Donegal has been issued with a status ‘Yellow Warning’ as forecasters have predicted a deluge of heavy downpours is set to batter the county tomorrow.
Motorists have been urged to drive with extreme caution, and have been advised not to undertake any unnecessary journeys if possible.
Weather experts are predicting heavy rain (40-60mm) throughout the day tomorrow and tomorrow night, which will likely result in localised flooding in some areas.
Other counties set to be affected by the torrential rain are Dublin, Louth, Wexford, Wicklow, Meath and Monaghan, Cavan and Donegal.
STATUS YELLOW – BE ALERT
The concept behind YELLOW level weather alerts is to notify those who are at risk because of their location and/or activity, and to allow them to take preventative action.
It is implicit that YELLOW level weather alerts are for weather conditions that do not pose an immediate threat to the general population, but only to those exposed to risk by nature of their location and/or activity.Tags:
