A status yellow rainfall warning has been issued for three western counties from 10pm on Monday.

The alert has been issued for Donegal, Galway and Mayo, and it will remain in place until 5am on Tuesday morning. 

"Heavy rainfall tonight (Monday night), and for a time on Tuesday morning may cause localised flooding,” Met Éireann said.

“There'll still be a fair amount of cloud and lingering drizzle in places. During the afternoon (Tuesday), persistent rain will move in from the southwest and spread northeastwards. Highest temperatures of 15C to 17C degrees with moderate southwest breezes.”

Heading into the rest of the week, Met Éireann said it’s likely to remain unsettled with spells of rain and windy at times.

There will be sunshine and blustery showers on Wednesday, some heavy and possibly thundery with fresh, gusty northwesterly winds. Highs will range from 12-15C as Wednesday night will continue blustery with further heavy showers.

Thursday and Friday will see a mix of sunshine and showers with strong breezes and sometimes heavy bursts of rain. Highs will be in the mid teens but it will begin to feel cooler by Friday evening.

There will be further rain or showers next weekend, but some drier intervals also as temperatures drop slightly, as highs will fluctuate between 12C and 15C.
