Met Éireann Issues 17 Counties With Status Orange Weather Warning

This weekend - as with all weekends since all those clumps of space rocks mutually agreed to shack up together and call themselves to become 'The Earth' - there will be some weather. This weather however will be slightly more remarkable than other weathers and as such Met Éireann have deemed it necessary to hit the panic button.

Specifically, we're talking about the medium-sized, orange panic button, as opposed to the full-blown red-alert issued in anticipation of Hurricane Ophelia. To put the level of recommended panic in context, your anxiety levels should be approximately equal to how you would be feeling if you were in a supermarket and bump into the mother of an ex-girlfriend, and after a very stilted conversation, you look down to realise that your t-shirt is covered in marinara sauce*. That is the approximate level of panic that Met Éireann would like you to have.

They have issued a Status Orange warning for the following seventeen counties: Galway, Sligo, Mayo, Roscommon, Leitrim, Cavan, Donegal, Dublin, Kildare, Laois, Longford, Louth, Wicklow, Offaly, Meath, Westmeath, Monaghan. There is also a Status Yellow warning in effect for every other county.

The Orange warning is for snow and ice expected in these areas and goes into effect for a 24-hour period from Saturday 23:00 to 23:00 Sunday.
