Status Yellow weather warning in place for Limerick with heavy rain forecast

HEAVY thundery downpours are expected across Munster this Sunday, according to a Met Eireann weather alert.

The forecaster has issued a Status Yellow rainfall warning for Munster, Connacht and Leinster this Sunday.

It came into effect at 12pm and runs until 8pm this Sunday night.

“Some heavy thundery downpours this afternoon and evening, with a risk of local spot flooding,” warns Met Eireann.

It is currently dry and quite warm in Limerick this Sunday lunchtime, but poor weather is on the way, according to Met Eireann.

AA Roadwatch is urging motorists to pay attention to conditions, with roads already wet in much of Tipperary and Cork.
