Met Éireann issues weather warning for Galway

Met Éireann has issued a status yellow weather warning for Galway which will come into effect tomorrow (Saturday) morning.

The weather warning for wind has been issued as southerly winds will reach speeds of 45 to 60 km/hr with gusts of 80 to 100 km/hr in coastal areas and on exposed hills and mountains.

It will come into effect at 9.00am on Saturday and last until 8.00pm.

Galway has again escaped the weather warning for heavy rain, as just three counties in the south are included in a new status yellow advisory.

But there will be some heavy rain as well as the strong winds in places tomorrow afternoon after some bright and sunny spells in the early morning.

These bright spells will soon give way to cloud from the Atlantic with patchy rain and drizzle developing during the morning.

Met Éireann say that more persistent rain will move in from the southwest during the afternoon, with some heavy bursts in places.

Maximum temperatures will be between 16 to 18 degrees.

Sunday will bring a mix of cloud, sunshine and passing showers across the country, with more frequent showers in the West.

Some of the showers could be heavy and possibly thundery.
