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.
