Wet and humid weather to start the week as Ireland deals with the aftermath of Hurricane Gert

A Status Yellow rainfall warning is in place until 4pm.

IT WILL BE a mild, wet and misty start to the week as Ireland deals with the tail end of Hurricane Gert – which hit the US on the other side of the Atlantic.

Met Éireann has issued a status yellow rainfall warning which came into effect yesterday afternoon for counties across the country and will remain in place until 4pm this evening.

The warning applies to all of Connacht and counties Cavan, Monaghan, Donegal, Dublin, Kildare, Laois, Longford, Louth, Wicklow, Offaly, Westmeath, Meath, Clare and north Tipperary.

Rainfall accumulations were expected to hit 30 to 50mm, with highest totals in the mountains.

It will be mostly damp and misty across the country this morning, with scattered outbreaks of rain with a risk of local flooding.

As the day progresses, it will become drier a brighter across southern counties and gradually extend northwards – with some sunny spells developing this afternoon and evening.
