Drivers are being warned of hazardous conditions on the roads this morning after heavy rain in many places overnight.
A Status Orange rainfall warning remains in place for Cork and Waterford until 6pm this evening.
A status yellow rain alert also still applies to Kilkenny, Wexford, Kerry, Limerick and Tipperary until 6pm.
A yellow wind warning’s also in effect for Donegal, Mayo, Cork and Kerry until 7pm.
The Road Safety Authority’s Brian Farrell is advising motorists to watch out for cross-winds.
“The danger I suppose from the wind is debris being blown down onto the road – fallen trees, branches,” said Mr Farrell.
“But of course your vehicle can also be impacted by the winds especially on open routes like dual-carriageways and motorways, where you could get blown off course.
“And that’s particularly relevant for trucks and busses who really should be mindful of the dangers on those exposed routes.”
