A Status Yellow weather warning remains in place until 3am.
And after a day of non-stop driving rain, Met Éireann says we’re in for another wet and windy (if relatively mild) night, with alerts in place for ten counties, including Cork, Kerry, Carlow, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Wexford, Wicklow and Tipperary.
“Further outbreaks of rain tonight, heavy at times bringing a continued risk of localised flooding.” said a forecaster, regarding conditions on Leeside for the foreseeable.
“Temperatures generally not falling below 8 to 12 degrees. Light to moderate southerly winds will continue to be fresh to strong in southern parts.”
Happily, the forecast doesn’t look as grim for Thursday, which will start out wet before sunny spells break through later in the morning and for the early afternoon with highest temperatures of 12 to 15 degrees.
Meteorologists predict it will remain unsettled for the rest of the week with rain and showers continuing and temperatures returning to more normal (read: cooler) values for the time of year.
