Weather warning issued for all of Ireland ahead of the weekend

It's not going to be a pleasant weekend, let's just say that.

Earlier on Thursday, we shared the news that two weather warnings were in place across a number of counties in Ireland.


Firstly, a Status Yellow rainfall warning is in effect for Donegal, Clare, Cork, Kerry, Limerick and the entirety of Connacht.

As well as that, there's a Status Yellow wind warning currently in place for Galway and Mayo from 10am on Thursday until 4pm on the same day.

Since then, two further warnings have been issued ahead of what is going to be quite a miserable weekend on the weather front.

Met Éireann issued a Status Yellow wind warning for all of Ireland, stating that strong to gale force southerly winds will veer westerly. Some severe gusts are possible all across the country.

This will be in place from 1am on Saturday morning until 3pm later that day.

Separately, a weather advisory was also issued by Met Éireann, which will remain in place all weekend (from 9pm on Friday until 6pm the following Monday).

It warned that spells of heavy rain will lead to surface and river flooding in certain areas, and that it will be very windy and stormy at times with some severe and damaging gusts possible.


Very high seas are also to be expected.
