'Winds strongest along Atlantic coastal counties at first but the strong winds will extend countrywide through the course of the Monday afternoon and evening'. Localised spot flooding is also possible.

From 9 am Monday until 9 am Tuesday, the forecaster predicts heavy rainfall in Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Clare, Cork, Kerry, Tipperary and Waterford. Here up to 40mm is expected over the period, with the potential for higher amounts on hills and mountains.

"There will be a bit of morning rain on Wednesday, but once that clears it will dry up and start to get much milder, apart from the west coast, which will stay wet", she said.
