekend says Saturday is set to be a dull and cloudy day with outbreaks of rain, which will be heavy at times over the northern half of the country.

That said, drier and clearer weather will follow into Connacht and Ulster throughout the evening.

Conditions will be noticeably milder with highest temperatures of 10 to 13 degrees in moderate to fresh winds.


On Sunday morning, rain and drizzle is set to spread northwards.

The rest of the day is forecast to be mostly cloudy and breezy with patchy outbreaks of rain in most areas, which will be heaviest in the west.

Conditions will be mild with afternoon temperatures of 11 to 13 degrees.

However, they will also be breezy, with winds increasing strong to gale force in the west and northwest later in the day, bringing the risk of severe winds near to the coast.
