The barrow has already flooded in parts in the town although not to any severe extent and in other parts of the county, luckily nowhere near as bad as in Kilkenny and wexford. Only raining very lightly here this morning, hopefully it stays that way

Yes the Barrow has dropped a fair bit but I'm afraid your hope of rain staying light is unlikely to happen and if we see over 100mm on high ground I'm not sure the defences will hold

Going through the charts I really don't think a Yellow warning is enough, certainly isn't if you take existing water levels into account!

Any opinions on upgrading warning level here? I usually like to go with Met Eireann but I'm not so sure on this one
