Met Éireann has issued two new weather warnings in the wake of Storm Aiden passing over Ireland.

Meanwhile, a Status Yellow rainfall warning is currently in place for Cork, Kerry, Limerick and Tipperary.

It started at 10am this morning and will also end at 2am tomorrow morning.

Persistent rain is expected today and tonight and will give accumulations of 25 to 40mm, with localised flooding.

Met Éireann also issued a weather advisory for the entire country this weekend which will be in place until 6pm tomorrow.

The forecaster is warning of very unsettled weather with spells of heavy rain leading to surface and river flooding.

It will continue to be very windy and stormy at times with some severe and damaging gusts possible.

Some coastal flooding is possible also due to the combination of low pressure, high tides and onshore winds.

It comes as Storm Aiden left thousands of homes and businesses without electricity yesterday, with around 8,000 customers affected at the peak of the power outages.
