A New Weather Warning Has Been Issued For The Whole Of Ireland

Darragh Berry

Ah, that was a nice day or two that we had without any weather warnings…

Anyway, it’s Monday and with a new week comes a brand new alert for the people of Ireland. 

Met Éireann has issued a Status Yellow Wind Warning for the whole of Ireland meaning everyone will have to bear the brunt of the latest weather change.  

They say that “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.”

The warning was issued on Monday at 11am and will be in place from Tuesday 23 January at 8pm until Wednesday 24, January at 6am.

So, if you can at all, it’s best to just stay inside between those times and try your best to keep as safe and warm as possible.

Focusing on Monday night, there will be outbreaks of rain that will reach the west by evening and 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. 

By Tuesday then, the rain will clear away eastwards with bright spells and scattered showers following. There will be afternoon temperatures of 9 to 12 degrees in strong and gusty southwesterly winds before the weather warning kicks in.
