The weather is finally meant to get better after the heavens opened this weekend

Thank God.

We're in for another week of rain this week but it's not all grim news, a little sunshine is on the way.

Over the last few weeks, it feels like we've gone through all four seasons and this week is no different, with downpours here to stay for a few more days.

Met Eireann has issued a status yellow alert for Donegal, north Leitrim and Sligo from midnight on Sunday until midnight on Monday, with risks of localised flooding.

Forecasters are warning that we need to brace for more of this weather to come over the next few days, it's not all doom and gloom.

Hope is still here as conditions are set to improve by the middle of the week with an "easterly or north-easterly influence on our weather."

They said: "Tuesday will be largely dry day for many, with just a few light showers about, mainly in the west. It will be a rather cloudy day overall, with the best of the sunny breaks occurring in the morning or early afternoon.

"Brighter, clearer and sunnier conditions with just isolated showers will develop in Atlantic counties by late morning [Wednesday], however, before gradually extending elsewhere through the rest of the day. Breezy at first with moderate to fresh and gusty south-easterly winds, but winds will veer to a lighter southwest as the rain clears through.

"Current indications suggest Thursday will be a rather breezy or blustery day with sunny spells and showers."

While better weather is only around the corner, it's set to be a rainy one this morning so don't forget that umbrella on the way out the door.

Met Eireann added about today's weather: "The showers will be heavy at times with some thundery downpours, bringing a risk localised flooding. Drier conditions will extend into western areas later this afternoon, but showers will continue across parts of the midlands and east into this evening."
