Wednesday's warning (in place from 6am to 11pm) predicts southerly winds of 50-65km/h with gusts of up 90-110km/h in coastal areas.

Scattered snow showers will occur later Thursday, Thursday night and into Friday, while slight to moderate accumulations are possible with up to 3cm in parts.

Despite the mild conditions this morning, Met Éireann have warned that weather conditions are set to take a sharp turn on Thursday which will see freezing temperatures, as well as the risk of hail and thunder.

North and northwest counties are said to be most at risk, as well as higher ground elsewhere.

If you live in the west of the country, Met Éireann are encouraging you to exercise caution ahead of an Atlantic storm dubbed Storm Caroline by the UK Met Office.

Temperatures are set to drop and it will be become bitterly cold over the next few days in the region.

The wind warning will be in place from 3am on Thursday morning until 8pm that evening.

Motorists are also being warned that the impact that falling snowfall or sleet can have on visibility may make it more hard to see vulnerable road users.
