Gale Warning For Irish Coastal Waters Ahead Of Storm Caroline’s Passage

#Weather - Met Éireann has issued a Status Yellow gale warning on all Irish coastal waters and on the Irish Sea in effect from 5am this morning (Wednesday 6 December).

Gusts of up to 110km/h are expected along all coastal areas today ahead of Storm Caroline’s passage over the North West and North towards Scotland on Thursday.

High winds will affect parts of Scotland, but the storm system — the third of the current winter storm cycle — will also generate strong and blustery winds over Ireland.

Northwest winds of 55 to 65 are expected to gust 100 to 110 km/h, with the strongest winds in coastal areas and over high ground.

The severe weather comes almost two months after the near-hurricane Ophelia devastated many parts of Ireland.
