Now would be a good time to clear those gutters.
Forecasters have warned that heavy rain in the southwest will extend to all areas overnight and may cause flooding on Leeside.
While today will be cloudy and breezy in Cork with a little rain or drizzle, there’s no harm in prepping in case we get anything on the scale of Sunday’s deluge, an exceptional rainfall event that saw 55 mm of rain drench the city – nearly four times the 15mm predicted.
“Tomorrow, Wednesday, the rain will break up for a time during the morning before picking up again in the afternoon. It’ll be heavy and persistent with localised flooding possible again.” said a forecaster.
“Highest temperatures of 13 to 15 degrees. Easterly winds will be fresh to strong and gusty.”
