Irish weather forecast: Met Eireann issue Status Yellow wind warning with 100km/h gusts expected


A Status Yellow wind warning has been issued for two counties tomorrow with gusts of up to 100km/h expected.

The alert is in place for Donegal and Mayo on Thursday, starting at 7am and finishing 6pm.

It reads: “South to southwest winds will strengthen during Thursday reaching mean speeds of 50-65km/h with gusts of 90-100km/h.”

It comes as weather experts said a “pulse of rain” is set to batter parts of Ireland on Thursday.

And Met Eireann has also warned of possible gale force winds on what is expected to be a wet and windy day.
