MET ÉIREANN HAS lifted two weather warnings put in place yesterday as heavy rain battered the east coast.

Initial reports suggest that last night’s rain was not as severe as Saturday’s, which caused flooding in Dublin.

Motorists are advised to take extreme care on the roads as conditions are still wet.

AA Roadwatch reports that M1 is closed due to flooding southbound between J4 and J2.

There is a single vehicle collision on the N17 in Mayo with traffic down to one lane, while debris is partially blocking the N2 Dublin to Monaghan Road in Meath.

However, the end is in sight – sunny spells experienced by some luckier parts of the country yesterday will extend from Munster to the rest of the country this afternoon.

The rain is due to remain mainly light until it clears later, and after that there’s a chance that cloudy conditions will persist.

A small craft warning currently remains in place from Erris Head to Rossan Point, extending to Fair Head this afternoon, and also from Carlingford Lough to Howth Head to Wicklow Head.
