There’s unsettled weather ahead for Ireland this weekend.

Earlier in the week we reported on the potential snowfall; now there are weather warnings in place for several counties. Storm Arwen is on the way, bringing cold and windy weather with it today and Saturday. Met Éireann have issued a Status Yellow Wind Warning for Donegal, Mayo, Sligo, and Northern Ireland. In particular there’s the possibility of large coastal waves, fallen trees, disruption to power and transport, and snow. The warning comes in from 3pm today and remains in place until early on Saturday morning.

Tonight Met Éireann states: “There will be strong gales on the Irish Sea with fresh to strong northwest to north winds inland.”

According to The Irish Times: “Storm Arwen is expected to bring gusts of wind up to 110 km/h.”

From Saturday afternoon the winds are to calm down significantly.
