Met Éireann issues rain and flood warning for 10 counties

Kat O'Connor

Rain, rain, and more rain forecast for the midterm.

Get the umbrellas and wellies out of storage because Met Éireann has issued a rainfall warning.

Met Éireann has issued a Status Yellow rainfall warning for 10 counties.

It has warned the public to prepare for persistent rainfall and potential flooding from Tuesday, October 27th.

The warning will be in place in Co. Kerry from 1 am tonight and 3 am in Co. Cork.

A warning has been put in place in Waterford, Laois, Carlow, Kildare, Kilkenny, Wexford, Wicklow, and Tipperary from 5 am.

Met Éireann warned the public of “persistent and locally heavy rain, leading to localised flooding”.

Mild temperatures between 11 to 14 degrees Celsius have been forecasted for the week ahead.

Fresh to strong and gusty southwest winds will gradually moderate, except in the south and southeast where winds will remain brisk, forecasters added.

Munster and Leinster are set to experience the bulk of bad weather on Wednesday. There will be an ongoing risk of flooding in these areas.

Any dreams of spending the midterm break in playgrounds, parks, and pumpkin patches have been shattered.

It looks like we’ll be spending most of the October midterm break inside.

I guess it’s time to watch Bluey for the hundredth time.
