MET Eireann has issued another wind warning for Kerry for Tuesday.

The Status Yellow warning is valid from 2pm this afternoon until midnight tonight.

A deepening depression is expected to track eastwards across the centre of Ireland, (Galway to Dublin) this evening with a band of very strong winds on its southern and western flanks, which will affect coastal counties of the southwest, south and possibly parts of the east coast later.

Southwest to west winds are expected to increase to mean speed of 50 to 65km/h, with gusts of 90 to 110km/h this afternoon in coastal counties of the southwest and south, with the severe winds becoming northwesterly and possibly transferring to parts of the east coast later this evening or early tonight. Winds will be at their strongest in exposed coastal areas.

Kerry and seven other counties — Wexford, Wicklow, Galway, Clare, Cork, Limerick and Waterford — will be affected. It comes hot on the heels of Sunday night’s weather warning for the county.
