Met Éireann says 30 to 50 mm of rain are likely over west Cork and over south and west Kerry. Larger amounts of rain are possible on mountains.

Many places will be dry, but scattered outbreaks of rain in southwestern and western coastal counties this morning will become heavy and persistent there during the day and spread further east over Munster later.
