Met Éireann say heavy rain will wash over the country as the weather warning stays in place
A status yellow weather warning is in place until tomorrow.
For the most part of today, Met Éireann predicts that the country will be mainly dry with sunny spells and clear skies, however, when we reach the later part of the day it will take a turn with heavy rain washing over Ireland.
As we all know, the Irish weather can be unpredictable so even though it says it's going to be dry for the most part of the day, we'd still bring an umbrella with you just in case.
The weather forecaster said: "Any early mist or fog patches will clear and much of today will be mainly dry with bright or sunny spells.
