Rainfall warning issued for all of Ireland

Ah, shoot. It's going to lash.

Met Éireann has issued a Status Yellow rainfall warning for all of Ireland.

The warning, which was issued on Sunday morning, will be in place from just after midnight (the early hours of Monday morning) until 7pm on Tuesday.

Persistent and occasionally heavy bands of rain will cross the country beginning on Sunday night through to Tuesday evening.

While some areas will remain below warning levels, there is a risk of localised spot flooding with a heightened risk of flash flooding in mountainous regions where accumulations are expected to be highest.

Notably, Met Éireann also said that this warning will be reviewed and "may be elevated" in further updates to reflect the evolving situation.

Also, the UK Met Office has issued a similar warning for Armagh, Down, Fermanagh, Tyrone and Derry, stating that "heavy rain may cause some travel disruption and flooding."

Just the news we wanted to hear going into a new week, get those brollies out from under the stairs...
