Two Status Yellow weather warnings for wind and heavy rain have been issued by the Irish meteorological office.

The wind warning is in place for the whole of Ireland, it will be valid from 9am on Monday until 6am on Tuesday.

The weather is, thankfully, expected to be better later on in the week but for now, we'll just have to put up with this on and off always.

There is a further status yellow warning for Wind which extends across the state.

Gusts as high as 110kph and up to 50mm of rain is expected to hit part of the country in the coming hours, according to Met Eireann.

Rainfall accumulations of 25mm to 40mm are expected over this period, with the potential for higher amounts on hills and mountains and localised spot flooding.

Few of the showers may be heavy.

Met Éireann has announced that local flooding is to take place from tonight, Sunday, right through until Tuesday, April 17.

A Status Yellow Rainfall Warning is in place for Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Clare, Cork, Kerry, Tipperary and Waterford.

"There will be a bit of morning rain on Wednesday, but once that clears it will dry up and start to get much milder, apart from the west coast, which will stay wet", she said.

On a brighter note, the weather is forecast to pick up dramatically later in the week.

Temperatures are set to soar later in the week.

"The weekend will be largely dry and bright for many on Saturday with sunny spells in eastern areas".
