Get set for damp Halloween

PEOPLE might want to add wellies and brollies to their Halloween costumes as heavy rain is due to hit tonight.

Temperatures will dip further and flood warnings have been issued just in time for the official beginning of winter.

Met Eireann have warned that parts of the country will experience more localised flooding tonight.

The AA has also advised motorists to drive very carefully and be extra cautious as unsettled weather could make the roads very dangerous especially with trick-or-treaters out on Sunday evening.

"There will be some showers today but it will be mostly dry until this evening when the rain will be pushing up from the south, with some significant falls overnight," a Met Eireann spokesperson told the Herald.

"It will make for a very wet day tomorrow with a slight risk of localised flooding," he added.

Parts of the country were paralysed yesterday after torrential rain.

A section of a pavement collapsed in Bray, Co Wicklow, after the rain eroded the street, leaving behind a 30ft hole on the Dargle road.

Gardai last night reported large volumes of surface water which could prove dangerous for drivers.
