Yellow rainfall weather warning issued for seven counties

You truly do hate to see it.

A status yellow rainfall weather warning has been issued for seven counties.

Wexford, Wicklow, Galway, Mayo, Cork, Kerry and Waterford will be worst hit by tonight's rain, which is expected to reach totals of between 25mm to 40mm in some parts of the country.

The status yellow warning will be valid in these counties from 9pm tonight (September 29) to midday tomorrow (September 30).

Met Éireann has also warned of localised flooding in these spots, but added that the rain should be cleared by tomorrow morning.

"This evening, overnight and Wednesday morning spells of heavy rain moving eastwards over Ireland will give 25 to 40 mm of rain and a risk of localised flooding," they said.

"Highest amounts in the southwest of the country and in mountainous areas."

Elsewhere, the rain will continue to spread eastwards to all areas of the country tonight.

The rain is expected to be heavy at times with a risk of spot flooding, with southerly winds both fresh and gusty in coastal areas.

Temperatures will be between 9 and 12 degrees.

Autumn, she's here lads. Time to start wrapping up.
