Limerick motorists urged to excercise caution as weather warnings remain in place

Motorists are being urged to exercise caution

Gardai and the Road Safety Authority are appealing to road users exercise caution as a number of weather warnings are due to remain in effect overnight.

Met Éireann has issued a number of status yellow weather alerts – warning of heavy rainfall and strong winds across the country.

A national warning which remains in place until 6am on Tuesday states: “South to southeast winds will reach mean speeds between 50 and 65km/h with gusts between 80 and 110km/h.”

Two separate status yellow alerts – warning of heavy rainfall – remain in place for 15 counties across the country.

While there is no specific warning for Limerick, Clare, Cork, Kerry and Tipperary are all the subject of status yellow warnings.

Met Éireann says there could be up to 50mm of rainwall in places with a risk of localised flooding.
