A Status Yellow warning is in operation for Ireland from 5am Friday to 6am Saturday. For a shorter period, Status Orange warnings are in operation for counties Galway, Mayo and Donegal.

Winds will be most severe in Atlantic coastal areas where there will be dangerous sea conditions. The combination of low pressure, high seas and high tides will lead to localised coastal flooding.

The Status Orange warning is in operation for Galway and Mayo from 5am to 1pm Friday and for Donegal from 9am Friday to 6am Saturday.
