Rain, rain, and more rain forecast by Met Eireann for a grim start to the week

Great yeah, can't wait.

It's been raining for a while now - and it's only set to be raining some more as Met Eireann have predicted the week to begin in the worst way possible.

Yep, with a load of rain.

While Friday evening saw washouts across the country, it was almost to be expected that the worst was over - but it isn't, because it's all starting again tonight.

Showers beginning in west Munster will slowly start to spread northeastwards reaching parts of Connacht and Leinster this evening and continuing through the night.

Some southern counties will see bursts of rainfall that could lead to flooding in some areas as we come into Monday morning.

There will be scattered outbreaks of rain heading northwards with showers following into the south and west of the country tomorrow.

It will be overall dry enough in many parts, but most of the country will remain overcast with a few patches of drizzle here and there.

The drizzle will then pick up into scattered showers across southern counties into Monday night, leaving it fairly wet and extending across the country by the time we reach Tuesday morning.

This will lead to another risk of flooding in southern counties, with scattered showers affecting the east later that night.

It's expected to clear up by Wednesday, but honestly who knows at this point?

Holiday, anyone?
