In its forecast for the coming days, Met Éireann said: “Tonight will be mostly cloudy with further blustery outbreaks of rain. The rain will be persistent and heavy across the west and northwest, with the ongoing risk of flooding here, and all the while remaining driest across southern counties. 

“Mostly cloudy and breezy on Monday with some further heavy falls of rain across the west and northwest, where they may yet be some flooding. However, many areas other areas will see just well scattered showers and brighter spells – the best of these across the northeast and southwest.”
