Met Éireann has issued a weather warning for Co Kerry, with heavy rainfall, spot flooding and hazardous driving conditions expected. In place from 7am tomorrow morning until 7am on Thursday, according to the national broadcaster:

“Heavy rainfall will bring 35 to 50 mm of rain with higher amounts possible in mountainous areas. Spot flooding, poor visibility and hazardous driving conditions are expected.”

A small craft warning is also in place due to strong northwesterly winds on coasts from Rossan Point to Belfast Lough to Howth Head.

The national forecast promises to be light and breezy with scattered showers expected to mostly die out by this evening. “Tonight will be mainly dry with clear spells and perhaps a few light showers in northern areas. cloud will thicken in the southwest overnight. Lowest temperatures of 7 to 10 degrees in light and variable breezes.”

Wednesday will start off mainly dry with sunny spells, particularly in the northeast. However, rain will develop in the southwest early in the morning, gradually extending northeastwards.”The rain will be heaviest in the southwest with spot flooding possible. Highest temperatures of only 14 to 17 degrees with moderate to fresh south to southeast winds.”

The latter end of the week looks to be more promising with highs of 23 and 24 degrees expected on Thursday and Friday respectively. More on that here.
