Meanwhile, Cathal Nolan of the Midland Weather Channel says strong winds and gusts of up to 100kph across the midlands, can be expected

"An unusually strong area of low pressure is expected to deepen over the coming 24 hours and gradually push northeast wards across the country late Wednesday night and through the early hours of Thursday morning," he told Midland Weather Channel followers on Facebook.

"The highest wind speeds are expected to be in Atlantic coastal counties where gusts could reach as high as 130 kph. Gusts across the Midlands will reach as high 100 or possibly 110 kph," he continued.

"The winds may be strong enough to cause some disruption to power services, and the felling of some trees. I will continue to keep you posted on the development of this usually strong summer Atlantic storm."

Met Éireann say "South to southwest winds, veering westerly, will reach mean speeds of 55 to 65 km/hr with gusts of 90 to 110 km/hr. Winds will be strongest in coastal area.,"
