A STATUS YELLOW weather warning has been issued for the whole country. 

The warning kicked in at midday and is due to remain valid until 10pm tonight. 

Met Éireann has said there is a risk of heavy thundery downpours, especially over Munster and Leinster which may lead to spot flooding. 

The warning comes after two Status Yellow rainfall warnings were issued for 13 counties yesterday as thundery downpours hit the east and south of the country. 

Looking at the general forecast, heavy thundery downpours are expected this afternoon, especially over Munster Leinster and east Ulster. Met Éireann has warned this may lead to spot flooding. 

Today’s scattered heavy showers will gradually die out later this evening and tonight is due to become mainly dry with clear spells. 

Tomorrow will be slightly warmer than today with temperatures rising a degree or so to reach 19 to 23 degrees. 

Scattered showers with the odd heavy spell is forecast. The showers are expected to die out tomorrow night, making way for clear spells. 

Wednesday is forecast to be a warm day with sunshine and just the odd rain shower. 

Temperatures will range between 19 to 24 degrees, however, it will be a bit cooler in the north and northwest. 

Thursday is again due to be a warm and sunny day for most of the country with highs of 20 to 27 degrees. It will stay dry generally but some rain may clip the southwest coast, according to Met Éireann. 

And finally, looking forward to Friday, there will be little change in the weather from the previous few days, with highs of 20 to 26 degrees.
