Met Éireann issue four-day weather advisory and naturally enough, it starts on Monday

As if Mondays weren't bad enough.

According to Met Éireann, we're in for a spell of bad weather which kicks in from the start of next week, Monday January 13 to be exact.

A national weather advisory was issued this evening and truth be told, we're not too keen on the sound of it.

According to the national forecaster:

"We are entering a period of very unsettled weather. Further warnings for strong winds and rainfall are likely to be issued in the coming days. A combination of spring tides and gales may lead to coastal flooding at times".

It's valid from 00:01 on Monday to 23:59 on Thursday and a four day weather warning, right in the middle of the week, is far from ideal.

So if you have a lengthy commute, preparation is key and all that jazz.

The latest update follows two weather warnings issued earlier today.

There's both a wind and rain warning in place from 3pm today and you can see the exact details for both below.

"Status Yellow - Wind warning for Donegal, Galway, Mayo and Kerry."

"South to Southwest winds 50 to 65 km/hr gusts 90 to 110 km/hr, strongest on exposed coasts and hills.

"Valid: 15:00 Friday 10/01/2020 to 11:00 Saturday 11/01/2020."

The rainfall warning also applies to Donegal, Galway and Mayo but Sligo is included instead of Kerry here.

"Status Yellow - Rainfall warning for Donegal, Galway, Mayo and Sligo."

"Heavy rain with accumulations of 40-50mm over the period with localised flooding. At the coast, high seas and strong to gale force southerly winds will combine to give a risk of coastal flooding."

"Valid: 15:00 Friday 10/01/2020 to 15:00 Saturday 11/01/2020."
