48 hour wind and rain warning in place from 8pm tonight

There's a warning about rain and powerful winds for 48 hours, starting tonight.

There are yellow alerts for unseasonably wet weather and strong winds across the country.

On-shore winds, high tides and a strong sea swell mean coastal flooding is a real risk too.

Met Éireann forecaster Matthew Martin says the warnings may have to be upgraded as the day progresses..............
