Another new weather warning has been issued for four counties

Two (different) rainfall warnings are still in place.

A fresh weather warning has been issued for four counties as rain continues to fall across the country.

Galway, Mayo, Clare and Kerry have been issued the status yellow caution for today, Friday, April 6

The caution, which comes into effect at 10am today, will last until 6pm.

Met Éireann have said that from the late morning through to this afternoon, southerly winds will reach average speeds of 50 to 65 km/hr at times.

There will also be gusts of 80 to 95 km/hr, with the coastal areas being hit the strongest.

It comes as two status yellow rainfall warnings remain in place for a total of eight counties.

Both of the warnings end at 3pm today.

Kilkenny, Wexford, Clare, Limerick and Tipperary are under an alert for heavy rain, with the risk of spot flooding.

And up to 50mm of rain was forecast overnight in Cork, Kerry and Waterford - who also remain on alert for heavy rain, with the risk of spot flooding.

The widespread rain will continue as the morning goes on, with a pretty unsettled forecast for the rest of the day.

However, as the weekend goes on, the conditions will begin to get drier (and milder).
