The forecaster says very windy conditions are expected in Munster this morning.
A very windy start in southwest Munster this morning with some severe gusts possible at the coast. It will be a cool and blustery day with showers and longer spells of rain spreading across the country. There will be heavy bursts in places and some localised flooding is possible.

Highest temperatures today are to range between 11 to 14 degrees.
The outlook for the rest of the week is mixed. Tonight will be cold and blustery with clear spells and showers, some heavy and possibly thundery in Atlantic coastal counties with lowest temperatures of 4 to 8 degrees. Tomorrow will be fresh and breezy with sunny spells and scattered showers. The showers will become increasingly isolated later in the day. However, it will turn cloudier in the west and southwest by evening with the chance of some rain there before dark.
