metJUST when you think we’re in for a nice spell of weather, Mother Nature has other plans.

The cold snap is over and the weather is milder, sunny(ish) and calm, but that’s going to change somewhat tomorrow according to MET Eireann.

They’ve just issued a ‘Status Orange’ wind warning for Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare, Cork, Kerry and Limerick, valid from Friday at 6am to Saturday midnight.

“A period of very windy weather will begin on Friday morning and will continue until later on Saturday evening. Southwesterly winds reaching mean speeds of 65 to 80 km/h and gusts of 110 to 130 km/h likely. High ground and exposed coasts will be most at risk,”  according to the MET Eireann website. It will be dry though.

The good news for today  is that it will be milder than recent days with highest temperatures 10 or 11 degrees and mainly dry but there may be patches of drizzle, especially at the west coast.

Tonight will be largely dry, but breezy with temperatures no lower than 7 or 8 degrees.

On Friday the southwest to south winds will become strong, with gales at the coast. Temperatures will be up to 13 degrees in places and it’ll stay mainly dry albeit cloudy.
