Met Éireann have issued a weather warning for one county

Met Éireann have issued a weather warning for one county as the temperatures across the country continue to climb.

The status yellow rainfall warning covers Waterford, and comes into effect at 5am on Sunday, June 23 and ends at 9pm that day.

The forecaster said:

"Persistent, and at times, heavy rain during Sunday will lead to accumulations between 25 to 40mm.

"There is potential for this warning to be extended to include other counties."

Looking towards the forecast for the rest of the country tomorrow, Met Éireann said it would be a "damp start" to the day with heavy rain affecting mainly southern counties.

The spokesperson added:

"Parts of Ulster will start out dry and bright, though. Heavy rain in the south will push slowly northwards over the country during the afternoon and evening, giving rise to spot flooding in places, with a risk of thundery downpours, especially towards evening.

"Feeling humid, with highs of 15C to 19C, all in moderate southeasterly breezes."

They added that it will start to become "very warm and increasingly humid" next week, with temperatures hitting in the 20s.

The Met Éireann spokesperson continued:

"There will be some good spells of sunshine at times, but also some heavy and thundery rain or showers, with sea mist and fog in places too.

"Conditions are conducive to the spread of potato blight."
