Status Yellow rainfall warning issued for Kilkenny
DON’T leave home without your umbrella today – Kilkenny and the South East is going to be hit with up to 30mm of lashing rain.
Met Eirenn has issued a Status Yellow rainfall warning for Kilkenny and neighbouring counties Carlow, Wexford, Waterford and Wicklow.
It came into effect at 9pm last night and will remain in place until 11am this morning.
A forecaster said: “A damp or locally wet start to Monday after overnight rain, with surface flooding across parts of Leinster.
“Dull and misty for much of the day, with further outbreaks of rain and drizzle, easing off at times though with longer drier spells – staying largely dry in the far southwest. Highest temperatures of 9C to 13C (west to east), in near calm.”
Tonight will see more rain, starting off in the east and gradually moving westwards. Lowest temperatures of 4C to 9C, coolest in the west.
Unfortunately, tomorrow doesn’t look much better with the forecaster predicting more rain and a risk of spot flooding.
They added: “Heavy rain and onshore winds, will bring the risk of spot flooding to some southern and eastern counties. The heaviest of the rain will become largely confined to the north and northeast by evening.”
