A Status Yellow Wind Warning Has Been Issued For Two Irish Counties

James Fenton

After a fairly tame festive season in terms of weather, it looks like things are set to take a turn for the worst.

Yesterday, we reported that hail and thunderstorms are on the way and now Met Éireann has issued two counties with a status yellow wind warning.

Last night, residents in Cork and Kerry were officially warned that ‘West to Northwest winds will reach mean speed between 50 and 65km/h with gusts up to 90km/h. Winds strongest along coasts.’

The warning is in place from midday until 5pm today and more information can be found here.

Stay safe out there, folks.
