There’s a very specific type of rainfall warning in place for Cork tonight
Prepare for ‘squally* showers’.
That’s the advice from Met Eireann this morning, with a Status Yellow Rainfall warning in place for this evening, Monday, March 11th from 6pm.
The warning, which covers Cork, Kerry, Connacht, Donegal, Clare and Limerick, will remain active until 6am on Tuesday, March 12th.
‘Heavy rain followed by squally showers will lead to the risk of rainfall accumulations of around 25mm.’ says the national forecaster.
And as if a deluge wasn’t enough to look forward to, there is also a Status Yellow wind warning in place for the entire country, with westerly winds due to reach speeds of up to 65km per hour and a risk of coastal flooding due to high seas along Atlantic coasts.
*Squall: a sudden violent gust of wind or localised storm, especially one bringing rain, snow, or sleet.
