LAST UPDATE | 10 Jul 2023

A STATUS YELLOW thunderstorm and rainfall warning is in place for 26 counties across Ireland. 

The alert came into effect in at 8am for all of Leinster, as well as Cavan, Leitrim, Monaghan, Tipperary, and Waterford.

Clare, Limerick and Donegal have since been added to the counties impacted by the warning. 

Met Éireann advises that heavy showers and thunderstorms are likely in these counties and warns of spot flooding and difficult driving conditions with poor visibility.

The alert is in place until 10pm tonight and a similar status yellow warning is also in place across the six counties in Northern Ireland. 

It’s due to be a wet day for most of the country, with highest temperatures of 17 to 21 degrees.

The wet weather will continue into the night with scattered showers and tomorrow morning will also begin with scatter showers.

Tomorrow afternoon, the showers will become confined mainly to Leinster, with some heavy downpours possible.

Met Éireann forecasts that it will remain quite showery through the rest of the working week, though there will be some dry and sunny intervals as well.
