The winds are potentially damaging, so it’s time to nail down those trampolines again!
It will continue to be very windy, particularly here in the North West, throughout today, moderating in the early evening, said Met Eireann.
Met Eireann says it is getting colder, but is ruling out the possibility of snow in the next week or so – although some online forecasters are doing so.
Met Eireann’s outlook for the rest of the week is:
The early part of Sunday night will be mainly dry, clear and cold with a slight ground frost locally. As the night goes on, cloud will increase bringing outbreaks of rain to many places and a rise in temperatures. Rather cloudy conditions, with scattered outbreaks of rain, will prevail for Monday; winds will back southwest, light to moderate, and temperatures will be normal or slightly above. Monday night will remain cloudy and mild, with further outbreaks of rain in most areas. Little change in these cloudy, mild and damp conditions is expected for Tuesday, although southwest winds will strengthen during the day and these strong winds will persist overnight. It may become mainly dry in the eastern half of the country during Wednesday but the west will remain wet, with rain likely to become heavier along the western seaboard later; winds backing southerly will remain strong everywhere and temperatures will stay a few degrees above normal. On Wednesday night, persistent rain will spread to all parts of the country but winds veering southwest will steadily moderate. This rain is set to clear east during the first half of Thursday, with sunny spells following and showers only affecting the Atlantic seaboard; as winds veer southwest to west, it will turn cooler. Thursday night will be mainly dry and cold, with clear spells and some frost. Through Friday and next weekend, however, mild and breezy conditions will return but there will be rain or drizzle at times, especially for western areasTags:
