*updated title as new warning out*

Some very high rainfall totals expected over the next 48 hours with possibly even more over the following 48 hours.

Status Yellow rainfall warning in place:

We don't have a yellow warning here in Wicklow, but most of the roads in Greystones and surrounds are flooded. Microbursts of torrential rain early this morning. Roads are almost at a stand still.

According to Ashford weather station its 40mm now. Wonder why wicklow not mentioned in warning. Seems a bit odd. Had to take alternative route to the school as my usual road flooded.

It's a mix of showers and clear spells here in Wexford,we even had sunshine earlier after a wet night.
My car was frozen at 10pm and it was gone up to 6c 2 hours later and then the rain started.
