Some windy weather approaches
It will be cold and frosty this morning - ahead of wet and windy conditions on the way. However Co. Kildare is excluded from a list of counties in the West affected by a weather warning because of the wind.
Met Eireann says there will be spells of sunshine through the morning but cloud will steadily thicken from the west during the day. Outbreaks of rain will move in from the Atlantic to affect Connacht, Ulster and Munster late this morning and early afternoon, but staying largely dry further east until evening time. Becoming breezy as southerly winds gradually strengthen increasing fresh to strong and gusty on Atlantic coasts. Afternoon temperatures ranging 6 to 11 degrees.
It will be windy overnight with outbreaks of rain, persistent and heavy at times near southern and western coasts. There will be hill and coastal mist also. Minimum temperatures of 8 to 11 degrees early in the night. South to southeast winds will be fresh to strong and gusty with gales along coasts.
