Met Eireann had forecasted that flooding was possible in areas where heavy downpours happen.

A separate Status Orange thunderstorm warning for Munster and counties Carlow, Kilkenny, Wexford and Wicklow comes into effect when the national warning ends at 9am and will be in place until 4pm.

Showers will be intense through the afternoon with the risk of flooding, Met √Čireann has said.
