Watched a high sided lorry getting hit by a very strong gust this morning - don't think the driver was expecting it. Strong winds since this morning and still gusting ....

Will be a grand soft night, another problem from this rainfall could be that it will still be lying around Saturday night when surface temps could drop below freezing making for an icy time.

Wind sounds ferocious in Sligo town at the moment, maybe because it's not from the usual direction but definitely sounds like more than 80kph.
