A Status Yellow wind warning is in effect for the entire country this Monday, and strong winds and rain are expected to reach County Kildare by this evening.

South to southeast winds will reach mean speeds between 50 and 65km/h with gusts between 80 and 110km/h. The winds will be strongest along Atlantic coastal counties at first, according to Met Eireann, but the strong winds will extend countrywide through the course of the Monday afternoon and evening.
