Status orange wind warning extended

Met Éireann has extended its status orange wind warning for Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo and Sligo, as Storm Brendan tracks away from Ireland.

In these counties, south-westerly winds will continue to reach mean speeds of 65 to 80 km/h with gusts of 100 to 130 km/h, according to the national forecaster, who warned that these will be higher in exposed areas.

There is a significant risk of coastal flooding due to the combination of high spring tides and storm surge.

The warning is valid from 2:30pm this afternoon (Monday, January 13th) until 23:59.

Status yellow wind warning

Meanwhile, a status yellow wind warning is in place in Wexford, Cavan, Monaghan, Roscommon, Clare, Cork, Kerry, Limerick and Waterford until 8pm.

Valid from 3pm, the national forecaster said that southwest to west winds will reach mean speeds of 50 to 65 km/h with gusts of 90 to 110km/h, highest in exposed areas.
