IRELAND MAY HAVE avoided the cold weather this Christmas but Met Éireann has warned that high winds are set to hit parts of the country later today.

Gale force winds are set to strike southern coastal areas this morning, with strong gales developing this evening across all coasts.

Met Éireann has issued a weather warning and has also advised small crafts to take extra care.

Temperatures are set to remain relatively high for December at between 8 and 10 degrees Celsius across most of the country for today. However that’s about as good as it’s going to get for the rest of this week: rain and strong winds are set to last from tonight until the weekend.

Met Éireann says rain will spread from the southwest this evening as it becomes windy everywhere, with temperatures dropping to 2 degrees. Tomorrow is set to be very windy with a risk of severe gusts in Atlantic coastal regions, with rain and drizzle across most of the country.
