This looks serious!
Saturday looks mainly dry until after dark and then a spell of "very windy and wet weather arrives on Sunday", according to www.carlowweather.com.
Forecaster Alan O'Reilly said that one model "continues to show some very strong gusts for Sunday into Monday".
He warned: "One to keep an eye on."
