A Status Yellow gale warning is in place for all Irish coastal waters and the Irish Sea as Storm Dennis sweeps towards Britain this weekend.
Winds of up to Force 9 are expected around the coast, while counties Wexford and Waterford are bearing the brunt with gusts of up to 120km/m.
Storm Dennis is whipping up at Hook Lighthouse....— Hook Lighthouse (@hooklighthouse) February 15, 2020
Where does the sky met the sea?... wow.
Please keep back from the coasts, the warning of overtopping is serious. ⚠️ #StaySafe#StormDennis#HookLighthouse #Wexford #Ireland pic.twitter.com/PeT7Bu3mQi
Storm Dennis has already prompted the cancellation of DMYC Frostbite dinghy races tomorrow (Sunday 16 February) due to strong gusts predicted for Dun Laoghaire Harbour.
However, the DBSC said it would make every effort to sail the Spring Chicken series in the morning.
