The models are fairly grouped with rainfall totals. That's a huge amount of rain going to fall in 24 hrs or so and set to continue in places some bit into Weds. Must be some serious flood risks in the SW and S.

Just going to include the AROME model's predicted gusts. Seems a fair bit lower than some of the other models but did very well the last windy day. Will see how it does again.

I ask as a girl I know who works in a local shop said she feels snow in her bones and thinks we will get a dump of it tonight - everyone in shop took heed as she’s been right in the past when met eireann got it wrong
Snow is very likely alright, but only above around 2000 metres. She's good

Looks like a normal week in kerry then.
This really makes me want to take my 10 year old advice and move back to Dublin.

Just glad I'm on a mountain.

Lee Road in Cork closed due to flooding already, and it begins... Must be due to the extra water being released from the Dam

Yes, and the rain hasn't even started!

Would it not have made more sense to release it yesterday or the day before rather than now?

The weather warnings are all over the place today, really poor from a communications point of view, the poor forecaster couldn’t even list all the counties before 6pm news and then they go and make it nationwide!

Why do people choose to live in this area?

Does this have potential to hit Red in any areas?

Looking at the criteria it seems borderline in places

They don't. The Lee Fields, the area that is currently and often flooded is a green amenity area alongside a major road.

No fault to Met Éireann put there warning page is a absolute mess. Should of issued a Status yellow rainfall and wind warning for the whole country with a Orange warning for the southern parts. A orange warning also could of been issued yesterday which would give places more time to prepare. The low pressure system will be a high impact and should of been named also. I don't normally have a problem the way they handle things as most of the time the handle weather events very well but this time its been very badly done. For a normal person to go on and check there warnings I think the would look at it and be like nope not going to try and even work that out

How does that compare with past events? I have no grasp of rainfall figures.
Rainfall totals for various Cork stations (including some rainfall only stations) during the previous infamous wet periods of 2009 and 2015 in the region. For both of these years, the ground had already been saturated with plentiful rain from prior month or weeks. Just a small sample space but hopefully gives you an idea.
