Meteorologist Alan O’Reilly of Carlow Weather emphasizes the late naming of Storm Elin, predicting damaging winds, especially in the northern and eastern regions. Flight delays are likely in Dublin.

The storm has left hundreds of homes and businesses without power, prompting ongoing efforts to restore electricity, with many areas expected to be back online by 4pm.

Met Eireann warns of a very windy and stormy day, projecting sustained high winds and severe gusts. Both Yellow and Orange Status Wind warnings are in operation, particularly affecting Dublin, Wicklow, and Donegal.

The weather agency forecasts overnight rain retreating to the north and northeast, followed by sunny spells and blustery showers, some heavy with a chance of hail. High temperatures range from 7 to 11°C amidst strong to gale force west to northwest winds.

Tonight, strong westerly winds will ease, providing mostly clear weather with rain affecting northern parts. Fresh southerly winds will move into Connacht and Munster, with temperatures ranging from 4 to 7°C.

Tomorrow, the wet and breezy weather will extend across the country, with outbreaks of thundery rain in the northwest during the afternoon and evening. Very windy conditions are expected, with the possibility of storm force winds.

Looking ahead, the new week will remain unsettled with rain or showers but less windy, gradually becoming drier by midweek. Monday starts mostly dry with crisp sunshine, while Tuesday brings cloudy conditions with scattered outbreaks of rain, mist, and drizzle. Winds are expected to weaken, leading to dry and clear conditions after dark. Stay informed and stay safe during Storm Elin’s passage through Ireland.
