MET Éireann has issued two yellow weather warnings, with “severe” weather expected to continue over the weekend.

A status yellow wind warning was issued at 4 pm yesterday and will stay in place until 2 pm today for counties Wexford, Cork, Kerry and Waterford. However, high winds are not the only issue, with a status yellow rain warning put in place for counties Kerry, Cork and Waterford. The warning was issued at 6 pm yesterday and is expected to last for 24 hours.

Southeasterly winds will be strongest in coastal areas and will reach a mean speed of between 50 and 65km/h; with gusts of 90 to 100 km/hr expected. Forecasters have warned spot flooding is possible, with accumulations of between 25mm and 50mm of rain expected in places.

The strong winds and heavy rain will ease later today and into tonight. Tomorrow will be a mostly cloudy day but a band of heavy rain will hit the country later, with wind speeds increasing.

The weekend outlook remains unsettled, with harsh weather expected for Saturday. A status yellow weather advisory has been put in place by MET Éireann. Speaking on RTÉ Radio One’s Morning Ireland, MET Éireann forecaster John Eagleton said Saturday’s weather would be “horrible.”

Strong winds are expected, which have the potential to turn stormy on northern coasts, and heavy rain is expected nationwide.

Thankfully, a clearance has been forecast for Sunday, with sunny spells and some scattered showers.
