TWO weather warnings issued for Galway

TWO weather warnings issued for Galway

The yellow rainfall warning is in place for counties Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Clare, Cork, Kerry, Tipperary and Waterford until 9am on Tuesday.

This evening a third Status Yellow warning was issued for a further seven counties: Dublin, Carlow, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Wexford and Wicklow.

There is a potential for higher amounts on hills and mountains and localised spot flooding is possible. This warning is valid until 11am.

Heavy showers are expected in the eight counties under a status yellow rainfall warning.

Gusts as high as 110kph and up to 50mm of rain is expected to hit part of the country in the coming hours, according to Met Eireann.

There will be rain on Wednesday morning in western counties but the rest of the country should have a mainly dry and bright day.

After the stormy weather, Met Éireann is forecasting a big improvement. "Highest temperatures of 11 to 14 degrees with fresh to strong and gusty southeast winds, veering southwesterly later in the day". Seems like a decade since it's been warm and since we've seen sun.

"Overnight lows of 9 or 10 degrees Celsius".

Temperatures will begin to decline from Friday and during the course of the weekend.

After the announcement that there was two weather warnings on the way to Ireland, expert Weather Forecaster, Barra Best, has told the public to prepare for Storm Irene which is heading to our little country at a rapid speed.

"But rain is then expected to move in off the Atlantic later in the night and drying up again on Sunday, which will be cooler and fresher again".
