We’re sure Teresa Mannion will be all over this!

Only weeks after Storm Arwen, Storm Barra is on its way and due to hit tomorrow. Met Éireann issued a red wind warning for Cork and Kerry, which will come into effect at 6am on Tuesday and last until 9pm.

Met Éireann says: “Due to a combination of high waves, storm surge and high tide, coastal flooding is expected. Disruption to power and travel are likely” in Cork and Kerry.

More recently, Clare now also has a red wind warning.

Snow is also possible in some areas on Tuesday, with Met Éireann reporting:

Falls of sleet and hill snow are likely in places, especially across the northwest during the morning.”

An orange wind warning has been issued for Limerick, Waterford, Galway, Mayo, Dublin, Meath, Louth, Wicklow, and Wexford. A Status Yellow wind and rain warning is in place for the whole country.

Storm Barra will begin to die out as the week continues, but Met Éireann says to expect unsettled weather. There will be on and off rainfall on Wednesday and Thursday, and temperatures will remain low.

If you’re out travelling tomorrow, please be careful and be aware of the weather warnings in place, as disruption to travel and power are expected across the country. You can read more into the weather warnings HERE.
