Status yellow weather warning has been issued for five counties in Ireland

It's going to get wet out there folks.

Although the weather has felt like it has been picking up over the past while, it looks like it's not all sunshine and picnics just yet...

So if your weekend plans consist of anything that involves the outdoors, take note.

A status yellow rainfall weather warning has been issued for Galway, Mayo, Clare, Cork and Kerry, as between 25mm and 45mm are expected in those counties.

The potential for higher rainfall amounts is also expected in mountainous areas.

The weather warning was issued on Friday night, but will not come into place until 8pm on Saturday 13 April. It is expected to end 24 hours later.

Met Éireann announced the news on their official Twitter page on Friday evening.

A further wind warning was issued soon afterwards, for Donegal, Galway, Mayo and Kerry. 

This warning will come into place at 7am on Saturday morning, and will end at 3am on Sunday morning.
