IT’S GOING TO be a wet and dull day in parts of the country with a rainfall warning in place for nine counties. 

A Status Yellow rainfall warning is in place for Connacht, Cavan, Donegal, Clare and Kerry until 2pm today. 

Met Éireann has warned that heavy rain may cause some river and localised flooding. 

This morning, heavy rain is forecast to continue across the north and west of the country before moving eastwards during the afternoon. 

Today will begin mild, with morning temperatures of 9 to 11 degrees, but the clearance of the rain will bring much colder conditions, with temperatures generally dropping to between 4 and 7 degrees in the afternoon. 

It’s set to be dry in most places tonight, apart from scattered showers in western coastal counties.
