The warning was issued at 2pm on Monday and is valid until 8pm on Monday evening.

Met Éireann warned that heavy thunderstorms are expected to develop throughout Monday with severe downpours, hail, and some spot flooding in places.

However, not everywhere will be affected by the thunderstorms as, due to the localised nature of them, some parts of the country will remain dry, with only 13 counties expected to be impacted.

The public are warned to be aware the thunderstorms may cause spot flooding and disruption in places.

Top temperatures are expected to hit 12 to 15 degrees, with light to moderate south to southwest winds throughout the afternoon.

The showers are expected to gradually become lighter and more isolated early tonight, with clear spells developing and minimum temperatures of three to seven degrees.

Meanwhile, tomorrow will see a dry and sunny start in many places before showers in west Munster will spread further inland during the morning and afternoon, turning heavy and thundery again with a risk of hail and spot flooding.

The showers will tend to be more isolated across parts of the north and east, which will remain mostly dry.
