A Status Yellow weather warning has been issued for five counties in Ireland

It's going to be a wet one out there folks.

Met Éireann has issued a Status Yellow rainfall warning for a total of five counties in Ireland.

The warning was issued for Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Leitrim and Roscommon on Monday morning.

The warning will be in place from noon on Monday until 6pm on Tuesday, the next day.

Heavy or prolonged showers are to be expected, with the risk of thundery downpours potentially leading to rainfall accumulations of 25 to 40 millimeters over the period.

Lowest temperatures of 11 to 14 degrees in moderate southerly breezes are to be expected.

Tuesday will be a showery day as well, with showers becoming heavy and prolonged to give longer spells of rain during the afternoon.

There is the ongoing risk of thundery downpours over Ulster as well as the counties of Connacht.

Long story short, if you're heading out over the next day or so, don't forget the umbrella.
