A Status Yellow rainfall warning is currently in place for Roscommon, the rest of Connacht, Donegal, Clare, Cork, Kerry and Limerick.
Heavy and persistent rain through to Friday morning will lead to some flooding and disruption. Accumulations of 30mm to 60mm are expected widely, with higher values in mountainous regions.
The weather warning is in place since 00.01 Thursday October 29th and is valid until 06.00 Friday 30th October.
While the Status Yellow wind warning that is also in place for Thursday does not affect Roscommon, it will affect Galway and Mayo and will no doubt be felt in parts of this county.
After a break on Friday, the wet weather returns for the weekend with Met Eireann predicting very unsettled, possibly stormy conditions at times over Saturday and Sunday and into the early days of next week, with further rain leading to the risk of flooding.
But there is some good news. Current indications are for further showery conditions on Tuesday next before high pressure builds, for the middle of the week, bringing more settled conditions.
