Gales are expected in Shannon late Wednesday, perhaps severe for a time into early Thursday. Most Niton areas should see no hazardous winds Thursday, although strong winds or gales will affect Lundy, Fastnet, Irish Sea and Shannon. This pattern should repeat on Friday, although winds will be more sustained, with gales in Sole, Lundy, Fastnet and Irish Sea and severe gales in Shannon. Occasional strong winds are likely in all other areas throughout
