Irish public issued with flooding warning ahead of this weekend


If you're full of that classic Friday feeling, we hate to rain on your parade, but the weather for the coming weekend is set to be far from pleasant.

According to the good folk at Met Éireann, we are to expect periods of heavy rain, which will bring with them the risk of local flooding in some areas of the country.

"Warm, humid conditions expected to develop on Sunday and lasting into the early days of next week will bring spells of heavy rain and the risk of local flooding," reads the forecast on the website.

"Details uncertain at this stage but current indications suggest that Northwestern coastal areas will be worst affected."

The national forecasters issued a Status Yellow weather warning as of 1pm this afternoon, and it will remain in place until noon on Tuesday.

Well, that's just top-notch.
