Don't put away your layers just yet. The gale force winds are gone for now, but blustery showers will remain throughout the day.

Met Eireann's 'Code Orange', weather warning which will 'impact significantly on people in the affected areas' has been removed and replaced with the lower 'Code Yellow'.

Wind warnings are in place for Leinster, Connacht, Donegal, Monaghan and Cavan with the gusts predicted to reach up to 120km/hr in northwestern coastal areas in particular.

This morning will see consistent winds with outbreaks of rain, particularly in the west.

And temperatures are expected to reach 8 to 11 degrees throughout the day, before dropping to 6 degrees this evening.

Rain and wind will ease this evening.
