Met Éireann is set to include weather warnings for the North in its forecasts.
The move comes after some criticism that the forecaster's online graphics stop at the Irish border.
Met Éireann has supplied forecasts for the region since the forecaster was founded in 1937.
However, they are now in discussions with the British Met Office to include their warnings for Northern Ireland.
The head of forecasting at Met Éireann, Evelyn Cusack, told Sean Moncrieff they will be providing information supplied by UK authorities.
"What's new and what's planned is that we would just simply be displaying the Northern Ireland warnings, as issued by the UK Met Office, on our website.
"We won't be issuing the warnings because each national Met service issues the warnings for its own territory or own area.
"But we will be displaying the warnings on our own website."
She hopes this will take effect from September, which is the start of the new storm season.
"So hopefully this will be up and running - but it's dependent on a few things, and obviously things are held up at the moment, but that's the hope anyway".
She says it is a slightly unusual situation, given that each country applies different warnings.
"If you go on to the Meteoalarm system, Portugal doesn't display the warnings for Spain or Spain doesn't display the warnings for Portugal.
"But we just decided that it would be a good thing for Ireland because we are a small island, and there is a lot of cross-border travel."
"My colleagues from Met Éireann and in RTÉ we always give the weather for the whole island - it's the BBC that just include Northern Ireland, so don't be mixing us up now", she added.
The Irish warning system is based on thresholds of certain weather, whereas the British system uses impact as a measurement for its alerts.
