Status Yellow weather warning issued for five counties

To quote the terribly evil Scar from The Lion King - "be prepared".

A Status Yellow weather warning has been issued for five counties across Ireland - Galway, Mayo, Cork, Kerry and Waterford.

The warning will come into place at 6pm on Tuesday, and it will remain valid until 6pm the following day.

Met Éireann warned that through Tuesday night and Wednesday, there could be between 30 to 50 mm of rain in certain locations, with higher amounts in mountainous areas.

The forecaster also warned that there will be flooding in places, as well as reduced visibility and hazardous driving conditions.

Rain will spread countrywide tonight, with some heavy falls, bringing a risk of localised spot flooding even in the counties not affected by the warning. Lowest temperatures of 9 to 11 degrees with strong southerly winds are also developing.

So be careful.

However, things will start to improve on Thursday, with Met Éireann expecting a mostly dry day with sunny spells at first.

But in classic 2020 fashion, things will start to suck again just in time for the weekend, with rain expected on both Saturday and Sunday.

Ah well.
