Three separate yellow warnings for wind and rain are in place this afternoon as the country experiences unseasonably wet and windy weather.
Up to 50mm of rain is expected to fall in parts of the country today.
Two yellow wind warnings are in place for Cork and Kerry and Waterford and Wexford while a yellow rain warning is in place for Clare, Cork, Kerry, Waterford, Galway and Mayo.
Alan O'Reilly from Carlow Weather told Newstalk the rain is down for the day.
“It is really unseasonable weather,” he said.
“Very wet and windy with a storm really tracking right over us which is bringing that very heavy rain. It is going to continue to be heavy rain really through the rest of today and into tonight as well.
“There is some risk of spot flooding too with some areas seeing 50mm of rain.”
While today’s conditions were forecast, many people have been complaining that their weather apps have been wrong lately - with the weather turning out better or worse than expected.
Mr O'Reilly said there is no glitch in the system.
“The problem there really was we had very showery weather where some people had really heavy showers and complained about how much rain there was and then some people missed them all and thought it was lovey,” he said.
“So, the apps can’t really predict that but they can predict when it is this kind of constant rain.”
Met Éireann meteorologist Bonnie Diamond said the rain will remain heavy for afternoon before clearing.
“Later this evening, this low-pressure system will clear to the east away from Ireland, taking with it the strongest winds,” she said.
“But we will still see quite a breezy day tomorrow with some blustery scattered showers and some sunny spells.”
Sunshine and showers are forecast to continue for much of the weekend, with the showers turning heavy on Sunday.
