It’s a wet start to the week… with more rain on the way.
Met Éireann has issued a Status Yellow rain warning for Munster, Connacht, Carlow, Kilkenny, Laois, Longford, Wexford, Offaly and Westmeath.
The national forecaster warns that heavy and persistent rainfall is expected during the period “with some heavy bursts occurring in short intervals of time”.
Lightning strikes have also been detected in Cork and Waterford this morning and there is potential for flooding.
Tuesday will start out a little better; mist and fog will slowly clear on Tuesday morning with some sunny spells developing and it’ll be largely dry at first before wet and windy weather moves into the west by early afternoon.
The weather warning is valid until midnight tonight, Monday, October 14th, 2019.
