Cork County Council has issued a weather warning for areas on the south west coast, tonight and tomorrow.

A deep Atlantic depression is approaching from the southwest and will track east over Ireland on Friday night and early Saturday.

It is expected to generate some unseasonably strong southwesterly winds on its southern flank with the strongest winds affecting southwestern and southern coastal counties later Friday and early Saturday, some squalls of 80 or 90km/h are possible in coastal areas.

Rough seas are expected with some heavy thundery rain or showers at times also.

Take care out there, folks!
