Eight Counties Have Been Hit With A Status Yellow Rainfall Warning

James Fenton

It looks like we’re finally in for some decent weather later this week but not before large parts of the country are hit with buckets of rain it seems.

Met Éireann has issued a status yellow rainfall warning for the counties of Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Clare, Cork, Kerry, Tipperary and Waterford. The warning is valid from 9am on Monday until 9am on Tuesday while another status yellow, this time a wind warning, has been issued for the whole of Ireland. It lasts from 9am on Monday until 6am on Tuesday and reads:

‘South to southeast winds will reach mean speeds between 50 and 65km/h with gusts between 80 and 110km/h. Winds strongest along Atlantic coastal counties at first but the strong winds will extend countrywide through the course of the Monday afternoon and evening.’

Just a small price we have to pay for some sunshine later in the week as the mercury is set to hit 18 degrees.
