Weather Warnings Lifted But Power Outages Across The Country
Two separate weather warnings across the country have now been lifted, but the knock on affect of the adverse weather conditions overnight has resulted in a number of power outages.
The ESB says up to 6,000 homes across the country are without power this morning.
A yellow rain warning for Connacht, Donegal, Wexford, Wicklow, Clare, Cork, Kerry, Tipperary and Waterford was lifted at seven o'clock this morning.
Meanwhile, a yellow wind warning was lifted at nine o'clock for all counties in Leinster as well as Cavan and Monaghan.
Wet and windy conditions overnight with heavy rain have led to some localised spot flooding and fallen trees which has promted a warning from the AA.
They're advising motorists to expect debris on the roads and keep further back from the vehicle in front.
Met Eireann meteorologist Deirdre Lowe says the worst of the weather will clear before lunchtime.
"Heavy rain and southerly gales are still gusting to 90 or 100 kilometres per hour, and these will continue to affect East Leinster and East Ulster for a couple of hours yet this morning."
"There'll be some spot flooding but the rain will clear by around mid-morning and the southerly winds will ease and brighter conditions further West will extend across the country."
