Heavy showers are expected in the eight counties under a status yellow rainfall warning.

A 24-hour yellow warning for counties Galway, Mayo, Clare, Sligo, Cork, Kerry, Tipperary and Waterford saw rainfall of 25mm to 50mm in coastal areas.

They state that there will be "rainfall accumulations of 25 to 40mm expected over the period, with the potential for higher amounts on hills and mountains".

A Status Yellow wind warning has been issued for the entire country for Monday night, with south to southeast winds reaching mean speeds of between 50 and 65km/h with gusts of between 80 and 110km/h.

Met Éireann says the weather will worsen dramatically after a dry and bright start in most places at first on Monday.

Tomorrow will see further rain along Atlantic-coastal counties, but for the rest of us the weather will vastly improve thanks to a 2,414km "African air plume".
