Some of the showers will be heavy, with hail and an increasing risk of sleet and snow showers as the evening goes on.

It will also be foggy - especially on the hills - but on a brighter note it won't be that cold (11 to 13 degrees). Highest temperatures 4 to 7 degrees.

The warning, which covers Donegal, Galway, Mayo and Kerry, will be in effect until 11pm tonight.

Hours after issuing a weather warning for seven counties in light of the expected arrival of Storm Caroline on Thursday, Met Éireann have issued a second status yellow wind warning for four counties that comes into effect on Wednesday.

An Atlantic storm will pass close to the north coast of Scotland on Thursday morning.

The UK Met Office is reporting that the Arctic air is already arriving in the north this morning, but temperatures will drop through the day in the south.

Fresh, gusty northwesterly winds will bring scattered showers over areas of Ulster, Connacht, and west Munster in the afternoon.

Another warning is in place for Thursday from 3am until 8pm, as Storm Caroline hits Scotland, and will also generate strong and blustery winds over Ireland.

Friday is also expected to be bitterly cold, but with some sunshine.

According to Met Éireann, those counties can expect southerly winds "of 50 to 65 km/h - with gusts of 90 to 110km/h along coastal areas".
