A wind warning has been issued for Kerry for early tomorrow.

KERRY received a battering from Storm Frank on Tuesday and Wednesday morning with parts of Killarney being particularly badly affected.

While the rain and wind has abated in many places, according to Met Eireann, there’s more bad weather on the way.

They have issued a Status Yellow Wind Warning for Kerry, Wicklow, Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare, Cork and Waterford for tomorrow from 7am until 2pm.

They say it’ll be windy during Thursday, with strong and gusty winds expected, with mean speeds between 50 and 65 km/h.

These winds will gust 95 to 110 km/h at times. Winds south to southwest in direction at first, will soon veer southwest to westerly and are likely to be strongest in coastal counties of Connacht and also in Donegal.

A band of heavy showers will spread up from the southwest during the morning and early afternoon, some of the showers will be of hail and some will be thundery.

There’s a risk that some of the showers will turn wintry over higher ground later, in northern parts, but the showers will become isolated by evening.

Hopefully the rain will be gone for the fireworks in town at 7.20pm in Denny Street and later for the midnight countdown.
