'Flooding likely' as yellow weather warning issued for Northern Ireland

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for Northern Ireland with heavy showers expected on Saturday.

The weather warning will be in place between 6am and 4pm on Saturday.

Temperatures will be cooler across Northern Ireland this weekend with highs of 18C on Saturday and 19C on Sunday.

A Met Office spokesperson has warned that flooding of homes and businesses is likely.

Bus and train services will probably be affected with journey times taking longer and motorists warned to be aware of spray and flooding on roads.

"Slow moving heavy showers will affect parts of Northern Ireland on Saturday morning, easing later on Saturday afternoon," the spokesperson said.

"There may even be the odd rumble of thunder. Rainfall accumulations of 10mm in an hour and 30mm in a 3 hour period are possible. However many places will see much lower rainfall amounts."
