Wind gusts of up to 130 km per hour are heading for Mayo and the west coast on Sunday as Storm Atiyah blows in from the Atlantic.

Mayo, along with all western counties, will see a Status Orange warning in place from 9am on Sunday to 6am the following day. Yellow warnings will be enacted in the rest of the country.

Storm Atiyah is expected to track between Iceland and Ireland on Sunday carrying with it very strong southwesterly winds that will later veer northwest. Mean speeds of 65 to 80 km per hour will reach peaks of 130 km per hour in strong gusts.

Met Éireann has warned that there is a possibility of coastal flooding due to a combination of high seas and storm surge.
