Yellow Weather Warning For Hailstone

 

Met Eireann have issued a weather warning for hailstones for this morning and afternoon 31st of January 2018 between 12pm and 3pm.
 
Hailstones are a year round occurrence in Ireland and can create very dangerous driving conditions due to their unpredictable and localised nature. The RSA have produced a short information video offering simple but effective advice on what to do if you encounter a sudden shower of hailstones on the road. In addition, cruise control should be switched off when driving in hazardous weather conditions.
If you find yourself caught in a sudden downpour of hailstones, here are some tips to be aware of from the RSA:
 
- Reduce your speed without breaking 
- Warn other drivers with your hazard warning lights
- Avoid sudden steering movements or breaking suddenly
 
 
Don’t forget to keep an eye on forecast and travel bulletins. For more information, check out this informative video from the RSA:
