The worst can be expected on coastal areas and exposed hills and mountains, where wind speeds will occasionally exceed these forecasts.

Along with heavy winds, Galway is also expected to experience heavy rain throughout the night and into tomorrow which will be strongest on Friday morning.

The status yellow wind warning for Donegal which will be in place from 6am to 9pm on Friday has been expanded to include county Sligo.

And another yellow weather warning has been issued for Clare and Kerry. There Met Eireann is also forecasting winds of 50-65km/hr, with gusts reaching up to 110km/hr.

That warning will come into effect at 7pm this evening and last until 5pm on Friday.
