Met Éireann issues update on yellow weather warning ahead of another week of rain

Things aren't looking up on the weather front this week it seems.

Met Éireann has issued an update on the yellow weather warning in place until Monday ahead of another week of rain and unsettled weather.


The warning which will see showers, longer spells of rain and the risk of localised flooding and hazardous driving conditions, was set to be in place across Sligo, Donegal and North Leitrim from Sunday until midnight on Monday. However, the warning will now only be in place in Donegal and North Leitrim.

The warning is one of many in recent days and the bad news is the weather doesn't look set to pick up any time soon with changeable and unsettled weather forecasted through the rest of the week.

Meanwhile, temperatures will remain similar with highs in the high teens touching 20 locally.

Monday is set to be mostly cloudy for a time with showers becoming fairly widespread and many becoming heavy.


There will also be some thundery downpours too, with some localised flooding and highest temperatures of 17 to 20 degrees in light to moderate west to northwest breezes.

Tuesday will be a largely dry day with a good deal of cloud, however, there will be some hazy sunny spells and also the chance of isolated patchy light rain or drizzle at times. Highest temperatures will be between 17 to 20 degrees, possibly reaching 21 degrees in the east.

The persistent and locally heavy band of rain will gradually track eastwards again on Wednesday, while sunny spells and isolated light showers will follow from the west for the afternoon.

Highest temperatures will hit 17 to 20 degrees.


There will be more uncertainty on the cards for Thursday with a low-pressure system set to track to the northwest of Ireland.

Current indications suggest there will be some patchy rain and drizzle in the morning, although it will become drier with good sunny spells for the afternoon.

Highest temperatures will hit between 17 to 20 degrees.

Current indications suggest that it will continue unsettled through Friday and the weekend with showers and longer spells of rain. Highest temperatures are likely to range between 16 to 21 degrees generally.
