With a cold blast of weather and even snow showers forecast for later this week, Ireland will also have to bear the brunt of Storm Caroline that is expected to hit the United Kingdom in the coming days.

"Northwest winds of 55 to 65 are expected to gust 100 to 110 km/h - strongest winds in coastal areas and over high ground".

Two "Yellow" alert weather warnings for those on the west coast of Ireland remain in effect, warning residents in Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare and Kerry to be caution of strong blustery southerly winds.

The Met Office said the high winds were expected to damage buildings and cause flying debris, as well as power cuts, severe travel disruption and risky waves.
