Oh, hello weather warnings. Nice of you to pop by once again but this time to RUIN OUR SUMMER.

Yup, if you thought that Met Éireann had given up on the shitty weather news, you would be hugely mistaken.

They have issued a Status Yellow Wind Weather Warning for five counties in total: Galway, Mayo, Clare, Cork and Kerry

They say that: "Later tonight (Thursday) and for a time on Friday morning, in coastal areas, southerly winds will reach mean speeds of 55 to 65 km/hr with gusts of up to 90 km /hr.

The warning was issued at 11am on Thursday morning and will be in place from midnight tonight until 9am Friday morning. 

In terms of the rest of the country. It will become mainly dry on Friday night and it will turn cold with minimum temperatures of 1 to 4 degrees as skies clear and winds become light. Some fog is possible as well.

Saturday will see something of a recovery in temperatures, back to between 12 and 14 degrees, in southeast winds. However, with low pressure nearby there will be widespread showers. Saturday night is looking mainly dry but cold again with minimum temperatures in low single figures. 

A similar day on Sunday, winds will be most likely easterly in direction with the track of the low pressure centre expected to be to the south of the country. There'll be further showers as a result, most frequent in the afternoon. Showers will die out on Sunday night with another cold night to follow.

The further outlook in to the early days of next week is for changeable conditions with mainly light variable winds and temperatures recovering to around normal for the time of year.

Here comes the summer, eh?
