Storm Erik will be reaching Ireland soon bringing damaging winds to the country along with many other parts of the United Kingdom.
There will be frost and the chance of some snow in the north of the country towards the end of the weekend when falling rain meets cold air.
The forecaster expects the Storm to hit on Friday bringing Status Orange winds of up to 130kmph to some counties.
A Yellow rainfall warning is also in place for Donegal, Galway, Mayo and Kerry, with between 30-40mm of rainfall and some spot flooding expected.
Erik is the sixth named storm this season, after Ali, Bronagh, Callum, Diana & Deirdre.

EA wanted Battlefield V to sell around 8.3 million units but only ended up around 7.3 million. We took a very deliberate strategy around how to launch this game .
The Status Orange warning is in place until 1pm today, while the yellow warning is valid until 6am on Saturday.
Met Éireann said: "Increasingly windy overnight, with south to southwest winds increasing strong to gale force and gusty by morning".
The most danger from the elements is on the coast, as winds are approaching and in some cases are expected to exceed hurricane level (more than 50mph).
Severe gusts of up to 130km/h are expected, with average wind speeds of up to 80km/h.
Police Scotland advised driver caution across Highland, Angus, Aberdeenshire, Moray, Perth and Kinross, Stirlingshire, and Argyll and Bute.
Widespread blustery showers will continue on Friday night, and some of the showers will be heavy with a risk of hail and isolated thunderstorms.
