A status yellow wind warning has been issued for the entire country and will remain in place between 9am today and 6am on Tuesday. Met Eireann is warning that rainfall accumulations of 25 to 50mm are expected over the period, with the potential for higher amounts on hills and mountains.

A SECOND status yellow rainfall warning is in place with the notice primarily issued for Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Clare, Cork, Kerry, Tipperary and Waterford.

While winds of up to 65 kilometres per hour and gusts of up to 110 kilometres per hour are expected in Atlantic coastal areas between 9 am this morning and 6 o'clock tomorrow morning.

Temperatures will range from 11º to 13º, as southerly winds become strong and gusty everywhere during the day - with gales on exposed west and south coasts. Few of the showers may be heavy. However, later in the night, the rain will clear to scattered showers over the western half of the country. Moderate to fresh and gusty southeast winds will veer south to southwest overnight.


The Irish weather service has forecast temperatures as high as 18°C for Thursday, but it'll be wet and windy before then.

Otherwise Tuesday will be a mild day with highest temperatures of between 13 and 16C degrees.

Wednesday will be warm and mainly dry with sunny spells, the best of these in the east.

The warning is in place until Tuesday at 11am but don't be surprised if it gets pushed out even further or if an upgraded warning is given also. It will be a bit cloudier in the west with a risk of some rain or drizzle along the coast.
