WIND WARNINGS REMAIN in place for 14 counties, with gusts of up to 110km per hour expected.

A status yellow warning began yesterday morning and remains in place until 3pm today for the following counties: Dublin, Louth, Wexford, Wicklow, Meath, Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare, Cork, Kerry and Waterford.

Met Éireann says mean winds of 55 to 65 km per hour are expected, with gusts of 90 to 110 km per hour at times.

Today is expected to be windy and cold with strong and gusty southerly winds and gales on coasts.

Rain warning 

A separate status yellow rain warning for Cork and Kerry kicked in at 6am today and will remain in place until 6am tomorrow.

Met Éireann says 30 to 50 mm of rain are likely over west Cork and over south and west Kerry. Larger amounts of rain are possible on mountains.

Many places will be dry, but scattered outbreaks of rain in southwestern and western coastal counties this morning will become heavy and persistent there during the day and spread further east over Munster later.
