It will be windy today but Co.Kildare won't be badly hit
Residents of Co. Kildare have so far escaped the worst of the weather brought about by the tail end of stormy and wet conditons coming in off the Atlantic Ocean.
Outbreaks of showery rain will occur today but there will be some dry and bright intervals also, these mainly in the east. It will become becoming blustery this afternoon with fresh to strong and gusty southwest winds. Highest temperatures of 16 to 20 degrees.
Tonight will start off dry mainly dry and blustery in Leinster and Munster. Outbreaks of rain will affect parts of Connacht and Ulster. Later in the night, persistent rain will move in from the west and spread eastwards – but again Co. Kildare will not be badly hit. Southerly winds will strengthen. Lowest temperatures of 9 to 12 degrees.
