It's going to be a breezy weekend, lads. Prepare to get your Rihanna out and werk some umbrellas.



Ladies, the latest news out of the Met Éireann headquarters is not good.

According to the country's forecasters, seven counties around Ireland will be subject to a particularly wet weekend ahead.

Issuing two yellow weather warnings to the public, Met Éireann wrote: "RAINFALL WARNING ISSUED. Status Yellow warning issued for Offaly, Limerick & Tipperary for 30 to 40mm from Fri 6pm to Sat 6pm."

"Also Status Yellow warning issued for Galway, Mayo, Clare & Kerry for 40 to 50mm from Fri 6pm to Sat 6pm," they added.

Don't say they didn't warn you…



Between the recent departure of storm Ophelia and the imminent arrival of Storm Brian, the nation is certainly due a reprieve.

But, according to the good folk at Met Éireann, it's not meant to be.

Forecasters have confirmed that a number of counties around the country are set to experience heavy, thundery rain both today and tomorrow.

"Rain, in the south this morning, will become widespread this afternoon with hill and coastal fog also," reads an update on their website.

"Widespread mist, fog and drizzle tonight will give way to a spell of heavy and possibly thundery rain. The rain is expected to arrive on the west coast before midnight and slowly cross the country, arriving in the east on Thursday morning."

The worst effected areas include Munster, Dublin, Carlow, Kilkenny, Louth, Wexford, Wicklow and Meath, with rain expected to reach between 30 and 50mm.
