This is the second warning that Cork and Waterford has received this week alone, with a 24 hour flood warning having been issued on Tuesday (6 September).
Thunderstorm warnings had also been issued to 12 counties across the country on Thursday (8 September).
The poor weather, thankfully, is set to clear on Monday, with high pressure bringing dry and fine weather to the country.
Top temperatures will range from between 15 or 16 degrees Celsius in the north to 20 or 21 degrees in the south of the country.
Monday night is expected to be mostly dry with long clear spells and a chance of a few showers in the northwest.
Tuesday is set to be mainly dry, with highest temperatures ranging from 16 to 20 degrees, with southern counties feeling the heat the most.
It will remain mainly dry overnight with long clear spells.
Wednesday is expected to be similarly dry and warm, with sunshine predicted.
The highest temperatures are anticipated to be around 16 to 20 degrees.
The next few nights are anticipated to be quite cool, however, with temperatures expected to be around 6 to 9 degrees.
The rest of the week is expected to be similarly warm and dry.
But until then, batten down the hatches, and break out the rain jackets.
