No end in sight for rain with ‘possibly thundery falls’

According to Met Éireann, outbreaks of rain will become widespread this morning (Friday, August 20th, 2021).

The national forecaster warned that rain will be heavy and possibly thundery in places – especially in western parts.

There is a risk of localised flooding with highest temperatures of 17 to 20 degrees. Rain will start to clear in the west and south-west later in the afternoon, where it will brighten up with lighter winds.

The national forecaster has issued a status yellow rainfall warning for three counties. The alert is in place in Mayo, Galway and Kerry until 4 pm this afternoon.

It has warned of “heavy and possibly thundery falls of rain at times on Thursday night and on Friday with a risk of localised flooding”.

Meanwhile, tonight will be dry in many places for a period before widespread misty conditions and fog settle in.

The south-east will experience a spell of heavy rain overnight, with showers to move into the south-west and west towards morning.

Temperatures will remain above 14 degrees in the east, with lower values of 11 to 14 degrees in the west.
