Met Éireann forecasts a particularly windy day along west and north-west coasts, with a status yellow warning for gusts of up to 110km/h in place till midnight tonight.

A rainfall warning is also in place in counties Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo and Sligo with heavy, thundery downpours expected to lead to as much as 50mm of rain by 1pm today.

There is also a general snow-ice warning for the country, which is in place until 8pm.

Gardaí are warning motorists to take extreme caution this morning along at the Sally Gap and along the Laragh/Roundwood Road (R755) in Wicklow and on the N16 Manorhamilton Road just outside Sligo town.

As the day goes on, we can expect widespread showers of rain, hail or sleet with a risk of thunder.

Tonight will be cold and frosty, with temperatures between 0 and 2 degrees, and icy patches developing in the midlands, east and north.
