Bring the jacket.

A Status Yellow rain and wind warning remains in effect on Friday morning for a number of counties in Ireland.

The warning came into effect at 2am on Friday morning and will remain in place until 2pm on Friday afternoon.

It affects Clare, Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo and Sligo.

Met Éireann said it will become wet and windy on Friday morning with strong and gusty southerly winds developing.

The forecaster also advised that heavy rainfall may cause some localised flooding and dangerous road conditions.

However, those in the west have reason to be cheerful as the rain will clear eastwards in the afternoon, leaving behind some sunny spells.

Highest temperatures will be between 15 and 18 degrees in strong and gusty southwesterly winds, veering westerly and easing with the clearing rain.

As for the rest of the weekend, Saturday will be a somewhat mixed day with Met Éireann stating there will be sunshine and showers, some of them heavy. There is also the chance of cloudier conditions developing in parts of the south and southwest along with outbreaks of rain during the afternoon and evening.

However, it will be mainly dry on Sunday so at least we have that to look forward to.
