Ireland is braced for a wet and windy evening with Met Eireann issuing two status yellow weather warnings.

A nationwide wind alert comes into force at 9am with gusts of 110km/h forecast until 6am on Tuesday.

Met Eireann said: "South to southeast winds will reach mean speeds between 50 and 65km/h with gusts between 80 and 110km/h.

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

A second alert for rainfall also comes into force at 9am for 24 hours and the following counties are affected: Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Clare, Cork, Kerry, Tipperary and Waterford.

Warning what is to come, a forecaster said: "Rainfall accumulations of 25 to 50mm expected over the period, with the potential for higher amounts on hills and mountains. Localised spot flooding possible."

It's not all bad news though, as the weather is set to take a turn for the better mid-week.

The mercury is set to soar as high as 18C on Thursday, with sunny spells also forecast.

Talking about today's weather overall, Met Eireann wrote on their website: "Dry and bright in many places at first. However cloud will thicken with rain developing in Atlantic coastal counties during the morning in strong southerly winds.

"The rain and strong winds will spread eastwards to most places during the afternoon turning persistent and heavy.

"Wet and windy with strong to gale force southerly winds and severe gusts. Heavy rain also with the continuing risk of local flooding. However later in the night the rain will clear to scattered showers over the western half of the country. Overnight lows of 9 or 10 degrees Celsius."

Looking ahead to tomorrow, the National Forecaster added: "Wet at first Tuesday morning over eastern counties but clearing quickly and it will brighten up. There will be showers at times during the day but some sunny spells as well.

"Windy also with strong and gusty southerly winds, but these will decrease fresh later. Highest temperatures of 13 to 16 degrees Celsius."
