I am half way between cork & kerry - will be interesting to see if we fall into the red or orange category.

I think it would make more sense to have one thread for wind+rain since its the same event.

i'm in a similar position to you location wise. I think rainfall wise we will be amber but given that Red level rainfall will occur to the west of us, rivers like the Sullane that passes through Macroom but its source is west of us will lead to strong risk of flooding.

It would if it was the same warning status and in this case, it is not

I rarely hear Met Eireann using the word "Incessant" and we have all seen incessant rain before. Should be interesting.

am I right in saying the heaviest most intense rainfall has shifted slightly north to the Northwest since last nights runs?
I'm really hoping the rainfall totals for my area are overcooked.....

Should be able to give a pretty accurate rainfall for Galway City, my rain sensor was blocked with leaves so I took it down yesterday and cleaned it out.

Mod Note: Can we keep everything rain related to this thread. This thread is solely in relation to a red warning for expected very heavy rainfall, in the main, to western counties.

All wind related posts should be posted here: http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showt...p?t=2057530911
