A weather warning remains in place in Kildare this morning as what is being dubbed as Storm Hector continues to leave its effect on the county.
The Status Yellow weather warning has been in place since yesterday evening due to the threat of strong winds and heavy rain, and the superb sunshine of a week ago now feels like some time ago. The wind and rain will be strongest in Leinster until 9am this morning.
In coastal counties of Connacht and Ulster there will be severe and potentially damaging gusts as very strong southwest winds become westerly. Very windy elsewhere also, especially over the northern half of the country. From late morning onwards, winds will gradually ease. Sunny spells and scattered showers today, heaviest in the west and north. Highest temperatures of 15-19 degrees.
Clear spells and scattered showers tonight, mainly in the west and north. Lowest temperatures of 8-10 degrees with moderate southwest breezes.
