Both river and surface flooding could be on the way.
Cork is one of 10 counties set to be affected by the risk of flooding this week, according to an advisory issued by Met Éireann.
Issued yesterday shortly after 1pm, it reads: “A band of rain is approaching from the Atlantic and is forecast to stall over the western half of the country on Thursday and Friday, leading to persistent and heavy falls in places.
“This may result in some river flooding as well as localised surface flooding.” Met Éireann has noted that further warnings could also be issued in relation to the flooding.
While the advisory note specifies that Thursday and Friday will see the heaviest rain, the advisory is already in effect, meaning that there is a chance of flooding today.
The advisory is expected to remain in place until 6am on Saturday morning. The warning also applies to Kerry, Cork, Limerick, Clare, Donegal and Connacht.
