Orange Rainfall Warning For Cork - Yellow For Rest Of Munster - 10-11th April 2016

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.

Very strong Easterly winds tomorrow.

Cork airport 6pm TAF gives 080 degrees 25knots gusting 40knots and 100 degrees 27knots gusting 45knots. Both speeds almost unheard of from that directions/

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...

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
