Heavy rain and strong winds will continue to impact the western half of the country until Monday.

A status yellow rain warning is in place for Munster, Connacht, and Donegal until 10pm on Sunday.

Met Éireann has also issued a yellow warning for strong winds in counties Clare, Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo and Sligo until 12pm on Monday. The forecaster said winds of up to 50-65km/h and gusts of 90-110km/h are likely to cause disruption.

There will be a return to better weather on Tuesday across the country with highest temperatures of between 13 and 16 degrees, but Wednesday will be a wet day in many places, Met Éireann said.

Thursday will see a mostly dry start with sunny spells and similar temperatures of between 13 to 16 degrees.
