A RAINFALL WARNING is in place for four counties across the country this morning.

A heavy spell of rain is expected in Wexford, Cork, Kerry and Waterford. Met Éireann said it is expected to lead to accumulations of 15 to 30mm in places, with highest rainfall in coastal and hilly areas.

Local spot flooding is also expected. Elsewhere across the country, rain is also forecast in many areas.

If you are driving this morning, the RSA is urging caution and issued advice for motorists driving in wet conditions.

It is advised that drivers check their tyres, allow extra distance between vehicles and other road users, take care behind goods vehicles, drive with dipped headlights and be aware of aquaplaning, especially on roads with high speed limits.

The weather warnings will remain in place until 12 noon. Met Éireann said it will be brighter this afternoon with sunny spells and scattered showers.
