Not the start of the week we were looking for.

A Status Yellow weather warning has been issued for nine counties across Ireland.

The counties in question are Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Roscommon, Sligo, Cavan, Kerry, Clare and Donegal.

The warning, which is a Status Yellow rainfall warning, is valid from 2pm on Monday until 2pm on Tuesday afternoon.

Met Éireann has said that heavy rain later today and tonight and tomorrow may cause some river and localised flooding.

And sadly, it doesn't look like it's going to get much better as the week goes on.

Wednesday is due to be particularly cold, with frost and icy stretches expected in the morning, though they are due to clear as the day goes on.

And the cold weather will continue for the remainder of the week, though the rain is expected to slow down as the days go on.

Like we said, we know this isn't the news we were hoping to start the week with, but at least you now know in advance to get the blankets and hot water bottles out.
