A rain weather warning has been issued for 3 counties

Hello, autumn.

A status yellow rainfall weather warning has been issued for three counties last night, so if you were planning on having a cosy autumnal lunchtime walk, you may want to think again.

Met Éireann has issued the yellow weather warning for Donegal, Mayo, and Galway, stating that there will be "spells of heavy rain at times with accumulations of 30 mm possible."

The weather warning is valid from yesterday (Wednesday) at 9pm to tonight (Thursday) at 9pm.

Elsewhere in the country things aren't looking so hot either as rain is expected in most areas later this evening.

Met Éireann says: Today will be mostly cloudy with scattered outbreaks of rain, most especially in west Munster, Connacht and Ulster. Some bright intervals in east Munster and south Leinster.

"This evening, rain will spread eastwards with some heavy falls in Connacht and west Ulster. Highest temperatures 13 to 16 degrees with moderate to fresh southwesterly winds, strong at times in coastal areas."

Rain is set to clear eastwards later on this evening, but it will still be fairly windy out there, especially later on in the night "as fresh southwest winds become westerly and increase fresh to strong and gusty."

Lowest temperatures will range between 6 and 9 degrees.

Winter is, indeed, coming.
