The forecaster is warning of “heavy thundery rain this evening and overnight with accumulations of 20 to 30mm”. Torrential downpours in some places are also expected to lead to spot flooding.

Meanwhile, a yellow thunderstorm warning was also issued by the UK Met Office for Antrim, Armagh, Down, Fermanagh, Tyrone and Derry.

That warning is valid from 1am until 11am on Thursday.

Elsewhere, it will be largely dry in the north and northwest with mist and fog patches tonight.
