Status yellow weather warning issued for Galway

Met Eireann has issued a status yellow weather warning for Galway along with most of the north and west of Ireland, with a risk of coastal flooding.

The weather warning forecasts high winds throughout much Thursday, with winds veering from southwest to west and northwest reaching average speeds of 50km/hr to 65km/hr.

Gusts of between 80km/hr and 110km/hr can also be expected Met Eireann has cautioned.

Due to a combination of waves, spring tides and surge there is also an increased risk of coastal flooding while the weather warning is in effect.

This alert has been issued for counties Cavan, Monaghan, Donegal, Dublin, Louth, Meath, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo and Clare.

It will come into force at 4am on Thursday morning, and remain in effect until 6pm that evening.

This is one of three weather warnings currently issued by Met Eireann, with two more covering Donegal.

A snow and ice warning is in place today, and will remain until 8am on Thursday, while a Status Orange wind warning will be in force there from 8am to midday on Thursday.
