A new Status Orange weather warning has been issued for two counties this morning

You might be better off staying inside.

We're pretty sure this time last year was when the weather started to take a turn and all we saw were blue skies and sun.

Not this year, though. This year we get a storm.

An additional weather warning has been issued this morning for Tipperary and Waterford as Storm Hannah reaches the country.

The weather warning states:

"In addition to the yellow wind alert for these counties: Southwest winds veering northwest will reach mean speed of 65 to 80km/h and gusts of 110 to 120km/h for a time tonight."

This weather warning is in place from Friday 26 April 2019 10pm to Saturday 27 April 2019 2am.

Meanwhile, there are still two weather warnings in place for 20 counties around Ireland.

A status orange wind warning has been put into place for Cork, Clare, Kerry and Limerick. It will come into effect at 4pm tomorrow and last until 5am on Saturday, April 27.

A forecaster warned that people should be "prepared for possible disruption and power outages."

They added:

"[The weather will be] becoming stormy on Friday evening and overnight as Storm Hannah moves in.

"Southerly winds, later veering northwesterly will reach mean speeds of 65-80 km/h with gusts of 110 to 130 km/h."

Meanwhile, a status yellow wind warning has been issued for 16 counties: Connacht, Carlow, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Longford, Wexford, Wicklow, Offaly, Donegal, Tipperary and Waterford.

It will come into effect at 11pm on Friday and end at 9am on Saturday, April 27.

A forecaster said:

"[The weather will be] becoming very windy on Friday night and for a time on Saturday morning.

"Southerly winds will veer northwesterly and reach mean speeds of 50-65km/h with gusts of 90 to 110 km/h."

Yep, definitely staying inside this weekend.
