    Forecast for the South, Cork in particular, doesn't look good for tomorrow with up to 70mm of precip reported to fall. Higher grounds look like getting the worst of it, making climbing conditions almost impossible and you could be looking at the risk of of water/mud running off hills onto the roads.

    Met Eireann have issued an Orange warning for Cork and Yellow for Clare, Limerick, Tipp and Waterford.
    STATUS ORANGE

    Rainfall Warning for Cork
    40 to 70 mm Rainfall. Heaviest falls along the south coast and in mountainous areas. High tides also

    Was crossing sarsfield bridge in Limerick and was surprised at the strength of the wind for the direction, very rare alright. There seems to be some rain shield operating here as other than a light shower about 9 it seems to be missing us.

    Cork got battered this morning from primarily coastal / tidal flooding. The gale force Easterly wind today won't leave this mornings high tide out and will back up the harbour. Tonight's high tide around 8:30 will be far more serious imo. A red alert wouldn't surprise me for Cork later.
    It's certainly warranted as life will be at risk near the shore.

    In summary expect this mornings on going flood to be a splash in the park compared to what's coming...

    Check out "Cork Safety Alerts" on facebook for images of snow, flooding and the easterly wind causing damage, from this morning.

    And even less common is the fact that the Easterly wind warning is mainly for Western counties!

    Easterlies with spring tides are always bad news for Cork city, this mornings flooding seems more widespread than usual judging from the Facebook page.

    What's strange about this morning is how it's not really subsiding (if reports are true south terrace is still flooded) with high tide passed nearly 3 hours ago

    Quite stormy with heavy rain in West Clare atm. Bit louder than usual and different noises than usual thanks to the easterly wind this time.

    Right in the middle of that red and it's well noticeable! Although it's lightened in the past 5 minutes, it was very extreme before that.

    Pretty wild here too the last hour or so. Nothing unusual about the speed itself(gusting near 40 knots) but the unusual direction makes it seem oddly clamorous or something.

    Wind is still whistling through the vents here in Cork City.
    It's a fairly wild day to put it mildly. We'd few branches down in the back garden.

    As a result of the strong easterly winds in Cork, 6 flights have diverted to SNN.
