STRONG WINDS BLOWING in from the Atlantic have led to a status yellow weather warning from Met Éireann that’s set to continue into the night.

The winds will average between 45 to 55km/hr but gusts of up to 100km/hr are to be expected over the weekend.

The Cliffs of Moher closed its visitor centre this afternoon and told people to away from the cliffs because of gusts they put at 150 km/hr.

The visitor centre said that conditions at the site were “extremely dangerous”.

The forecast for this evening predicts scattered showers in western parts of the country, with the eastern half being spared more rain until later on.

Temperatures will be cold, between 1 and 4 degrees according to Met Éireann.

The strong winds are being predicted to continue into tomorrow and Sunday with gales throughout the country and temperatures remaining between 7 to 9 degrees.

Sunday morning is set to be the wettest part of the weekend with some possible spot flooding.
