Met Éireann Issues Status Yellow Weather Warning

Elaine Stenson By Elaine Stenson - October 10, 2018

Met Éireann has issued a status yellow advisory warning for the country ahead of a potential storm arriving on Thursday.

High winds and heavy rain could hit the country on Thursday night and into Friday morning, with the west and north west set to be worst affected.

Met Éireann's Joan Blackburn explains how the potential storm's developing:


"At the moment, the track of the storm centre is a bit further to the west than that area of low pressure there a few weeks ago, but there are some very strong winds around it as well. The storm hasn't been named yet - it's under continuous review - and at the moment we are advising people of this. If it should upgraded to a storm or an orange warning then that warning will be issued later on this morning."

I love to travel and I've lived and worked in six countries outside Ireland!

When I'm not at work, I can be found doing yoga or frequenting the pilates studio or else just grabbing an afternoon nap - since starting the 6am news shift with Nova, I have developed an obsession with getting a good night's sleep!!

I also love to cook and as you'd expect I'm a complete news junkie at heart.
