Weather: Northern Ireland flood warning as yellow alert for rain issued

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for rain saying there is a possibility some parts of Northern Ireland could be hit by flooding.

The rain warning will be in place between 5pm on Tuesday until 8am on Wednesday, mainly affecting parts of Antrim, Armagh, Down, Fermanagh and County Tyrone.

The Met Office said: "Heavy rain is expected later on Tuesday and early on Wednesday. This may cause flooding on the transport network, with spray and difficult driving conditions due to the combination of rain and wind.

"There is also a small chance of flooding affecting homes and businesses. Note also the possibility of strong winds in the south of the area."

A separate warning for wind is also in place from 8pm on Tuesday until 10am on Wednesday. Gusts have been predicted to hit up to 75mph.
