A status yellow weather warning has been issued for Donegal.

Met Éireann has warned that the county is set to receive scattered thunderstorms on Thursday 13 May across the afternoon and evening with a risk of localised flooding.

The warning is in place from 3.25pm until 10pm on Thursday.

Weekend weather

Parts of the country are set to receive thunderstorms over the weekend, according to Met Éireann.

While many farmers, particularly in the south of the country, may welcome rain, those in the northwest are more likely to wish for a tap to turn off the rain at some point over the weekend – with some fields still very wet from winter months.
