Strong winds for Donegal and Mayo -- more widespread wintry showers Connacht/Ulster

Brief intro post as I prepare the forecast, noticed that Met E have orange level wind warning in place for later morning to mid-afternoon time periods for Donegal and Mayo (from myself, would say WSW 80-120 km/hr). Also yellow level wind warnings more widespread in north and west, and wintry precip alerts (yellow status) for much of higher portions of Connacht and Ulster, could apply locally in west Munster. Will leave actual content to people with a bit more time. Stay safe.

Thanks for starting the thread MT.

Focus in this country seems to be on anything but the weather for the last few days!

Very tasty on the road from C'bar to Galway this morning. Car was all over the place!!
Heavy flooding at the quay in Westport also going off FB pictures.
Good job Portwest didn't get their planning otherwise they'd be under water!!!

Very strong gusts here in west Dublin. I think everyone’s attention is elsewhere so this one could sneak up on a lot of people.

Be careful driving out there.

(came here to get away from all the news.... take care guys)

Just checked the Met rain radar and it looks like there is a squall line coming in across Co Cork; wonder if it'll produce some lightning.

Been very windy all morning from NNW - we even had some sore hail this morning at 0820h... it was driven by the wind and hurt the face.

(location near Riverstick Co Cork)
