Met Éireann warn of ‘poor driving conditions’ as the weather takes a turn

Olivia Hayes

It’s not looking good for the day.

If you’re about to get in the car to drive to work, school, or college (or wherever else you might be going) then you’d want to be very careful on the roads as Met Éireann has warned of “poor driving conditions” today.

The weather forecaster says that it’s going to be a blustery one, with rain falling over most of the country.

It said:

“Today will be a blustery day, with strong and gusty southerly winds. Rain over Connacht and much of Ulster for a time this morning, heavy in places, with some poor driving conditions, but drier there this afternoon. Brighter and mostly dry elsewhere, with the clouds breaking locally, to allow some sunny spells to develop. Top temperatures of 15 to 18 C.”

Tonight will also be quite windy:

“Breezy tonight with fresh southerly winds. A few patches of mist and drizzle scattered about, but most places dry, with a few clear spells in places. Mild, lowest temperatures 11 to 14 C.”

Definitely bring a brolly.
