Status Yellow rain warning remains in effect nationwide as Met Éireann warns of flooding

A yellow wind warning will be in place for Cork and Kerry from 8pm this

LAST UPDATE | 21 Nov 2022

A STATUS YELLOW rain warning is currently in place across the country, as Met Éireann warn of potential flooding.

An orange rain warning in Waterford, Wexford and Wicklow lapsed at 12 noon, while a status yellow wind warning will come into effect in Cork and Kerry at 8pm this evening.

According to the forecaster, there will be “particularly strong west to northwest winds” in the two counties overnight, with potential for gusts in excess of 100km/h.

The wind warning is set to end at 4am tomorrow.

Meanwhile, the status yellow rain warning will remain in place until 8pm tonight and heavy rain may lead to flooding in some places.

The UK Met Office has also issued a rainfall warning for Northern Ireland.

Met Éireann has predicted that winds will slowly ease and veer west through the day as rain dies down before the wind increases over Munster later.

Some scattered outbreaks of rain will occur tonight, along with mist and fog.

Where clear skies persist, frost will develop too, the forecaster said.

Tomorrow will see scattered outbreaks of rain, mainly across the east and southwest.

Longer drier spells are predicted too with some sunshine getting through.
