Windy today with southerly winds becoming very strong and gusty in most places, and reaching gale force strength on exposed coasts. Rain in the west will spread to all areas by early afternoon with some heavy falls in places. A clearance to scattered showers, some heavy and possibly thundery, will follow later in the afternoon.Met Éireann Website
So basically if you're still at home, don't leave the house.
And if you're already out and about, don't try to use a brollie later because both it, and you, could get blown away.
