*That one Travis song plays*

Well folks, we are officially well and truly in the depths of autumn.

Not so much winter yet, there's still a slight warmth in the air which just about everybody is thankful for - but it is certainly fall. Wet, miserable, dull fall. Lovely.

And what better way to confirm that summer is well and truly long behind us than with another weather warning?

Met Éireann issued the status yellow weather warning for 10 counties spanning today and tomorrow. The warning is pertaining to the amount of rain that's expected to fall in these areas over the next day or so. The forecaster has also warned of flooding.

The warning has been issued for Tipperary, Waterford, Carlow, Kilkenny, Laois, Wexford, Wicklow and Kildare.

It's valid from 10am on Wednesday morning to 5am on Thursday morning. Met Éireann has also warned of localised flooding and persistent rain in these areas.

Separate weather warnings have also been issued for Cork and Kerry, the first valid until 3am on Thursday and the second until 1am on Thursday morning.

Met Éireann said that tonight "further outbreaks of showery rain will feed up from the south, heavy and persistent across the south and east bringing a continued risk of localised flooding.

"Drier and clearer intervals will occur across the west and northwest. Temperatures generally not falling below 10 to 13 degrees, slightly cooler in the west and northwest. Light to moderate southerly winds generally, but continuing fresh to strong across southern and eastern counties."

The rain will mostly clear by Thursday morning but there will be outbreaks of showers coming from the southwest into the afternoon.

Overall, the forecaster said it's going to be pretty "unsettled" for the rest of the week.

Get ready for this for the next six months or so then.
