Status Yellow Rain warning for Waterford

Sarah Mooney

A Status Yellow Rain warning comes into effect for Waterford from 10pm tonight.

It's one of the five counties that could experience localised flooding and isolated thunderstorms later today when a number of Met Éireann rain warnings come into force.

The status-yellow weather warnings for the counties in the south and west will see “spells of heavy rain at times, heaviest in coastal and mountainous areas.”

“Localised flooding and isolated thunderstorms possible,” the forecaster added.

The warning in Waterford and Cork will be in effect until 2pm on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, a Status Yellow rain warning is in place for Galway, Mayo and Kerry since 1pm,  and will remain in place until 10am on Tuesday.

Met Éireann said the eastern half of the country will meanwhile experience sunny spells and a few isolated showers this afternoon.

It will be cloudier further west, with rain developing along the west coast by noon and then extending over much of the western half of the country.

Highest temperatures of 14 to 17 or 18 degrees are forecast, before the mercury drops to between 10 and 13 degrees in a “wet and breezy” night.

Tuesday will start off wet over the eastern half of Ireland, before the rain clears eastwards by noon.

Sunny spells and scattered showers are forecast for the rest of the day, with highest temperatures of 14 to 19 degrees.

Showery conditions look set to persist for the week, according to Met Éireann, due in part to low pressure to the northwest of the country.
