Three Status Yellow warnings issued as rain set to hammer the country
Why does it always rain on me?
Is it because I lied when I was 17?
Who can tell.
One thing we can confirm, though, is that Met Éireann has issued three separate Status Yellow warnings as some notably bothersome rain appears on the horizon.
The first warning is for Kerry, with heavy spells of rain set to lead to localised flooding.
The warning is valid from 1am on Wednesday (27 October) until 1am on Thursday.
The second warning concerns Cork, with the same conditions expected.
That warning has a slight time difference, however, and is valid from 3am on Wednesday until 3am on Thursday.
The third warning affects Carlow, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Wexford, Wicklow, Tipperary and Waterford.
As with the first two, heavy spells of persistent rain are anticipated alongside the likelihood of localised flooding.
This warning is valid from 5am on Wednesday until 5am on Thursday.
⚠️☔️ A yellow #rain warning has been issued for later tonight and tomorrow in some southern and eastern areas, as heavy and persistent rain is expected to bring some impacts.

The warnings follow a generally unsettled forecast for the final week of October, with temperatures potentially reaching as high as 18 degrees in places but the threat of heavy rain also along for company.
Winter is coming, and all that.
