Cavan, Monaghan, Tipperary and all of Leinster are affected by the warning, which comes into effect at 2pm on Monday until 10pm tonight.

However, the good news is conditions are likely to turn gradually more settled through the week as high pressure is set to dominate.

It will be dry for most counties and warm overall, with reaching the mid-20s towards the end of the week, according to Met Éireann.

Tuesday will see a generally cloudy start to the day with scattered patches of drizzle developing in western coastal counties. Elsewhere, it will be largely dry with sunny spells developing through the day. Highest temperatures will reach 18 to 22 degrees.

Wednesday will be a dry day for most counties yet again with plenty of sunny spells. However, it will be cloudier over western coastal counties with patchy light rain and drizzle developing there through the day.

Highest temperatures will hit 20 to 24 degrees generally, and between 18 to 20 degrees along western coasts.

Thursday will start quite cloudy with scattered patches of light rain and drizzle, becoming drier and brighter through the day, with sunny spells developing. Highest temperatures will reach 19 to 23 degrees.

Current indications for Friday and the weekend suggest that there will also be a good deal of dry weather apart from some light showers in the west on Friday.

The weekend will stay largely dry with spells of sunshine and will be warm with temperatures widely reaching the mid-20s.

Sounds better than heavy rain and thunderstorms, that's for sure.
