Offaly slapped with rainfall warning from Met Éireann

Offaly has been described as one of the counties most at risk of heavy rain as Met Éireann issues a national Status Yellow warning.

The Status Yellow advisory warning predicts heavy thundery downpours on Friday with the Midlands and west of the country most at risk.


The conditions will lead to high intensity rainfall in a short period of time and localised spot flooding possible," Met Éireann have warned.

The warning is valid from Friday afternoon at 12pm until Friday night at 9pm.

It looks, however, like the heavy rain won't be around after Friday with the national forecaster saying "weather will stay essentially dry and warm over the weekend."

Saturday will be "very warm" with temperatures getting up to the mid twenties. While good spells of sunshine will arise, showers will occur more widely - especially inland during the afternoon and evening with an ongoing chance of thunder. Winds will stay light and variable.

There will be ittle change on Sunday. Most places will be dry with warm sunny spells. Scattered heavy showers are likely especially across the south in light variable mainly northerly breezes.
