Dublin: 10°C Tuesday 26 October 2021

Flood gates and defences are in place in Dublin this evening

Rain, rain, go away.

IF YOU PLAN on getting out to enjoy the last day of your bank holiday weekend, don’t expect dry weather.

There’ll be rain in most parts of the country today, according to Met Éireann, which has issued a yellow weather warning for Dublin, Louth, Wexford, Wicklow, Meath, Cork, Kerry, Tipperary and Waterford.

It’ll be wet and windy in the south and southwest this morning, with persistent and heavy rain in southern Munster and Leinster.

After a mainly dry but windy start in more northern areas, outbreaks of rain will eventually extend to all parts of the country.

Rain will slowly move in from the west later this afternoon, bringing further persistent and widespread rain in the evening.

Flood gates will be closed from 4pm at Clontarf, Sandymount Strand, along the river Dodder and at Merrion Gates in Sandymount.

Highest temperatures will range from 12 to 15 degrees, while strong southeasterly winds with gale gusts along southern and eastern coasts will gradually weaken in the late evening.
