AFTER FLOODING IN parts of Galway city last night, it looks like the weather is starting to calm.

The yellow weather warning has now passed and AA Roadwatch is reporting that while road conditions are wet this morning, traffic is moving well.

Parts of the city were hit with torrential rain and high winds yesterday evening:

Met Éireann is forecasting prolonged spells of showery rain this morning:

“Those spells of showery rain will gradually clear away northwards in the afternoon with good dry and brighter intervals in most parts during the afternoon and just a few scattered showers.”

It adds that, “Southwesterly winds will be fresh to strong and gusty generally and near gale force and gusty at first in exposed coastal areas but winds will ease a little later in the afternoon.”
