The remnants of Hurricane Ophelia will pass close to Ireland on Monday
MÉT Éireann has issued a Status Yellow weather advisory for Ireland over the coming days.
The forecaster said: "A combination of a vigorous Atlantic weather system and the remnants of Hurricane Ophelia will pass close to Ireland on Monday, and has the potential to be a high-impact event in parts of the country.
"There is a lot of uncertainty as to the exact evolution and movement of this weather system during the coming four days, but storm-force winds, outbreaks of heavy rain, and very high seas are threatened.
"MÉT Éireann will maintain a close watch on the evolution and issue further advisories and warnings as these are warranted."
The alert is valid from Monday October 16 to Tuesday October 17.
