Met Office weather warning: Flooding alert issued as heavy rain to trigger traffic chaos

Northern Ireland’s eastern counties are set for heavy rain from 5am to 10am on Thursday. The weather agency has warned the downpour could “bring localised flooding and some travel disruption”.

In a statement, the Met Office said: “An area of heavy rain is likely to develop early on Thursday morning. 

“This could bring 20-30mm within a few hours, which would be enough to bring some flooding to prone spots.”

County Antrim, County Armagh and County Down are covered by the weather warning.
