Met Éireann have just confirmed the news we've ALL been hoping for

13th Jun 18 | News

We know there's a weather warning in place for tonight - but don't push the bbq's to the back of the shed just yet... 

Things have been cooling off a little over the past few days after the country basked in high temperatures for over a week and now it looks as if a real change is coming our way in the shape of Storm Hector. 

Met Eireann has issued Status Orange and Status Yellow weather warnings as Storm Hector bears down on the West and North of the country. 

 

The Status Orange weather warning applies to Donegal, Galway, Mayo and Sligo and is in effect from Wednesday (13/06) night at 09.00pm through until Thursday (14/06) at 10.00am. It warns of "southwest winds veering westerly, associated with Storm Hector, will reach mean speeds of 65 to 80 km/hr with gusts of 110 to 125 km/hr. Winds will be strongest in coastal areas."

The Yellow Alert also warns of high winds that will hit Cavan, Monaghan, Leitrim, Roscommon, Clare and Kerry. The alert warns of "south to southwest winds veering westerly, associated with Storm Hector, will reach mean speeds of 55 to 65 km/hr with gusts of 90 to 110 km/hr."

However, it's not all doom and gloom as Met Eireann have confirmed next week will "become warm again"!

Met Eireann said:

"Early next week there will be some rain or showers at times but a lot of dry weather and becoming warm again."
