Meanwhile, a Status Orange Gale Warning has been issued for Irish coastal areas including Clare.

South to southeasterly winds will reach gale to strong gale force this evening (Tuesday) and tonight from Belfast Lough to Carnsore Point to Loop Head, increasing to storm force for a time between Roches Point and Valentia overnight.
