Status Yellow warning for Roscommon
Met Eireann has issued a Status Yellow wind warning for County Roscommon as Storm Brian approaches this weekend.
South or southeast winds, later becoming northwest will reach mean speeds of 55 to 65 km/h with gusts up to 110 km/h. The strong winds will occur in various parts of the country during different time periods, with winds in northern areas probably not peaking until Saturday afternoon.
The warning is valid until Saturday 21 October 2017 at 22:00
On Saturday the centre of Storm Brian will track into the Irish Sea with moderate winds for a time over Ulster and North Leinster but very windy elsewhere with storm force west to northwest winds along southwestern coasts – especially during the morning. Showers or longer spells of rain, with a risk of thundery downpours, will continue to feed in across the country. Top temperatures of 10 to 13 degrees.
Showers will become mostly confined to western and northern coasts on Saturday night and a lot of areas will be dry. Strong northwesterly winds will gradually ease overnight and become westerly in direction. Lowest temperatures overnight will be 7 or 8 degrees.
There’ll be sunny spells and scattered showers for much of Sunday, but later in the day a spell of persistent rain will sweep through the country, turning heavy for a time. Temperatures will be between 12 and 14 degrees and moderate, occasionally fresh, southwest winds will back southwest to south. Sunday night will become mostly dry as the last of the showery rain clears eastwards.
