Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Roscommon, Sligo, Longford, Louth, Westmeath, Meath, Cavan and Monaghan are the counties affected by the warning.

Met Éireann warned that heavy rainfall will lead to accumulations of 30 to 50mm, with higher accumulations in mountainous areas.

This will bring a risk of some river and localised flooding in the affected areas.

The warning will be in place from 9pm on Monday night until the same time on Tuesday.

So now you have yet another reason to stay indoors for the next while.

As the week goes on, it is expected to turn colder from Wednesday with rain turning to sleet in the southeast on Wednesday evening.

Sunny spells and showers of rain, hail and sleet are expected for the remainder of the week and next weekend, with temperatures a few degrees below normal and a widespread frost each night.

Yep. Unsurprisingly, it's due to be really cold for the entire week, obviously, so make sure you've got plenty of layers on you.
