Darragh Berry

(Yet another) weather warning has been put in place for Ireland and was issued for the whole country on Monday afternoon. 

Met Éireann put up information about the status yellow warning at 12pm on their website and stated that there was a “low temperature warning for Ireland [with] air temperatures overnight [ranging] minima of zero to -4 degrees celsius.”

The weather warning is valid from Monday (11 December) 8pm until Tuesday (12 December) at 10am. 

There has been a whole host of weather warnings in the last couple of days for different parts of Ireland and on Sunday morning, loads of counties woke up to the sight of snow outside their door. 

Motorists have been asked by the Transport Infrastructure Ireland to stay below 80km/h on inland motorway networks.

Dublin Airport also announced that because of the change in weather, five departures to Heathrow Airport which were due to fly on Monday have been cancelled.

Met Éireann explains that “the concept behind YELLOW level weather alerts is to notify those who are at risk because of their location and/or activity, and to allow them to take preventative action. 

“It is implicit that YELLOW level weather alerts are for weather conditions that do not pose an immediate threat to the general population, but only to those exposed to risk by nature of their location and/or activity.”
