Flooding occurred in Malahide and Swords, as an advisory for heavy thundery showers throughout the country remains in effect until 5am on Thursday.

The national forecaster says Wednesday will bring sunny spells and heavy blustery showers, as well as the risk of thunderstorms and localised flooding.

It will feel fresher than previous days with temperatures ranging from 15 to 19 degrees.

Thursday will be another day of bright spells and rain. The showers will be heavy in places, particularly across Ulster, with a risk of isolated thunderstorms.

The best of the sunshine will be seen across the southeast of the country, with temperatures ranging from 15 to 19 degrees.

Friday will see good sunny spells but with scattered showers spreading from the northwest during the day.

The showers may merge to give longer spells of rain in the Atlantic coastal counties as temperatures will be between 16 to 20 degrees.
