A status yellow weather warning has been issued for six counties

Get the umbrellas out.

Met Éireann have issued a status yellow rainfall warning for six counties in Ireland.

The counties affected are Carlow, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Offfaly and Meath, and the warning is valid from 4pm on Sunday until 9pm on the same night.

Heavy rain is expected to continue well into the evening, with rainfall totals of 20 to 30mm in some places.

There will also be local spot flooding in certain areas, so if you're heading out this Sunday evening, make sure you've got your rain coat on.

It doesn't look like it's going to improve anytime soon either, as it's expected to be wet and windy all around the country on Monday.

Although, it might start to pick up later in the week, as it's supposed to be dry and bright in most areas on Tuesday.

This warning comes just a day after Met Éireann issued a status yellow thunder warning for 14 counties.
