TWO WEATHER WARNINGS have been issued by Met Éireann this morning, ahead of expected heavy rain tomorrow.

A yellow alert, the lowest category of warning under the weather service’s advisory system, applies for Kerry, Limerick, Tipperary and Waterford from 6am tomorrow for the following 24 hours. 25 to 50mm of rainfall is expected, with the heaviest falls in mountainous areas.

A more serious orange warning applies for Cork for the same period.

According to Met Éireann, Cork will have:

40 to 70 mm rainfall. Heaviest falls along the south coast and in mountainous areas. High tides also.

It will be cold with sunny spells and outbreaks of rain this afternoon, with some sleet on higher ground.

Tonight will be largely dry with clear spells, with the rain spreading across the country from Munster and south Leinster early tomorrow.
