ANOTHER RAINFALL WARNING has been issued for Cork and Kerry with heavy downpours expected tonight.

A status yellow rainfall warning will be in place for the two counties from 6pm today until 6am tomorrow.

Met Éireann says heavy rain tonight “could see 12-hour accumulations in excess of 25mm in parts of Cork and Kerry”, with higher ground and coastal areas set to be worst affected.

Separate rain warnings were issued for 15 counties, including Cork and kerry, yesterday but have since been lifted.

Overall, today will be mainly dry with sunny spells. Temperatures will reach 16 to 19 degrees, with highest temperatures in the east of the country. Winds will be mainly moderate and southwesterly.

Cloud will build in the southwest later this afternoon, with rain expected early this evening.

Rain will spread northeastwards this evening and tonight and will be heavy for a time before clearing eastwards overnight. Lowest temperatures will dip to 12 or 13 degrees with moderate to fresh southeast winds.

Weekend weather 

Met Éireann says any lingering rain will clear early tomorrow morning and it’ll become largely dry with sunny spells for much of the day.

However, there will be a narrow band of showery rain in the west in the afternoon, sweeping eastwards over the country during the evening. Highest temperatures will reach 18 to 21 degrees. Once again it’ll be warmest in the east.

Tomorrow night will be mostly dry with isolated showers, mainly on western coasts. Lowest overnight temperatures will be 11 or 12 degrees and winds will be moderate to fresh from a southerly direction.

Sunday will start out largely dry, but isolated showers in the west will become more frequent during the morning and widespread in the afternoon.

The showers will die out again in the early evening and it’ll be a largely dry night. However, showers will linger on western coasts. Temperatures on Sunday afternoon will be between 15 and 17 degrees, before dipping to 10 or 11 degrees that night.
