A third weather warning has been issued in Ireland

Strap in lads, it's going to be a windy one.

Earlier today, two weather warnings were announced for the whole country - and now, another has been issued.

A yellow warning has been set in place for Leinster, Cavan, Monaghan, Roscommon, Cork, Tipperary and Waterford.

The warning that was set in place this morning will now continue into Monday, December 9.

The weather forecaster said: "Southwest winds later veering northwesterly will reach mean speeds of 50 to 60 km/h with gusts of up to 100 km/h at times during the period."

The status orange wind warning covers Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare, Kerry and Limerick from Sunday, December 8 at 9am until Monday, December 9 at 6am.

Met Éireann said that Storm Atiyah will track between Iceland and Ireland on Sunday generating a swathe of very strong winds across the country.

Southwesterly winds later veering northwesterly will reach mean speeds of 65 to 80 km/h with gusts from 110 to 130km/h. Due to a combination of high seas and storm surge there is a possibility of coastal flooding in some areas.
