Polar snap to join awful rain storms in grim weather update as Met Eireann warn of floods

Temperatures will plummet to 3C as the awful rain storms stick around for a few more days.

That's the latest update from Met Éireann, who correctly predicted the atrocious conditions we've seen across Ireland on Sunday.

Cork and Kerry in particular were battered by rain and hail, with a number of roads being flooded and people forced to abandon their cars in the murky scenes.

Things could improve slightly on Monday but that won't last as long as people might hope.

A status yellow wind warning will remain in place until midday for nine counties, mainly based on the western side of the island.

The warning for Clare, Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo and Sligo reads: "Southeasterly winds, veering southwesterly will reach mean speeds of 50 - 65km/h with gusts of 90 - 110km/h, higher near coasts and exposed areas."

There is better news once that expires at midday.

The latest update from Met Eireann reads: "As showers die away northwards it will become mainly dry and sunny. Highest temperatures of 12 to 15C. A cold, dry and mostly clear night. Mainly light southeast winds. Lowest temperatures of 3 to 7C, milder in the south."

Tuesday is better, as Met Éireann explain: "A good deal of dry weather with sunny spells. Turning cloudier through the day with rain developing in the southwest. Highest temperatures of 13 to 16C in moderate to fresh easterly winds."

However, a wicked Wednesday is in store.

"A wet day for many areas with persistent and at times heavy falls of rain, especially in the south. Possibly staying dry in the north with some sunny spells. Another breezy day with fresh easterly winds. Highest temperatures of 11 to 15C" the forecast reads.
