Yellow status rain warning for All-Ireland final weekend

Maroon umbrellas at the ready…

Ahead of Sunday’s Al-Ireland final, it would have been nice to bathe in sunshine and head to Croker with a tan (or at least a bit of sunburn).

We hope the Gods will be on our side on Sunday, and today was a fine day (by Irish standards).

But for tomorrow, it is set to rain heavily for some hours.

Both Galway and Waterford are included in MET Éireann’s status yellow rain warning which comes into effect tomorrow afternoon and lasts until 6am on Sunday morning.

The heavy rain will will spread eastwards in the evening and into the night.

There is some good news, however. Sunday is set to be dry but cloudy in the afternoon, with temperatures rising to 19°C when the clouds begin to clear in the late afternoon.

That will come as a relief to those who plan to watch the match on the big screen at Eyre Square.

It will be a similar picture in Dublin on Sunday, with cloud expected.
