How long will the winds last ?

Winds are expected to remain quite strong throughout the rest of the day, making it not the best days to spend near the coast.

Gusts will stay around 40 mph until later tonight, as the impact of Storm Brian finally moves away winds will eventually ease overnight.

The strong winds will mean that temperatures will feel much cooler 8C through the day too.

“The rain will ease through the morning with some brighter and sunnier spells developing. Strong winds, especially along Irish Sea coasts, will ease slowly through the day”.
