Be Cautious: Weather Warning As Storm Ellen Approaches Ireland

Weather warnings are now in place across the country…

All of Ireland is now under a ‘status yellow – wind warning’, which is also subject to change as the day progresses.

As per a recent update from Met Eireann, Ireland will become very windy on Wednesday night and throughout the day on Thursday. Severe gusts are likely and there is a risk of some disruption. Due to the combination of storm surge, spring tides and onshore winds there is a potential risk of coastal flooding.

A status Red warning has been issued for Cork, while parts of North Munster and Galway and Mayo have been issued with a status orange warning.

The status yellow warning for Wexford — and other countries — was issued at 15:00 on Tuesday and is valid until Wednesday 19 August 2020 at 23:59.

The well-respected Carlow Weather Twitter account has also weighed in on the upcoming warning. View one of their tweets below:

The nationwide warning comes after days of heavy rainfall in some parts of the country, with floods causing damage to roads and property in Cork over the weekend.
