A few days of fairly calm and mild weather are expected across the Province early this week before the winds pick up again on Wednesday evening.

According to the Met Office, today and tomorrow will be mainly cloudy and damp will relatively pleasant temperatures approaching 10C.

“Most people will be waking up on Monday to a cloudy start with some patchy rain around. The south and in the south east is where it’s going to be heaviest,” a spokesman said.

“Gradually it will dry out by late afternoon although it won’t be as bright as Sunday. Tuesday will be another cloudy day with a few patchy showers but generally quite a dry day. The outlook is much the same for Wednesday.”

Gale force winds and heavy rain caused widespread disruption to travel and to sporting fixtures over the weekend.

A section of the Warrenpoint and Rostrevor coastal road was partly washed away and heavy rain and the Ulster v Scarlets rugby match at Ravenhill was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

The Met Office spokesman added: “The big strong winds are easing for the next couple of days. Temperatures are quite mild at 8 or 9C, with even the odd 10C during the day.

“They will fall down to around two or three degrees overnight which is fairly average for this time of year. Tuesday night will probably be the coldest night at around two degrees, with a patchy frost around.

“Back to a more blustery, showery day into Thursday and Friday.”
