Just in case you thought you’d seen the worst of the rain.
Cork has already been buffeted by rain this week — so much so that an advisory note was issued on Tuesday — but things are about to get even worse.
Met Éireann has followed up on that advisory with a full-blown status yellow rainfall warning for Cork and Kerry, to come into effect from midday today (Thursday, October 7th).
The warning forecasts “prolonged rain with heavier bursts at times, heaviest and most persistent later on Friday. Significant accumulations are possible in upland areas. Risk of localised flooding.” The warning is expected to remain in place until 3am on Saturday morning.
Thankfully, it seems as though the weather will dry out by Saturday morning and that these conditions will persist until Sunday, with good sunny spells expected on both days.
According to Met Éireann’s latest regional forecast for Munster, we can expect Sunday to be “largely dry with sunny spells” with rain confined to the northern coast of the island.
