Status Yellow warning for 18 counties as gusts of up to 110 km/h forecast

Be careful out there...

Tis the season.


Following on from a pair of blustery weather warnings on Sunday morning, Met Éireann has added three new individual notes of Status Yellow caution, with 18 counties in total affected.

First up, a Status Yellow wind warning for Carlow, Dublin, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Offaly, Wexford and Wicklow.

This warning is valid until 11pm on Sunday (31 October), with westerly winds set to hit mean speeds of up to 65 kilometres per hour, with gusts of up to 100 kilometres per hour along for the ride.

The second Status Yellow warning is for Donegal, Leitrim and Sligo.

This warning has basically the same conditions attached, with northwest winds set to reach mean speeds of 65 kilometres per hour, while gusts of between 90 – 110 kilometres and higher are possible along coasts and exposed hills.

That one comes into effect at 6pm on Sunday and is valid until 6am on Monday morning, 1 November.

Finally, a third Status Yellow warning also comes into effect from 6pm, with this one valid until 5am on Monday.


Expect the same windy conditions as listed above if you're based in Cavan, Monaghan, Longford, Louth, Meath, Westmeath or Roscommon.


Status Orange storm and Status Yellow gale warnings are also in place for anyone operating on the seas.


Additionally, Met Éireann has highlighted an advisory from the UK Met Office in relation to Antrim, Down and Derry, with high winds potentially causing travel disruption on Monday morning.
