After a miserable period of weather, this week is shaping up to be more of the same.

The warning lasts from Tuesday at 8pm to 6am on Wednesday morning, with winds of up to 110kmh expected.

“Southwest winds are expected to reach mean speeds of between 55 and 65 km/hr, gusting to 110 km/hr at times on Tuesday night,” explain Met Éireann on their official website.

Meanwhile, rain will reach the west by this evening, and it looks like it will remain wet throughout the week.

A misty night with minimum temperatures of 4 to 7 degrees in northern counties but temperatures will rise to between 9 and 11 degrees in all areas later in the night,” the weather chiefs forecast.
