LOCK THE DOORS. Shut the windows. Hide under your bed.

Thunderstorms, heavy rain, and flash flooding has been forecast right across Ireland.

Met Éireann has issued an orange weather warning, as heavy thunderstorms are expected to rattle Munster, Leinster, Connacht, Donegal, Monaghan and Cavan.

Connacht and west Ulster are most at risk of flashing floods this evening.

However, if you’re in one of the other areas and are feeling a little left out, fear not – intense downpours are likely to spread to all areas later tonight and tomorrow.

We’re also in for the long haul as the warning, issued at 4pm today, is valid all the way through until 9pm tomorrow night.

We’ll see you on the other side. Godspeed.
