I don’t often question the Met Éireann warnings but this looks nasty and potential for some serious flooding!

Any thunderstorms going to be associated with this? It does look nasty to be honest, flooding in all
Of cork and Kerry is a real possibility. The likes of Bantry and Kenmare have been through the mill a lot later as has Cork City Centre

Windy overnight Mon into Tues, high end yellow warning but close enough to an Orange warning perhaps. Main issue though looks to be rainfall amounts, yellow warnings and possibly meeting Orange warning criteria in the SW, and S .Could get quite a large area getting over 50 mm in 24 hrs and rain set to continue into Weds . This on top of saturated ground and full lakes and rivers.

Looking at that I'm glad I got over to Barrow today. Beautiful after hardly a breeze

Looking at the blackwater since Friday, obviously it broke its banks and spilled onto park road in Mallow, but it’s seriously fast moving and full now, you’ve so much water flowing into it, Kanturk rivers heaving, Funcheon heaving as well

Gerry Murphy after the news emphasized the strong winds and significant gusts and threats of flooding in Munster and said to keep an eye on warnings for updates.

Latest ICON 18Z has eased off the winds a fair bit, UKMO not a great chart but showing stronger winds and high rainfall totals. There will be some water coming off the mountains, I agree places like Kenmare would need to be on high alert.

The water on the macroom side of the dam is seriously high this evening with this amount of rain to come!

Latest GFS quite strong around the coasts, not as big rainfall totals but would be looking towards the more Hi Res models from here.

ARPEGE 18Z still showing some strong winds around the coasts, especially the SW

Approx 24 hrs of rainfall below apart from a few mm extra perhaps.

I'm predicting a lot of serious flooding with this event, rivers are already very high and many fields waterlogged. A dry spell will be welcome, hopefully.

Yep this is going to show the farce that is rainfall warnings when we don't have a flood warning system up and running fully yet. A yellow warning with up to 100mm coming and many parts of the Southwest going to flood!

This needs attention quickly!

The windy app has downgraded the winds for the Wicklow coast since last night with the GFS, ECM and Arome models all down. Icon keeps them stronger. Rainfall totals looking like about 40mm for the Wicklow coast too again according to Windy's representation of the model data.

Strange that Wicklow is not included in the yellow warning. Looks like it will be wet, especially so in the afternoon. Ground very saturated as it is.
