Met Éireann warns of gale force winds in Limerick as Storm Diana approaches

Met Éireann warns of gale force winds in Limerick as Storm Diana approaches

Continuing very windy into the afternoon; but the winds will gradually start to ease a little later; but still fresh to strong and gusty by nightfall, with gales still in southeastern parts.

A spokesperson for Ireland's national forecaster said: "At the moment we are experience severe weather, with severe winds and heavy rain".

He said: "We have a yellow warning for wind in the west of the United Kingdom for today and tomorrow". Some heavy rain or showers at times too, especially across the north and west, with some spot flooding.

Storm Diana is already causing major issues in England with early morning freezing fog making for treacherous travel conditions.

A Status Yellow wind warning has been issued for the rest of the country, valid from 5am to 6pm tomorrow.

Following on from very windy and wet weather on Monday night into Tuesday morning, the forecaster says warnings are likely as Strom Diana hits from the Atlantic.

Tito Ortiz Knocks Out Chuck Liddell In First Round Of Trilogy Fight
Ortiz had said prior to this card that his trilogy with Liddell would be the last time he stepped inside the cage. If you're wondering, the 43-year-old Ortiz is a considerable favorite to win tomorrow's bout.

Heavy rain and gales are expected to hit the United Kingdom later this week, as Storm Diana sweeps in from the Atlantic.

Storm Diana, named by the IPMA Portuguese weather service, is now threatening the Azores and is due to make itself felt over western parts of the United Kingdom on Wednesday.

"There remains a small chance that this system will intensify as it moves northeastwards bringing even stronger winds to southwest England, Wales and on into northern England and southeast Scotland".

And as for the remainder of this week: "Wednesday will be a wet and windy day".

A new cyclonic low, which will span 2,000 miles from the north of France to southern Greenland could be strong enough to warrant another name - Deirdre - before the weekend.
