Coastal communities along the west and south coasts are bracing themselves for possible flooding due to high tides and gale force winds.
It comes as Storm Jonas makes its way to Ireland after hitting the US at the weekend. Rather than snow, the weather system will bring heavy rain.
A flood warning from Met Éireann came into force in the early hours of this morning and applies to coastal areas of counties Wexford, Waterford, Cork, Kerry, Clare, Galway and Mayo.
A Status Yellow wind warning is also in place for the entire country - with gusts of 110 kms per hour expected.
Met Éireann Forecaster Deirdre Lowe has said the high winds and heavy rain, combined with high tides, could cause problems along coasts.
“This enhances the risk of coastal flooding in these parts,” said Lowe
“So the risk is there, but the heavy rain will clear through and it will be an improving picture for the afternoon.”
