Met Éireann predict heavy rain and high temperatures for the entire day

It's not looking too good.

If you haven't left the house for work yet, then make sure to bring an umbrella or wear a raincoat because it's going to lash today.

Met Éireann has predicted rain across the whole day, with temperatures rising to 20 degrees.

The weather forecaster said: "Rain through much of the west and north of the country today, persistent and heavy at times. It will be drier in the east and south with just a few outbreaks of rain. Highest temperatures of 16 to 20 degrees, warmest in the southeast in gusty south or southwest winds."

It's going to get worse before it gets better with heavy and persistent showers covering the whole country tonight.

"Tonight there will be heavy rain for a time in all areas. Towards morning it will become drier again from the west. Lowest temperatures of 10 to 12 degrees. Moderate to fresh southerly winds will turn westerly later."

Saturday isn't looking too bad however, as the weather forecaster says it will become drier throughout the day.

"[It] will be a brighter day with sunshine and showers. Highest temperatures of 16 to 18 degrees in moderate, occasionally fresh westerly breezes."
