Galway Daily

The Status Orange warning ends on the morning of New Year’s Eve.

Met Éireann has issued yet another weather warning for Galway; this time, a ‘Status Orange’ wind warning will be in place for Connacht, Cavan, Monaghan, Donegal, Longford, Louth, Westmeath and Meath throughout tomorrow (Saturday) night.

Storm Dylan is expected to affect Ireland into early on Sunday morning.

Its expected track is north-eastwards through Donegal Bay and up along the north-Ulster coast.

But Galway could once again be one of the worst affected counties by the extreme weather, as the biggest impact from the storm is expected to be across Connacht and Ulster where west to southwest winds with mean speeds of 60 to 80 km/h with gusts of up to 120km/hr.

There will also be high seas along the west coast too with the risk of coastal flooding.
