Weekend weather to be a lot cooler and drier in Donegal

Met Eireann has warned of heavy rainfall in Donegal this evening as thunderstorms have moved up from southern parts of the country.

But the Northwest looks like it will escape the flooding that has hit the North-East and South of the country.

Earlier this afternoon there were huge downpours in several parts of the county, with Inishowen the worst effected.

Forecaster with Met Eireann, Eion Sherlock, said while there will be heavy downpours this evening, it should clear up and get a lot cooler over the weekend.....
