Extreme caution is advised

Met Éireann has issued a number of wet warnings as Storm Atiyah approaches.

The storm will track between Iceland and Ireland today (Sunday, December 8th) generating very strong winds across the country.

Red wind warning

A status red wind warning came into effect in Kerry at 1pm today (Sunday, December 8th) and will be valid until 7pm this evening.

"West to southwest winds, veering northwest, will reach mean speeds in excess of 80km/h with gusts in excess of 130km/h for a time this evening."

"Extreme caution is advised, especially near the coast and on high ground." Met Éireann added.

The national forecaster has warned that due to a combination of high seas and storm surge, there is a possibility of coastal flooding.

Orange wind warning

Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare, Cork, Kerry and Limerick have been placed under a status orange wind warning from 1pm today until 6am tomorrow (Monday, December 7th).

South-westerly winds, later veering north-westerly, will reach mean speeds of 65 to 80 km/h with gusts from 110 to 130km/h - possibly higher in exposed, coastal area.

Once again, there is a possibility of coastal flooding due to a combination of high seas and storm surge.

Yellow wind warning

Meanwhile, a status yellow wind warning came into effect at 1pm in Leinster, Cavan, Monaghan, Roscommon, Tipperary and Waterfod.

"Southwesterly winds, later veering northwesterly, will reach mean speeds between 50 and 65km/h with gusts between 90 and 110km/h."

This is valid until 6am tomorrow (Monday, December 9th).

Rainfall warning

Rainfall accumulations of 30 to 40mm are expected in Donegal. The status yellow rainfall warning is valid until 6pm this evening (Sunday, December 8th).
