The Wind Warning is for Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare and Kerry.
Southerly winds associated with Storm Frank will reach mean speeds of 65 to 80 km with gusts of 100 to 120 km/hour, strongest in coastal areas on Tuesday afternoon, evening and early night, said Met Eireann in its warning.
The warning is valid from 12:00 noon tomorrow, Tuesday, until midnight.
Whilst the centre of Storm Frank will be 200km off Tory Island the tailwinds associated with it will hit Donegal hardest, said the BBC’s Barra Best.
The storm comes as many people remain cut off from telephone services across Donegal since a lightning storm a week ago.
