A yellow rainfall warning by Met Eireann for counties Mayo, Sligo and Donegal remains in place this morning.

While a storm brewing in the Atlantic at present could hit the country with gusts of up to 150kmh later this week.

A yellow rainfall warning for Mayo, Sligo and Donegal is currently in place as a slow-moving band of rain continues to bring heavy showers, ranging from 25mm to 40mm.

Galway City Council's weather assessment team met yesterday to assess the approaching storm.

A spokesperson said Galway is experiencing a period of "very high astronomical spring tides", which will last until Thursday.

However, temperatures tomorrow are expected to reach up to 21C before the storm hits.

Met Eireann says that the storm brewing on Thursday into Friday will bring strong to gale force southerly winds that could potentially give some damaging gusts, especially in the west.
