Heavy rain expected early next week with flooding possible

A weather warning for rain has been issued for early next week with flooding in some areas possible.

The Met Office has also forecast that hill snow is to be expected in some higher areas.

The yellow warning will come into effect between 9am on Monday and last for 24 hours.

Across Northern Ireland 15 to 25 mm of rain is likely, with 40 to 60mm possible in eastern parts of the province.

Several cms of snow could fall on higher ground, although any snow falling on lower surfaces is unlikely to accumulate.

The public have been told there is a small chance flooding will impact businesses and homes, and there is a chance of delays or cancellations to train and bus services.

Rain has also been forecast for Saturday, with Sunday expected to get the best of the weekend's weather.

More extreme conditions are expected to hit other parts of the UK, with a snow warning in place in southwest England and south Wales for Sunday and Monday.
