The weather is going to put a dampener on any plans during the mid-term break this week.

Met Eireann has issued a status yellow weather warning as Storm Doris is set to wreak havoc with any mid-term break plans.

Winds are expected to reach average speeds of 50-65km/h tonight with gusts of up to 100km/h

Today started off dry but rain and drizzle will affect most of the country during the day and turn heavier during the afternoon. Heavy rain will develop countrywide on Wednesday evening with strong gale to storm force gusts. There will also be some thunder with a risk of hail, sleet and hill snow.

There is a wind warning in place for Munster, Connacht and Leinster. Some severe winds are expected later Wednesday night and on Thursday morning with gusts of 90 to 110km/h.

Thursday will be cool and windy with widespread blustery showers, some thundery with hail and sleet mixed in. 

Friday will be mainly dry and bright but cold with isolated showers in the north and west. 

However, the poor weather will return for the weekend with wet and windy weather forecast to arrive from the Atlantic on Saturday and Sunday.
