Met Éireann's Joan Blackburn has the latest outlook: "It's Thursday night into Friday that people are concerned with and we are concerned with it.
"Some very strong winds overnight tomorrow night and Friday morning and some very heavy, possibly thundery rain as well.
"The winds will be quite severe particularly in the west and north-west of the country in the early hours of Friday morning.
