Motorists are being advised to drive with caution in Dundalk and the surrounding areas this evening, as torrential rain has caused floods to appear on some roads.

The heavy rain is set to continue for a time tonight before clearing later.

Motorists are also reminded by AA Roadwatch that the N53 is closed west of Dundalk, between Hackballscross and Rassan until Mon 7th Dec for works. Traffic should divert via Ardee and Carrickmacross.

Met Éireann advise that conditions will improve later:
