WEATHER – Heavy weather this week with gale force winds and heavy rain nearly everyday and especially over the next few days. Heavy Rain from Thursday through to Monday and weather warnings in certain areas of the country. Temperatures will be moderate at 14 – 15 degrees and winds high and mainly Westerly. Very high winds on Friday and this will push the rain through quickly in the region. Need to keep a careful eye on the weather this week as it is very turbulant. (

WIND –  Big week of wind ahead, Thursday will be quiet with settled Easterly winds, Friday will pick up considerably with winds up to 35mph and the same on Saturday coming from the East. Sunday and Monday will drop to 20mph but then pick back up to gale force on Tuesday and possibly Wednesday. Wind direction will change to Southerly and Westerly from Sunday onwards.
SEA STATE and SWELL –  Sea state will be calm on Thursday and calm on inshore waters on Friday and Saturday even with the high winds as the direction will be offshore for most inshore areas. As the wind turns to Southerly and Westerly the conditions will change dramatically and the sea will become rougher especially on Tuesday and Wednesday as the wind gets higher and so does the swell up to 11 foot on Tuesday.
