A Status Yellow wind warning has been issued for three counties tonight.

Met Éireann issued the warning for counties Cork, Clare and Kerry.

It comes into effect tonight at 11pm and will remain in place until midday tomorrow, Thursday.

According to the forecast, southerly winds are expected to reach speeds of 55 to 65km/h with gusts of 90 to 110km/h.

Winds will be strongest in coastal areas and on exposed hills and mountains.

Given the time of year when many trees are in full leaf, there is a greater potential for wind related impacts.

Road users and pedestrians are asked to take additional care and to be aware of the potential for fallen branches and other obstacles.
