There could be spot flooding in parts of the country this evening with two counties under a status-yellow rain warning from Met Éireann.
The weather warning for Galway and Mayo, currently in force, will run until midnight.
“Further heavy showers or longer spells of rain may lead to spot flooding in places,” said the national forecaster.
Met Éireann said Saturday would be cloudy over the western half of the country with showers or longer spells of rain, some heavy, with the chance of isolated thundery bursts and hail.
