The River Faughan in Drumahoe has already burst its banks along parts of the Fincairn Road.

According to the Met Office, a period of occasionally heavy rain is expected to develop during Monday night and then last through much of Tuesday morning. Rainfall totals of 15-25 mm can be expected widely, with as much as 40 mm over high ground.

Its website said: “The public should be aware of the risk of localised flooding and potential disruption to travel.”
