Potential for flooding as weather warning in place for Northern Ireland

PSNI have warned motorists to take care on the roads

There will be potential flooding and hazardous driving conditions this weekend with heavy rainfall expected as a result of a weather warning.

The rain warning is in place from Friday September 11 at 6pm until Saturday September 12 at 2pm.

A yellow warning had been issued yesterday, but has since been cancelled by the Met Office.

The PSNI have warned motorists to take care on the roads.

The Met Office have said outbreaks of rain will spread eastwards across Northern Ireland this evening and will probably turn persistent and heavy in places tonight and into Saturday before clearing from the west.

There is the potential for disruption due to flooding and hazardous driving conditions as the Met Office have warned there could be more than 40mm of rainfall in places.

The chief forecaster said: "The current settled spell of weather will break down as an Atlantic low pressure system pushes in across the area later Friday.

"More than 40 mm could fall within 24 hours in places, though most parts are likely to have much less, and at this stage there remains a lot of uncertainty about how extensive and heavy the rain will be."
