Caution is advised later tonight and early tomorrow as the tail end of Storm Jonas is set to bring heavy wind and torrential rain to many parts of the country.
Peak winds are set to arrive during the night and this could also have an impact on the commute in the morning.
Met Eireann are also forecasting some severe rainfall in places, which could lead to more flooding.

The storm, which was branded the ‘deadliest storm of the century’ after it claimed the lives of up to 20 people in America is expected to clear most of the country by lunch time tomorrow.
However another depression is set to move in across the Atlantic tomorrow evening.
