Well, it was good while it lasted but it seems like Ireland's summer is over, for the time being anyways.

Met Eireann took to Twitter on Friday morning to announce that a rainfall warning is being put in place for half of the country.

The status yellow rainfall warning has been issued for all of Leinster, Cavan, Monaghan, Donegal and Waterford.

They say that: "Thundery downpours in places may lead to rainfall accumulations of 25mm-40mm"

It is valid from Friday night at 9pm until Saturday morning at 9am.

Most of the country will be dry at first on Saturday night but heavy rain or showers will move up over the country through the night, with particularly heavy falls possible in the east and southeast in the second half of the night.

Lowest temperatures will be between 9 and 13 degrees from north to south and winds will be mainly light to moderate from a variable direction, becoming northwesterly by morning.

There will be further rain on Sunday morning in Ulster but it will clear away and become drier generally for a time in the afternoon, with sunshine and scattered showers through the day, with most frequent showers occurring in the northwest of the country.

Highest temperatures of 19 to 21 degrees with moderate west to southwest winds.

We hope it doesn't affect your weekend plans too much...
