Bring that brolly, there's more rain on the way

There is an orange and yellow warning for some counties today and tomorrow.

RAIN Source: Met Eireann

ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER weather warning.

This one is for those in County Kerry, with an orange weather warning for heavy rain today through into Monday, with accumulations of 50-70mm possible. 

Meanwhile there is a yellow warning for further heavy rain for today and tomorrow in Galway, Mayo, Clare, Cork and Limerick, with accumulations of 30-50mm possible.

Met Eireann says there’s a risk of localised flooding due to some heavy outbursts of rain especially in the west and southwest.

The good news is that it should gradually clear in many parts of the midlands, south and east.

Tonight, there will be further outbreaks of rain in the west and southwest, which could be heavy at times.

There is also a risk of flooding when rain will return to many parts of the south. There should be dry intervals elsewhere.
