MET ÉIREANN HAS this morning issued a nationwide Status Yellow rain warning. 

The forecasters said that thunderstorms and heavy showers will develop over the western half of the country and will move eastwards as the day progresses.

They also warned that localised downpours will lead to spot flooding and hazardous driving conditions.

The warning is valid from midday today until 5am tomorrow morning.

The forecaster said a cold front crossing the country this afternoon will bring widespread heavy and possibly thundery showers. 

“Areas most at risk are Leinster and Munster later this afternoon and evening. Heavy showers with the risk of thunderstorms will continue through tomorrow and Wednesday,” the advisory says. 

Showery outbreaks of rain will develop across the western half of the country during this morning, extending eastwards in the afternoon and reaching eastern and northeastern counties in the evening. 

It will be less warm today than in recent days with highs of 18 to 23 degrees generally in moderate northwest breezes.
