Unsettled weather is on the way as Storm Diana heads towards the country.
The worst of the wind and the rain is expected on Wednesday, but Met Eireann says conditions will deteriorate from tonight.
The recent cold and sunny spells are set to be blown away by heavy rain and gales, some severe, in the middle of the week.
