Met Éireann issue weather warning ahead of Storm Caroline

Good times may never seem so good, but Caroline is not going to be sweet.

Met Éireann has issued a warning forecasting strong winds with the arrival of Storm Carloline on Thursday night.

The Status Yellow alert is a national wind warning, especially for Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare and Kerry.

Although Ireland is set to avoid the worst of the storm that will bring severe winds to Scotland it will generate strong and blustery winds over Ireland too with gusts of 100 to 110 km/h - strongest winds in coastal areas and over high ground.

The warning is in place from 03:00 Thursday morning until Thursday evening at 20:00.

Before Storm Caroline arrives, the weather is expected to be very wet, with heavy rain across the country on Wednesday. There will be sunny spells and patchy rain on Thursday as the temperature is set to drop.

Friday will bring more cold weather, with scattered showers of rain, hail, sleet and snow.

The early forecast is for a cold and wet weekend with showers turning more wintry as we head into next week.
