Rough morning on the roads with wind and rain for Kildare
7:18 Wednesday 14th of February 2018

Conditions this morning will be wet and windy, with widespread rain.

A Wind Warning is in place across Kildare and the country at large until later with average winds speeds of 50 to 60 km/hr with gusts of 90 to 100km/hr.

Watch out for wind-blown debris, especially on back roads, and be especially mindful of pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists.

Beware of vehicles veering across the road - due to buffeting winds - and the reaction of other road users.

High sided vehicles, motorcyclists and cyclists are particularly vulnerable to strong winds.

Pedestrians and Cyclists: Take extra care when near traffic or crossing the road in extremely windy conditions as sudden gusts can blow you into the path of an oncoming vehicle.


Brighter conditions with sunny spells and just a few scattered showers will prevail in the afternoon.

Maximum temperatures will reach 9 to 12 Celsius.
