A Status Yellow weather warning is still in place as heavy rain is plaguing the east of the country.

Heavy showery rain will continue to affect many places this afternoon and this evening,” said Hugh Daly of Met Eireann.

However, the west is escaping the worst of the weather, with coastal counties to remain drier.

The rain is expected to ease this evening in the east coast, but it will remain misty and damp overnight with patches of fog thickening later on.

There have been heavy spells of rain over the past four days and there will be a danger of local flooding in areas.

Drivers are advised to drive cautiously as occasional spot flooding is likely on the east coast.
