Atlantic depression set for Ireland this evening

Galway Daily weather warning

Only one weather warning has been issued by Met Éireann for Galway this evening.

As the county recovers from Storm Fionn, a fast moving Atlantic depression will cross Ireland this evening and early tonight, bringing winds of 50 to 65km/h and gusts of 90 to 110km/h to many counties.

Met Éireann says winds may temporarily exceed these values in exposed Atlantic coastal fringes for a time this evening.

There is also an increased risk of coastal flooding due to the combination of the high seas, strong winds and the low pressure.

Elsewhere, scattered snow showers are forecast later in the night and throughout Thursday across Ulster.

At present, the main risk of appreciable accumulations is limited to Ulster.
