There's some seriously windy weather on the way - the west will get the worst of it

There could be gusts of up to 100km/h.

Updated 7.12 am 

EXPOSED AREAS ARE likely to get the worst of it with a national wind warning remaining in place until this afternoon.

Yesterday, Met Éireann issued a status yellow warning and it’s due to last until at least 3pm this afternoon.

The mean wind speeds will range from 35 to 55 km/h. Trees will get a bashing and umbrellas will turn inside out.

However, Met Éireann believes gusts of up to 100 km/h are possible in exposed areas, speeds at which structural damage is possible.

Parts of the country will be spared the heavy winds but forecasters saw it will be blustery in most places.

Heavy showers will mostly affect the west of the country and will spread east throughout the day and may turn thundery. It will be mildest in the east of the country.
