Forecasters say Wednesday's spell of wet weather across counties Antrim, Armagh, Down and Londonderry cleared away during the afternoon.
But with more heavy rain falling on already saturated ground, members of the public have been warned of the potential for localised flooding.
Meanwhile, yellow warnings for rain and wind affecting the whole of Northern Ireland will be in place on Friday.
"Another spell of unsettled weather is expected on Friday with further wet and windy conditions likely across Northern Ireland. In addition, there is the risk of a spell of snow above about 300m early in the morning," the Met Office says.
More than 20mm of rain is expected to fall quite widely on Friday morning.
"Given existing levels of saturation, this could lead to some flooding," forecasters say.
Wind will be strong all day, especially in counties Antrim, Armagh, Down and Londonderry.
"Tides will be very high, and the public should be aware of the risks of large waves and coastal flooding," the Met Office added -with gusts of around 50-60mph over coasts and hills.
