Wind and rain due as four weather warnings to come into effect

Four weather warnings are due to come into effect in the next 24 hours with Met Éireann predicting heavy rain and strong winds. 

The first, a Status Yellow wind warning for Kerry and West Galway, comes into effect on Tuesday at 5pm and will remain in place until 5am on Wednesday. 

Met Éireann has said that “south to southwest winds will be very strong and gusty” and could potentially bring the chance of falling branches or trees. It could also see loose debris blowing around as well as difficult driving conditions. 

A Status Yellow rain warning comes into effect at 5pm on Tuesday with Cork, Limerick, Kerry, Tipperary, Clare, Cavan, Donegal and Connacht all being impacted. 

“Spells of rain will be heavy and persistent at times, especially on hills and mountains,” Met Éireann said. Potential impacts include localised flooding and travel disruption. 

A second Status Yellow wind warning will come into effect at midnight on Wednesday for Cork, Waterford, Wicklow and Wexford. It will stay in place until 6am on Wednesday. 

“South to southwest winds will be very strong and gusty,” Met Éireann said, causing difficult driving conditions.

The final warning will see strong and gusty winds impact Donegal and Mayo from 6am on Wednesday until 3pm that afternoon. 

‘Wet and breezy’ Tuesday

Meanwhile, it will be wet and “breezy or windy” for much of Tuesday. It will be “generally dull with rain and drizzle” which will turn heavy at times. There will be occasional drier and brighter periods in the afternoon, the best of these in the south.

Tuesday night will follow suit as “rain will persist in most areas through the night and will be heavy at times, with thunder possible too”.

The rain will then start to clear from the east on Wednesday morning with some sunny spells and widespread showers. Some of these will turn heavy with the chance of isolated thunder.

Wednesday night will then see clear spells and scattered showers at first, but most places are expected to become dry overnight.

Thursday then should be largely dry with sunny spells and some isolated showers. “Showery rain will develop in the northwest during the morning and will move southeast across the country through the day but there will still be occasional sunny breaks,” Met Éireann said. 

The early indications for the weekend are that it will be “wet and breezy, potentially windy” in most parts.
