Met Éireann says a Status Yellow gale warning is in effect on all Irish coastal waters and on the Irish Sea as of 6am this morning (Tuesday 27 November) as the first of two waves of stormy weather conditions passes over the country.

Heavy downpours with spot flooding, and gales and severe gusts will be experienced nationwide, particularly from Dublin and much of south Leinster, across Munster, up to west Connacht and Donegal.

Winds are expected die down after 3pm but will pick up again this evening and overnight into Wednesday 28 November, again with very blustery strong to gale force winds, southeast veering southwest. Donegal Weather Channel predicts a potential Status Orange warning later today.
