Met Éireann issue weather warning with awful conditions to hit on Tuesday
Met Éireann has placed ten counties under a Status Yellow wind and rain warning for much of Tuesday with a brutal Atlantiic weather system to hit Ireland.
Clare, Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Waterford, Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo and Sligo were slapped with the warning on Monday morning in advance of the adverse conditions. The warning will be in place from 4am to 3pm on Tuesday, March 8.
Met Éireann's forecast for those counties read: "Strong to near gale force and gusty southeast to south winds on Tuesday morning and afternoon.
"These winds will be accompanied by heavy rain clearing to squally showers through the afternoon, with hazardous driving conditions and localised flooding possible."
The weather will be largely unsettled elsewhere too with some patchy drizzle developing on Monday afternoon.
Some bright spells early today but cloud will continue to build from the south with the best of the afternoon sunny spells in the northwest⛅️Dry apart from some patchy drizzle, mainly near southern coasts but becoming breezy as southeast winds freshen.— Met Éireann (@MetEireann) March 7, 2022

Met Éireann added that it will be "unsettled through much of the coming week with rain and showers. Breezy or windy at times too."
