Heavy rain expected as yellow warning comes into effect

UPDATED: 27/08/2020 7.00am

A status yellow rain warning is currently in effect for southern counties.

Met Éireann issued the warning yesterday following a week of stormy conditions in the country.

The forecaster is predicting heavy rainfall that could cause more flooding in areas affected by storms in the past week.

The warning originally covered Carlow, Kilkenny, Laois, Wexford, Wicklow, Offaly and all of Munster, but has since been extended to include all of Leinster.

"Intense and potentially thundery downpours" are expected.

The warning began at 6am and will remain in place until 6am on Friday.

River flooding is an ongoing concern, as Storms Ellen and Francis have raised levels in recent days.
