After a week of pretty consistent rainfall, following some sun, Met Éireann have forecasted some seriously heavy rain for the next 24 hours, particularly in Southern counties.

A status yellow flood warning has been alerted to counties Dublin, Kilkenny, Louth, Wexford, Wicklow, Meath, Cork and Waterford.

Met Éireann’s Siobhan Ryan stated:

What’s happening is we had been dominated by a Scandinavian high for the last while, but that is going to be replaced by a more typical Atlantic flow, which brings with it more wind and rain.

Sunday isn’t looking like a great day for a lot of the country, it will be very up and down, and in general it will be wet for most of the country, except for the midland counties.

However, there is some good news, as next week looks to be a big improvement with dry weather returning.

The AA and Gardai have voiced their concern for motorists to be extra vigilant in these tricky conditions.
