Status Yellow wind warning issued for the country
Met Eireann has issued a Status Yellow wind warning for the entire country, which will come into effect tomorrow night.
According to the national meteorological office, south-west winds are expected to reach mean speeds of between 55kph and 65kph – gusting to 110kph at times – tomorrow night (Tuesday).
Issued earlier today at 11:00am, the warning will be valid from 8:00pm tomorrow night until 6:00am Wednesday morning.
Meanwhile, today will be mostly cloudy at first with a few patches of mist and drizzle.
The rest of the day will bring a mix of cloud, sunny intervals and just a few showers in the west and north-west. Highest temperatures will range from 7º to 11º in moderate to fresh westerly breezes.
Outbreaks of rain will reach south-west Munster this evening and will spread quickly north-east across the country overnight.
The rain is likely to be heaviest and most persistent in the west and north-west – but, rather patchy elsewhere.
Conditions for both spraying and drying will be poor all week on account of the wet and windy weather forecast, Met Eireann added.
