The warning comes as Storm Dylan approaches Ireland, bringing wind speeds of 60 to 80 km/hr. Highest temperatures will range from between 5 to 8 degrees across the country.

Met Eireann expects that south-west winds from storm Dylan will reach mean speeds of 50 to 65kph, with gusts up to 100kph, from late Saturday night until the early hours of Sunday morning.
