A NATIONAL YELLOW and a regional orange weather warning have been issued for this Friday.

Met Éireann says that this Friday will be “very windy”, particularly in Donegal, Mayo and Galway, where an orange warning is in place. The weather service says that gusts could hit between 100 and 120km/h.

For the rest of the country, gusts will reach between 90 and 110km/h.

The warnings will be in effect from 6am to 6pm.

Ahead of Christmas, Met Éireann says that showers will clear tomorrow with a “good deal” of dry, sunny weather settling in. Scattered showers will affect the west and north through the day. Tomorrow night will be mainly dry.

Friday will be wet and very windy with strong, gusty southerly winds. Heavy rain will spread eastwards with spot flooding possible in places. That rain will last into Christmas eve, while the big day is expected to be mild, breezy and mostly cloudy with patchy rain during the day and with heavier rain spreading eastwards in the evening and early night.
