MONDAY MAY BE the first day of spring, but no-one’s told the weather.

We’re in for another bout of stormy weather tomorrow night and over Monday, with strong winds and heavy rain set to lash the country.

According to Met Éireann’s forecast for Sunday night:

“It will become extremely windy overnight with strong to gale force and gusty southwest winds developing.

Winds will be strongest along the Atlantic seaboard.

On Monday it will be extremely windy across the country “and possibly stormy along the north and northwest coasts, with the strong to gale force and gusty southwest winds giving some damaging gusts at times”.

It will reach around 10 or 11 degrees on Monday, turning cooler again on Tuesday as conditions return to normal with some bright spells and showers.
