Share this article


Say goodbye to the blue skies we've seen in recent days because now, we're in for a wet one.

Met Eireann has issued three weather warnings, as an Atlantic storm approaches the country.

Firstly, a Status Orange rainfall warning will come into effect from 7pm in counties Cork, Kerry, Tipperary and Waterford.

Meteorologist at Met Eireann Liz Walsh says up to 80milimetres of rain could fall in the next 24 hours.

"This could lead to flooding, on what's already sodden ground."

Meanwhile a status yellow rainfall warning kicks in for the rest of the country, excluding Donegal, from 9pm this evening.

Up to 50 millimetres of rain is forecast on higher ground.

From blue skies on Sunday to flooding on Monday, Liz Walsh says an Atlantic storm is to blame for the bad weather.

"A big low pressure out on the Atlantic was rapidly depended over the western Atlantic and that's created a storm which is coming our way.

She says the poor weather is going to last until Wednesday.

Finally, the last of the three advisories is a status yellow wind warning.

Gusts of up to 110km an hour can be expected on some coasts tonight with warning in effect in Munster, Wexford, Donegal, Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Carlow and Kilkenny.

It runs from 9pm tonight until 6am tomorrow morning.
