The four warnings have been issued across fourteen counties.

Earlier this week, we reported that Met Eireann issued a high wind warning, with the counties under the warning being Galway, Mayo, Clare, Cork, Kerry, and Limerick.

Today (Wednesday, November 18), Ireland's meteorological service have issued a further three weather warnings, with another eight counties affected by them.

The first new warning has been issued to Leitrim and Sligo, and will be in action from 9pm tonight until 2am on Thursday. The warning states the following: "West to northwest will reach mean speed of 50 to 65km/h with gusts of 90 to 110km/h. The combination of strong winds coupled with high tides brings an increased risk of coastal flooding."

The second new warning is issued to Donegal, with the same actionable times, and the same high wind warning description.

And finally, the latest warning has been issued to Dublin, Louth, Wicklow, Wexford, and Meath, also with the same actionable times and warning description.

Additionally, the UK Met Office issued a high wind warning to Antrim and Down, which will be in action from 9pm tonight until 3am on Thursday morning, and they described the warning as follows: "Strong winds are expected overnight which may lead to some disruption."
