Welcome to December.

THE WEATHER WARNINGS are coming thick and fast these days.

After the weekend’s stormy spell, we’re in for more strong winds over the next 24 hours.

It won’t be THAT bad though… The latest alert from Met Éireann is a yellow warning – the lowest on the service’s scale of advisories.

It affects:

  • Wexford
  • Donegal
  • Galway
  • Leitrim
  • Mayo
  • Sligo
  • Clare
  • Cork
  • Kerry
  • Limerick
  • Waterford

And according to Met Éireann:

Southwest winds will gradually strengthen through today and tonight with mean speeds 50 to 65 km/hr and gusts to 90 km/hr. Exposed coastal fringes will be most affected with the strongest winds in the Northwest tonight.

The warning was issued at 6am and lasts from 8am this morning until 8am tomorrow.


It will be dull in most areas today with scattered outbreaks of rain and drizzle, and misty conditions on hills and along exposed coasts. A few brighter spells may develop in the East.

It will stay mild enough though – with temperatures between 12 and 14 degrees.

We’ll have largely changeable weather for the next few days, with a likelihood of wet conditions on Thursday. Friday evening and Saturday are likely to be rainy too.
