Mayo County Council Weather Update

Posted in Local News on January 13, 2020.

The Status Orange wind warning  for Mayo, Donegal, Galway, Leitrim and Sligo has been reissued by Met Éireann and now extends until midnight tonight.

Update: As Storm Brendan tracks away from Ireland, southwesterly winds will continue to reach mean speeds of 65 to 80 km/h with gusts of 100 to 130 km/h, higher in exposed areas.

There is a significant risk of coastal flooding due to the combination of high spring tides and storm surge.

Valid: 14:30 Monday 13/01/2020 to 23:59 Monday 13/01/2020
