Here comes the rain

By Kevin O’Brien

Time to get your weatherproofs down from the attic, folks - autumn weather arrives this weekend.

Heavy rain, thundery downpours and spot flooding over Thursday night and Friday morning will bring poor conditions to the south and to the west of the country according to Met Eireann.

Cork city council have already issued a Code Orange weather warning, as have others.



The wet weather looks set to last throughout most of Friday in the west and south, before spreading east, though Met Eireann says it will possibly ease up on Friday afternoon, giving us some bit of relief at least.

Here comes the rain

Dublin and the rest of the east coast will miss the worst of the rain on Friday, though there will be heavy rainfall in parts of the east.
