SUMMER’S BEEN PUT on hold in the country’s most southerly counties — for the moment at least.

Met Éireann have issued a ‘yellow alert’ rainfall warning for Cork, Kerry and Waterford.

Spells of heavy rain will affect the counties today, bringing between 25 and 35mm.

According to the outlook:

Windy over Munster and Connacht today, with rain becoming widespread. Some of it heavy, especially in southern coastal counties, where some spot flooding is likely.

The forecast for the weekend?

Not too bad. Some hazy sunshine tomorrow, but the occasional ‘thundery downpour’ too.

It’s set to be humid for the next few days, with a good few showers around.

On the bright side, temperatures could reach up to 20 degrees by Sunday.
