There’s good weather on the horizon… but not just yet.
Met Eireann has issued a Status Yellow rainfall warning for Cork, Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Clare, Kerry, Tipperary and Waterford.
Rainfall accumulations of 25 to 50mm are expected between Monday and Tuesday morning, with the potential for higher amounts on hills and mountains.
Localised spot flooding is also possible, so motorists are warned to take extra care on the county’s roads.
There’s also a wind warning in place across the country, with gusts between 80 and 110km/h through the course of the Monday afternoon and evening.
Happily the weather is due to brighten a bit on Tuesday evening, with afternoon highs of 14 or 15 degrees Celsius.
