Met Éireann has issued a status yellow wind warning to 17 counties with winds set to reach 100 km/h at times on Tuesday.

The weather experts issued the advisory at 3pm today and it it’s valid for the counties of Donegal, Galway and Mayo from 1am until 8pm tomorrow. For this region, the forecasters warn that ‘Southerly winds gradually veering westerly will reach mean speeds of 50 to 65km/h with gusts of 90 to 110km/h, strongest near coasts and about high ground.

Meanwhile, an additional 14 counties have been issued with a status yellow wind warning that will be valid from 6am until 8pm. They are Dublin, Kildare, Longford, Louth, Wexford, Wicklow, Offaly, Westmeath, Meath, Cavan, Monaghan, Leitrim, Roscommon and Sligo. This warning reads that ‘Southerly winds gradually veering westerly will reach mean speeds of 50 to 65km/h with gusts of 90 to 100km/h at times during Tuesday.’

If you’re out and about tomorrow, it would seem to be a good idea to take precautions, particularly if you’re getting behind the wheel.
