Status Yellow: MET Éireann warns of heavy rain, hail and thunder

MET Éireann has issued a status yellow weather warning for five counties in Leinster this morning. People in Dublin, Louth, Wicklow, Kildare and Meath have been advised there will be heavy rain, hail and possible thunder until midday.

The MET office said, “Further heavy showers or longer spells of rain will lead to rainfall accumulations of 25 to 35mm.”

Forecasters added it will be cold and breezy, with some hail and a risk of isolated thunderstorms and local spot flooding. “Showers will become a bit more scattered later this afternoon and evening,” they said.

Drive safely

AA Roadwatch has asked for motorists to be particularly vigilant on roads this morning. “Roads are damp or wet in much of the country this morning, following overnight rain,” they announced in a statement online. “It’s particularly wet in parts of the Midlands and along the East Coast.

“When driving on wet roads slow down and leave a safe distance between yourself and the vehicle in front.”

They issued additional information for people in Louth, saying, “There is some flooding in Drogheda on the Donore Rd coming up to the M1. There is also a report of excess surface water near the train station on the Dublin Rd (R132).”
