“Southerly winds veering west to northwest will reach mean speeds of 55 to 65km/h at times, with gusts of 90 to 110km/h, highest in coastal areas and on exposed hills and mountains where winds may temporarily exceed these thresholds,” Met Éireann said.

Dry intervals are expected, with the best of these in north Ulster.
