2 Status Yellow weather warnings issued

Met Eireann has issued two Status Yellow weather warnings – a wind warning and a snow-ice warning.

The Status Yellow snow-ice warning has been announced for counties Cavan, Monaghan, Donegal, Louth and Leitrim.

Met Eireann has warned of a risk of snow showers, especially over high ground, leading to accumulations up to 3cm.

Issued today at 3:00pm, the warning will be valid from 3:00am tonight until 3:00pm tomorrow evening.

Meanwhile, the wind warning has been issued for counties Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare, Cork, Kerry and Limerick.

It was issued at 4:00pm this evening (Tuesday, January 30) and will come into effect at 6:00am tomorrow morning. The warning will remain in place until midnight tomorrow night.

Westerly winds veering north-west will at times reach 55kph to 60kph near coastal fringes, Met Eireann has warned.

For the rest of the country, tomorrow will be a cold, very blustery and showery day. The showers will be mainly over the west and north during the morning; but, they will extend nationwide in the afternoon – with occasional hail and sleet and some snow on northern hills.

Some thunder is likely also, according to the national meteorological office. Highest temperatures of 4° to 7° in strong and gusty west to north-west winds are expected, with gales in exposed coastal areas.
