Met Eireann has issued a status yellow rainfall warning for parts of the country today, while there will be a risk of flooding over the weekend.

The weather warning is for heavy rain in Wicklow, Donegal, Galway, Mayo, Cork and Kerry, and will last for 24 hours.

It doesn’t look much better for the rest of the weekend, with wet and windy conditions set to sweep over Ireland tomorrow.

After a mostly dry morning, rainfall is expected to spread across the country in the afternoon.

Further heavy rain on Saturday means there is a risk of flooding in parts of Munster and Leinster, Met Eireann has warned.

It will grow cooler Saturday night with lowest temperatures of 3C - 5C and further spells of rainfall.

Unfortunately it doesn’t end there - you’ll need your raincoat and umbrella again on Sunday.

After another wet and windy day, temperatures could drop as low as 1C on Sunday night with the possibility of some frost developing.
