‘Heavy rain expected’: Met Éireann issues a Status Yellow warning


Between the recent departure of storm Ophelia and the imminent arrival of Storm Brian, the nation is certainly due a reprieve.

But, according to the good folk at Met Éireann, it's not meant to be.

Forecasters have confirmed that a number of counties around the country are set to experience heavy, thundery rain both today and tomorrow.

"Rain, in the south this morning, will become widespread this afternoon with hill and coastal fog also," reads an update on their website.

"Widespread mist, fog and drizzle tonight will give way to a spell of heavy and possibly thundery rain. The rain is expected to arrive on the west coast before midnight and slowly cross the country, arriving in the east on Thursday morning."

The worst effected areas include Munster, Dublin, Carlow, Kilkenny, Louth, Wexford, Wicklow and Meath, with rain expected to reach between 30 and 50mm.
