Summer lovin'... Hurricane Gert to make Manchester sizzle once more

However, the tropical storm is to run out of steam before it can hit the west coast.

Hurricane Gert was the second hurricane of the Atlantic season so far, and the strongest with wind speeds of up to 165 km/h.

Met Eireann has said we can expect top temperatures of 20C this weekend and that will be in Munster.

It turns out that a Status Yellow rainfall warning has been in place since midday on Sunday and is expected remain active until 4pm, as Ireland gets battered by the tail-end of Hurricane Gert.

Rainfall warnings have been issued by Met Éireann for the counties of Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo and Sligo as a low pressure area passes by Atlantic coasts.

Continuing changeable and unsettled weather is expected up until Monday.

Kyrgios beats Ferrer, to face Dimitrov in final
The 6-foot-10 Isner, a 2013 W&S Open finalist, planned to win the second set and extend the match. Sixth-ranked Spaniard Muguruza ousted Russian eighth seed Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-2, 5-7, 7-5.

Yesterday Met Office meteorologist Emma Sharples said: "Rain remains quite slow-moving throughout eastern Scotland on Friday".

"Some heavy, possibly thundery bursts will occur locally, especially over parts of Connacht and Ulster" are forecast for tonight.

Skies will cloud over from the west, with outbreaks of rain and drizzle spreading east through the day. Farmers should aim to graze their drier paddocks first - focusing on these paddocks will allow you to make the best use of your grass and keep poaching to a minimum.

The outlook for Wednesday indicates an end to the ex-hurricane's effect on our weather for a bright and fresh day with sunny spells.

In short, a lot of wet and windy weather is on the way.
