Yellow warning of rain

Be aware

22:00 on Wednesday until 14:00 on Thursday

A spell of heavy rain will develop across Northern Ireland during Wednesday evening and Thursday morning. Periods of snowfall are expected in amongst this, predominantly over higher ground but with a risk to lower levels for a time. Finally, later on Thursday morning, gale force winds are expected as the system clears to the east. Please be aware of the potential for some travel disruption, localised flooding and surface spray.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

Rainfall totals of 20-30 mm could bring some localised flooding and surface water issues, with any temporary snowfall bringing some difficult travel conditions. Then later on Thursday morning gusts of 55 mph could bring some minor travel disruption.
