A number of flights travelling between Dublin and London this morning were delayed due to high winds as Storm Katie continued to push across England and Wales.

As well as the delays, many early morning arrivals at Heathrow and Gatwick had to be diverted, and some flights were cancelled due to poor weather conditions.

Siobhan Moore, spokeswoman for Dublin Airport, said the storm is unlikely to present any further major disruptions to flights headed to and from the London airports today.

The storm has dominated the Easter weekend in the UK, but thankfully is not expected to affect Irish weather.

“Storm Katie is gone, it’s over in the North Sea at the moment and it’s not going to affect us,” a Met Eireann spokesperson told independent.ie.

It will be a cool day with sunshine and showers, becoming cold and frosty tonight, with temperatures plummeting close to freezing.

We can expect a similar day tomorrow, with showers initially in the west and then spreading east across the country in the afternoon.

Although it will be cool, there will be some bursts of sunshine as well throughout the day.
