Fire service hopes rain dampens bonfires as Status Yellow remains in place for a wet Halloween

Heavy rains will continue throughout the day.

LAST UPDATE | Oct 31st 2022, 6:40 PM

A STATUS YELLOW rain warning remains in place for the rest of the evening, with heavy rainfall already being recorded in some parts of the country. 

Dublin Fire Brigade was among those to note that the wet weather may dampen bonfires around the country with Met Éireann stating that rain will clear into the Irish Sea in the early hours of the morning. 

A Status Orange rain warning was in effect in four southern counties earlier this afternoon and Cork City Council has said that flooding in Silversprings slip road junction earlier was now clear. 

For the rest of the country and Northern Ireland, a Status Yellow rainfall warning is in effect for the remainder of this evening. 

Tomorrow is also likely to see persistent heavy rain with a Status Yellow warning for the country to kick back in on Wednesday. 

Storm force winds will mean a Status Orange warning off the west coast before some sunnier weather on Thursday.
