Rain and sleet with hill snow on Saturday will become heavy and persistent. Any sleet or snow reverting to rain by Sunday morning with further falls of rain set to continue pretty much unabated throughout Sunday and Monday. Totals of up to 75mm, especially on higher ground can be expected.
With the forecast rain and snow on top of already saturated grounds, we advise people in lower lying regions close to rivers and streams to take action over the coming days to negate floods from affecting their properties this weekend and into early next week.
Thanks to Laois Weather for this forecast.
