Met Éireann has just issued a Status Yellow rainfall warning for seven counties in Ireland.

A wind warning for the entire country is in place from Sunday at 2pm until Tuesday at 6am with gusts of between 80 and 110km/h expected. South to southeast winds are expected to reach mean speeds of between 50 and 65km/h with gusts of between 80 and 110km/h.

The winds will be strongest along Atlantic coastal counties at first but will extend countrywide through the course of Monday afternoon and evening.

Residents can expect up to 50mm rainfall over the period, with the potential for higher amounts on hills and mountains and the possibility of localised spot flooding.

"The rain and strong winds will spread eastwards to most places during the afternoon turning persistent and heavy". However, it will be a rainy day along the west coast and generally cloudy elsewhere. "Highest temperatures of 11 to 14 degrees with fresh to strong and gusty southeast winds, veering southwesterly later in the day".

The rain will continue into Tuesday morning over eastern counties but it is expected to clear quickly.

Both warnings are valid from 9am this morning and will last until tomorrow.

Otherwise Tuesday will be a mild day with highest temperatures of between 13 and 16C degrees.

A Met Éireann spokesperson said Wednesday is looking a little better and will be mainly dry with sunny spells.

Thursday will be warm and mainly dry with sunny spells in most areas.

The midlands will get the best of the weather next weekend, with daytime temperatures hitting highs of 17 degrees. It will be a bit cloudier in the west with a risk of some rain or drizzle along the coast.
