60 millimetres of rain falls in North Louth in the past 24 hours

While 60 millimetres of rain fell in North Louth in the past 24 hours, there will be yet further heavy showers today with flooding likely in places, as soils are saturated and river levels are high. Squally showers on Wednesday morning will be accompanied by very gusty conditions. Later Wednesday and on Thursday, further rainfall associated with Storm Ciarán may lead to flooding. It is likely that the heaviest rain will be in southern and eastern coastal counties.
