Incoming: Another 'high winds' weather warning just kicked-in

It’s going to be a blustery 24 hours. Let’s be careful out there…

AN ‘ORANGE ALERT’ weather warning has been issued for the country’s exposed western coasts.

Winds gusting at over 110km per hour are forecast for later today and overnight.

According to Met Éireann…

Southwest winds will reach mean speeds greater than 46 km/h with gusts between 80 and 110 km/h today but along exposed coasts mean speeds will reach up to 70 km/h with gusts greater than 110 km/h, strongest winds will come tonight.

Meanwhile, a less-serious ‘yellow’ wind warning will apply for the rest of the country.

Both alerts kicked in at 9am, and last until 9 tomorrow morning.

It follows strong winds overnight on Friday, which led to hazardous driving conditions around the country — motorists having to cope with fallen trees and other debris on the roads.

Cold temperatures are being forecast for tomorrow and Tuesday, with some wintry showers expected later tomorrow.
