It’s ‘extra pair of socks in your bag’ kind of weather out there.

Plenty of rain is expected in Leinster throughout Monday, with a Status Yellow rainfall warning issued for five counties.

Dublin, Kildare, Louth, Wicklow and Meath have received the warning as Met Eireann predict spells of heavy rain and the risk of spot flooding.

The warning came into effect at 8am on Monday morning and is valid until 9pm on Monday evening.

As much as 3.2mm of rain is expected in the capital today, with the worst of it forecast for the early afternoon.

A Met Eireann spokesperson said: “Mostly cloudy today with outbreaks of showery rain. The rain will be heavy and persistent at times, with a risk of spot flooding. Highs of 9 to 11 Celsius. Light westerly breezes will veer north to northeast this morning and will gradually freshen this afternoon.

“Staying mostly cloudy tonight with further outbreaks of showery rain. Lows of 4 to 7 degrees in moderate to fresh and gusty northerly winds, strong near the coast.

“Any lingering rain will soon clear tomorrow morning, to leave a dry but mostly cloudy day. Top temperatures of 10 or 11 degrees. Gusty northerly winds will gradually moderate as the day goes on.”
