Met Éireann say the weather will get worse today with persistent heavy rain

It's not looking good.

If you're already out in the big, bad world, making your way to work (or college, school, whatever) then you'll know it's absolutely miserable out.

The rain seemed to stay away for the most part of last night, however this morning is a different story.

And according to Met Éireann, it's not going to stop.

The weather forecaster said: "Cloudy today with persistent or heavy rain in many areas and a risk of flooding. The heaviest falls will be in west Munster, and over the northern half of the country. Some drier intervals in the east for a time this afternoon.

"Highest temperatures of 10 to 14 degrees with mostly light to moderate southeast breezes, fresher in the south."

Tonight, the rain will continue with temperatures dropping to around 3 degrees.

"Rain continuing in many areas this evening and tonight. Drier weather developing in the west and southwest, this evening will gradually extend eastwards. However, rain will continue overnight in Leinster and Ulster, but becoming more patchy. Mist and fog will develop in many areas. Lowest temperatures of 3 to 7 degrees."

The rest of the week is looking quite unsettled, so unfortunately we won't be putting away our umbrellas anytime soon.
