Met Éireann have issued a weather warning for Kerry

Bring the brolly...

Just when you thought you it was safe to get back in the water outside without an umbrella, Met Éireann hits you with another sucker punch.

Well, only if you're from Kerry...

Met Éireann have issued a status yellow rain warning for The Kingdom warning of heavy rain hitting the county over the next day or so.

The warning was issued at 11am on Friday and is active from 4pm on Friday until 9am on Sunday.

They've warned that Kerry will be hit with rainfall accumulations of 25 to 40mm, with mountainous areas the most adversely affected by the rain.

Elsewhere, rain is expected to become widespread this evening and tonight, heavy at times, especially in parts of the west and southwest.

However it will fade towards the morning, becoming patchier and lighter with mild temperatures of 9-12 degrees overnight.

Saturday will be a mostly cloudy, mild and misty day with patchy outbreaks of rain and drizzle, especially in the east and south during the morning.

Sunday will be mild, mostly cloudy and rather windy. There will be some persistent rain in northern areas at first but otherwise just scattered outbreaks of rain along with dry periods.
