Met Éireann has upgraded its wind warning to Status Orange for the entire country for Sunday morning.
Warnings for high winds and very heavy rain have been issued for the weekend, with a red marine warning in operation for northwest coastal areas, according to the National Forecaster.
Gusts of up to 130 kilometres per hour and stormy conditions are expected tomorrow. There will be a significant risk of coastal flooding, particularly on west and northwest coasts.
Today, during the afternoon, it will turn very wet across Munster, Connacht and Ulster with some spot flooding, rainfall elsewhere will be well scattered. Winds will strengthen and increase strong to gale force and gusty with severe gusts expected at times, and strong gales will occur along Atlantic Coasts with storm-force winds.
The rain will extend countrywide this evening with further localised flooding, especially across the western half of Ireland.
