Don't be fooled by that sun...there's ANOTHER weather warning in place

At least this one is only at level yellow (two grades down from the highest red).

THOSE BLUE SKIES, warm rays of sunshine and calm atmosphere were welcome, welcome sights and feelings this morning.

But, and we’re sorry about having to tell you this, there is another weather warning in place right now.

Met Éireann issued a national status yellow warning at 6am today. It will remain valid from noon until 7pm tomorrow.

According to the weather men and women, south to southeast winds will reach mean speeds of 45 to 65 km/hr (with gusts of 80 or 90 km/hr) this afternoon and evening in exposed regions.

The wind warning is specific to Munster, Leinster, Connacht, Donegal, Monaghan and Cavan. So, pretty much the entire country.

Tonight and tomorrow, southerly winds veering westerly are expected to reach mean speeds of 50 to 65 km/hr (gusts of 90 to 100 km/hr) with highest values in exposed coastal regions.
