Met Éireann has issued a yellow wind and rain warning for three Irish counties this evening.
The alert level has been issued for Kerry, Cork and Waterford and will apply from 4pm to 11.30pm.
“Wet and windy tonight with heavy rain and possible spot flooding. Strong south to south-east winds with gusts of 70 to 100 km/h,” warned Met Éireann.
There are also yellow storm and small vessel status warnings in all Irish waters and the Irish Sea until the early hours of Wednesday morning, with south easterly winds expected at times reaching gale force 8 or strong gale force 9.
Met Éireann said it would become cloudy tonight, with outbursts of rain gradually spreading across the country from the south-west, becoming very stormy.
It will be wet and windy overnight, becoming drier again before showers return, mainly in the south and west, with winds easing before the rain stops.
Lowest temperatures of 1-3°C in the south and west and 4-6°C elsewhere.
It will be mostly clear and light tomorrow with showers later moving in from the southwest and highs of 9-13 with moderate southerly winds.
Wednesday will be mostly dry with early sunshine, with rain developing later and highs of 7-10.
Thursday will see a mix of sunny spells and blustery showers, worst on the Atlantic Seaboard, with highs of 9-11 with moderate to gusty southwest winds. Frosty overnight, with similar conditions repeating on Friday and Friday evening.
The weekend is likely to be restless with lots of wind and rain.
