The latest status yellow warning, which was issued this Monday morning, states there will be “scattered thunderstorms developing through the afternoon and evening with heavy downpours and a risk of localised flooding”.

The warning, which remains valid from midday until 9pm, applies to Limerick Cavan, Monaghan, Donegal, Carlow, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Longford, Louth, Offaly, Westmeath, Meath, Galway, Leitrim, Roscommon, Sligo, Clare, Cork, Kerry and Tipperary.

While there have been some spectacular images and videos of lightning and rainfall posted on social media over the last two days, there have been no major incidents in Limerick associated with the thunderstorms.
