A Status Yellow wind warning has been issued for the entire country

Batten down the hatches, folks.

A Status Yellow wind warning has been issued for the entire country.

The warning, which was issued on Tuesday morning, is in place from 7am today until 4pm.

Met Éireann has said that strong and gusty southwest winds will veer westerly early this afternoon with some "severe and damaging gusts".

It is also expected that heavy spells of rain will continue throughout the day as well.

With the weather warning only in place until 4pm on Tuesday, it is expected that it will be cold and blustery tonight with a mix of clear spells and showers.

The showers will be frequent across the western half of the country, with the risk of hail and thunder.

While it does look like conditions are going to improve on Wednesday, it will only be a slight improvement.

It looks like it's going to be cold again tomorrow, with a mix of sunny spells and showers. The showers will be frequent in Atlantic coastal counties, some with hail and thunder, with wintry falls possible on high ground.

We did say slightly...
