Yellow Weather advisory for wet and windy weather issued by Met Éireann

Stormy weather follows hot on the heals of polar front

Heavy rain and wind expected

Risk of thundery downpours on Monday evening, says Met Eireann

Commuters are facing a stormy trip home on Monday evening as Met Éireann has issued a Weather Advisory for a front of wet and windy weather is set to sweep across the country.

The Status Yellow advice from Met Eireann comes into force at 5pm Monday, Feburary 12 and is valid until 6pm Tuesday, February 13.

The forecaster says a spell of wet and windy weather, with a risk of thundery downpours, will sweep eastwards over the country during Monday evening and night.

Gusts between 90 and 110km/h are likely to occur in Atlantic, southern and later eastern coastal fringes for a time. Additional accumulations of snow are likely during the period also, mainly in parts of west Ulster and north Connacht.

Meanwhile, county council gritting trucks have been out on roads on Sunday night as the temperature is set to dip to -3 degrees below freezing as the cold snap continues to grip.

A Met Éireann Status Yellow weather warning remains in place around the country. Further showers of hail, sleet and snow are forecast for tonight in places as a polar front crosses Ireland.
