Latest 4pm: It will be cold after dark this evening, Met Éireann forecasts, with some further wintry showers at times, with a little snow in mountainous areas. Sharp ground frost will develop in places at various times also, leading to icy patches on untreated surfaces.
Heavy showers in parts of the country could lead to flash flooding, but is not likely to make currently flooded areas too much worse.
That is according to Met Éireann who are forecasting heavy scattered showers for this afternoon and evening.
They have also said that the naming of storms probably helped to raise awareness about them and save lives during recent bad weather.
Forecaster Joan Blackburn has said that rain today probably will not make currently flooded areas too much worse.
“The big thing with showers is it is short periods of intense rain, so yes they could cause some local flash flooding, but when it is not prolonged rainfall it wouldn’t be over the catchment area, it probably doesn’t have a major effect.
“Yes, locally it could, but it would probably go down quick enough.”
The cost of the recent storms could be tens of millions of euro, with local authorities still counting the cost of the damage.
Payments are being made to the owners of homes and businesses affected by floods.
Colette Morris from the Irish Red Cross have said they have paid out almost €500,000 to businesses already.
“76% of the applications that were deemed to be eligible have already been paid, in terms of the value issued to date, we are nearing a figure of about €450,000.”
