A WEATHER WARNING has been issued by Met Éireann, which says there is more heavy rain and gales to come.

It’s time to grab those brollies and wellies as its website notes that there will be “heavy rain this morning with a further 15 to 25mm in a few hours in the south, southeast and east”.

There will also be strong to gale force southerly winds that will gust at speeds of up to 100 km/h in the east and southeast this morning.

Met Éireann says that southerly winds will reach gale force or strong gale force this morning on Irish coasts and winds will even will reach storm force 10 for a time this morning on the Irish Sea.

Westerly winds will reach gale force this afternoon and evening on coasts from Mizen Head to Erris Head to Malin head and will reach strong gale force for a time this evening between Erris Head and Bloody Foreland, notes Met Éireann.

Heavy rain in October led to widespread flooding and subsequent damage across the country.
