This evening will entail further rain and drizzle as well as becoming windy overnight with temperatures between 6 – 8 degrees.

Cork City Council has issued a tidal flood alert for 9.04am tomorrow morning.

“A tidal surge, southerly winds and a low-pressure area in combination with Spring Tide may give rise to tidal flooding tomorrow,” the Council said.

Tomorrow looks to continue the wet and windy trend with persistent spells of rain and drizzle occurring throughout the day.

Temperatures will reach 11 -12 degrees although strong southwesterly winds will continue to remain blustery.
