Drivers take care: Rainfall warnings issued across the country today


Status yellow rainfall warnings have been issued across the country as the wet weather has arrived. 

Galway, Mayo, Clare and Kerry can expect up to 50mm of rainfall, and the warning is in place until 6pm this evening. 

Offaly, Limerick and Tipperary can expect up to 40mm of rainfall, and the warning is also in place until 6pm this evening. 

The Road Safety Authority has asked drivers to slow down on the roads.

Drivers are warned to increase their breaking distance between vehicles. 

Many roads are coated in surface water, and so aquaplaning is a risk. 

Flash flooding may also occur. 

Stay safe out there.
