Gale force winds are expected this weekend as Storm Ciara heads our way.

Met Éireann says unsettled weather is expected to develop across Ireland and Northwest Europe. The change will happen as very cold air sweeps out of Canada into the North Atlantic.

Wet and windy conditions will move in on Friday.

A further spell of heavy rain is expected on Saturday and this will be joined by strong and gusty winds with a possibility of Status Yellow warnings, according to meteorologists.

Conditions are expected to deteriorate further on Sunday as Storm Ciara tracks to the north of Ireland.

The storm was named by the UK Met Office on Wednesday and follows Storm Atiyah and Storm Brendan earlier this year.


Met Éireann says the early days of next week are likely to remain very unsettled, with generally strong winds, and potentially stormy conditions at times along with high seas.

There will be spells of heavy rain interspaced with cold showery conditions, some of the showers turning wintry at times and some possibly with hail and thunder.

Temperatures are expected to remain below average.
