Weather warnings and sunshine: this weekend’s very mixed forecast

Galway daily life & style weatherproof Galway in style for the Capital of Culture

Met Éireann has issued a status yellow wind warning for Galway for tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon. Southwest to west winds will reach mean speeds of between 55 and 65 km/h with gusts up to 110 km/h possible.

Maximum temperatures will be between 8 and 10 degrees, so it will be a much warmer day than the past few days.

Although drier intervals will develop at times during the day, rain, some heavy and prolonged, will spread through the afternoon and evening.

But the good news is that the rain will stay off on Sunday afternoon, for the games at Pearse Stadium and the installation of the new Bishop at Galway Cathedral.

Some sunshine might even emerge at times, but it will be cold, with temperatures not expected to exceed 3 degrees.

Flags and scarfs at the ready. Gaillimh abú!
