Cork County Council has advised that the rainfall and easterly winds will coincide with high tideas in all coastal areas between 4am and 6am tomorrow morning, and again tomorrow evening continuing into Wednesday.

Motorists and pedestrians are advised to take caution in coastal areas. The council said it will monitor surge and sea levels during the period of the notice.
