The Donegal Mountain Rescue Team (DMRT) is advising people to avoid high ground ahead of today’s forecasted severe weather.
Met Éireann has issued a countrywide Status Yellow thunderstorm warning for this afternoon.
“What an incredible week of beautiful weather we have had. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end,” a spokesperson for the volunteer DMRT said.
“We strongly advise avoiding high terrain during these potentially dangerous weather circumstances. Don’t put yourself at unnecessary risk until the warnings have abated – stay safe.”
