Met Éireann says driving conditions may be hazardous.

Met Éireann has issued a status yellow rainfall warning for all of Connacht as well as Cavan, Monaghan and Donegal.

Further falls of heavy rain are expected today with localised flooding and hazardous driving conditions.

The warning had originally been issued  for just four counties but was updated it this morning.

The advice will be in place until 9pm this evening as the weather front makes its way in from the west and across the country.
