Storms to ease off but rain is set to continue
THE gales that have battered the north coast are set to subside today, as a Met Office yellow warning for high winds across Northern Ireland and southern Scotland expired overnight.
According to the UK’s expert forecasters, today will begin mainly dry and bright, but as the day goes on, strong westerly winds will push thickening cloud and rain into Fermanagh and the west, reaching most areas of Northern Ireland by lunchtime.
In the afternoon the Met Office expects conditions to become brighter — but showers will still be with us, the experts say.
Today’s maximum temperature is expected to be a cool but seasonal 7C.
Tomorrow is set to continue changeable, with sunny spells and scattered showers forecast for all areas.
