Take care today.

An Orange status wind warning remains in place for nine counties today as Storm Eleanor continues to affect the country. Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare, Cork, Kerry and Limerick remain under the warning as gale storm winds are expected.

Met Eireann has said, “Westerly gale to storm winds together with high tides and exceptionally high seas will result in coastal damage and flooding. Damaging gusts likely inland also.”

The warning remains in place until 2pm today.

Meanwhile, a yellow status warning is in place for Leinster, Cavan, Monaghan, Roscommon, Tipperary and Waterford, where strong and very gusty westerly winds will continue until 2pm.
