A level one tornado warning has been issued for Ireland today by a European storm forecaster.
The European Storm Forecast Experiment - also known as Estofex - says a level one warning is the lowest warning out of three, and says there's just a 5% probability of a tornado hitting the country.
The news comes after Met Eireann earlier issued a weather warning, with wind speeds expected to reach over 110 kilometres per hour in some parts of the country today.
Met Eireann says western coastal counties will be worst affected, with a risk of spot flooding also forecast.
