A quick glance at Windguru shows a similar result, with between nine and ten knots forecast for most of the day, from a steady NNW direction. The same site shows the wind beginning to veer late this evening, before turning changeable and light on Friday as a new low pressure system moves in from the west and the wind direction establishes itself.
Friday sees Ireland between two systems so chances are that conditions will be unpredictable.
After that, Saturday and Sunday looks like strengthening southerlies, with the breeze gradually clocking right throughout the weekend and building to a forecasted max of 20 knots on Sunday as the low tightens and sweeps across the country.
The low pressure system will bring rain and unsettled conditions with it.
