Orange Wind Warning Issued As Storm Gareth Approaches Ireland

Orange Wind Warning Issued As Storm Gareth Approaches Ireland

It will remain valid until 9am on Wednesday, while the rest of the country will remain under a yellow wind warning.

The notice - which says the whole Island will be affected - comes into force at 8pm tonight and runs until 3am tomorrow morning.

It's added heavy rain could develop which may cause standing water on roads.

Motorists are being urged to exercise extreme caution if driving between now and 12 midday on Wednesday when the weather warning is due to be lifted.

The Met Office has warned the United Kingdom to expect some disruption to travel while the weather warning is in place, along with delays for high sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges.

"The winds did ease off but we still anticipate there could be some strong winds with the arrival of Storm Gareth". The strongest in the morning rush hour are probably going to be around Northern Ireland and also western coastal parts, particularly western Scotland and north-west England.

A third Storm Gareth warning covers all of Ireland.

A flood alert is also in place in parts of Calderdale.

Forecasters said that at least two inches of rain was possible over higher ground in Cumbria in England.

Gusts of 70-75mph are likely along northern coasts, perhaps up to 80mph for a time.
The northwest winds will eventually moderate early on Wednesday night, before backing westerly and freshening again overnight.
