A STATUS YELLOW rainfall warning has been issued for Munster and Leinster.

The larger totals are likely to be in southern and eastern counties. Highest temperatures will range from 8 to 11 degrees today.

Rain is expected to spread northwards to most areas tonight and will be heaviest in southern and eastern coastal counties, leading to spot flooding.
