A STATUS YELLOW thunderstorm and rain warning has been issued for 15 counties across Ireland for tomorrow.  

Met Éireann has issued the warning for the whole of Leinster, as well as counties Cavan, Donegal and Monaghan. 

The warning will come into effect at 12pm tomorrow afternoon and will remain in place until around 8pm tomorrow night.

The meteorological service said that “scattered heavy showers with localised thundery downpours will give a risk of spot flooding” in the affected counties. 

The UK Met Office has also issued a Yellow thunderstorm warning for Antrim, Armagh, Down, Fermanagh, Tyrone and Derry, saying that heavy showers and thunderstorms “may cause some transport disruption and perhaps flooding”.

The warning will also kick in at 12pm tomorrow afternoon but will last slightly longer until 10pm tomorrow night. 

The weekend is set to remain unsettled across the country with a dull and misty start to tomorrow bringing scattered showers to most parts.
