"A band of rain is approaching from the Atlantic and is forecast to stall over the western half of the country on Thursday and Friday, leading to persistent and heavy falls in places," the forecaster said.
"This may result in some river flooding as well as localised surface flooding."
The advisory will be updated on Wednesday, at which point Met Éireann may issue a weather warning.
