HEAVY AND PERSISTENT rain is en route as a weather advisory for 10 counties has been issued. 

Met Éireann has issued the advisory for Clare, Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Donegal and all of Connacht. The advisory will remain in place until 6am on Saturday. 

It warns that a band of rain is approaching from the Atlantic and is forecast to stall over the western half of the country on Thursday and Friday, leading to persistent and heavy rainfalls in places. 

This may result in some river flooding as well as localised surface flooding. 

Met Éireann says the advisory will be updated tomorrow morning and warnings may be issued. 

Looking at the general forecast, today will see a mix of sunshine and showers with highest temperatures ranging between 12 and 15 degrees, while tonight will be mostly dry with some mist and fog in parts. 

Tomorrow will be cloudy and overcast with persistent rain and drizzle across the west and northwest. 

Longer drier spells will develop later tomorrow with some brighter spells breaking through. It will be a very humid and mild day with highest temperatures of 15 to 18 degrees.
