Met Éireann issues rainfall warning for the entire country ... as the thunder rolls

Let’s be careful out there.

MET ÉIREANN HAS issued a rainfall warning for the entire country – as heavy, thundery showers sweep in.

Motorists, meanwhile, are being warned to beware of ‘greasy’ conditions on the nation’s roads – as the prolonged dry spell comes to an end.

After largely warm and dry weather over recent days, we’re in for quite the change today.

Here’s the outlook from Met Éireann:

Some sunny spells today but mostly cloudy with showery outbreaks of rain, heavy and thundery at times.

The ‘yellow alert’ rainfall warning kicked in at 9am, and stays in effect until midnight tonight.

The outlook

There’ll be heavy showers tomorrow too, according to the weather service – with more prolonged periods of rain in the west and northwest.

Temperatures won’t be too bad for the time of year, however – it’s set to hover around 20 degrees for most of the week.

The outlook for next weekend?

Warm sunny spells and scattered showers in a westerly airflow.

We’ll take it. Right?
