We’re surely going to run out of names for all these ‘storms’ that have been coming our way
Met Eireann has announced that 10 counties have been issued with a weather warning on Wednesday.
The Status Yellow, Wind Warning is for all of Connacht, Cavan, Donegal, Clare, Kerry and Limerick.
They say that:
“Southwest winds will reach mean wind speeds between 55 to 65km/h with gusts of 90 to 110km/h, strongest near coasts where these limits may be exceeded for a short period later on Thursday night.”
The warning is valid from Thursday at 10pm until Friday, December 7th at 9am.
Still a lot of uncertainty on the weather models for the possible storm Friday. These two charts for 13:00 from last two model runs from ICON-EU show how small changes can make a big difference to the possible impacts. pic.twitter.com/ErEWTVDHQY
