A weather warning...

for rain.


Forget the fact that the past few days have been glorious with temps in the mid to high 20s because it's all going to change for these counties over the weekend.

Met Éireann has said that there will be a Status Yellow Rainfall warning for Kilkenny, Wexford, Cork and Waterford

They say that: "Heavy thundery downpours are expected at times during Saturday evening/overnight, with the potential for torrential downpours in short periods leading to spot flooding.

"Rainfall amounts of 25 to 40mm expected in places."

The warning is valid from Saturday 26 May at 9pm to Sunday 27 May at 6am. 

The rest of the country, however, is in for some good news as it is set to become even warmer over the coming days as Continental air continues to feed in across Ireland but there is a threat of scattered thunderstorms.

Sunday is expected to be warm and humid with highest temperatures typically ranging 18 to 22 or 23 degrees Celsius, warmest across central and northern areas. 

Some southwestern counties will experience slightly lower maxima with onshore breezes. Some scattered showers early on but they will tend to become more isolated with spells of sunshine through the day, all in near calm. Thundery showers may move in across eastern counties around nightfall though. 

You really can't predict the weather in Ireland, can you?
