Southwest winds will reach mean speeds of 50 to 65 km/h with gusts of up to 100 km/h, according to Met Eireann. 

Gale force wings will kick in this evening from 5pm, with the weather warning in effect until 2am on Sunday.

Across the rest of the country it will also be very windy early tonight with strong and gusty southwesterly winds, and gales in coastal parts of the west and northwest.

A wet night ahead with further outbreaks of rain, which will be heavy especially in parts of the west and northwest. It will ease off in northern parts overnight, with lowest temperatures of 4 to 8 degrees. 

Tomorrow is set to be a cloudy or overcast day with further outbreaks of rain.

Rain will ease in parts of the south and east through the morning, though becoming widespread again in the afternoon. Highest temperatures of 11 to 15 degrees, say the national forecaster.

There’s good news for next week.
