WITH JUST FOUR days to go until Christmas, the weather is still showing no signs of cooperating.

Met Éireann earlier issued a status yellow weather warning as strong winds hit the country this morning.

The weather warning, which was in place from 4am until 11am, said that winds would hit up to 100km/h, with the strongest winds expected in Atlantic coastal counties and exposed hilly areas.

Gale force winds are also expected on all Irish coastal waters.

Large parts of the country are also experiencing rain this morning, but Met Éireann has promised that dry conditions with sunny spells will spread across the country by this afternoon.

Fingers crossed.

The forecaster has now released a weather warning for tonight in Cork and Kerry, which will both be hit with between 25mm and 40mm of rainfall tonight.

The warning will be in effect from 7pm until 7am tomorrow.

Met Éireann has already said that there is virtually no chance of snow this Christmas amid the wet and warm weather across the country.

Temperatures remain unseasonably warm, hovering between 9 and 12 degrees Celsius across the country this morning.
