Hold onto your hats: Wind warning issued by Met Éireann

After a miserable period of weather, this week is shaping up to be more of the same.

And Met Éireann have issued a status yellow wind warning for the country for tomorrow, Tuesday.

The warning lasts from Tuesday at 8pm to 6am on Wednesday morning, with winds of up to 110kmh expected.

People in Galway are being advised to stay away from coastal and cliff areas.

“Southwest winds are expected to reach mean speeds of between 55 and 65 km/hr, gusting to 110 km/hr at times on Tuesday night,” explain Met Éireann on their official website.

Meanwhile, rain will reach the west by this evening, and it looks like it will remain wet throughout the week.

“Outbreaks of rain will reach the west this evening and will spread across the country overnight. The rain will be heaviest and most persistent in the west and northwest but rather patchy elsewhere. A misty night with minimum temperatures of 4 to 7 degrees in northern counties but temperatures will rise to between 9 and 11 degrees in all areas later in the night,” the weather chiefs forecast.
