The predicted swell at 3am tomorrow [Magic Seaweed]There’ll be further widespread rain tomorrow, “with some thundery downpours likely and the ongoing danger of flooding”.Speaking on Morning Ireland, the weather service’s Gerald Fleming said that while the rain band and the showers were exceptionally unusual, the conditions posed a risk because rivers were already at such a high level.“Cork, Kerry, Clare and Limerick will get the heaviest rain tonight,” Fleming said.He warned that further weather systems were on the way next week, and that pattern would continue “as far ahead as we can see”.More stormy weather and heavy rain is expected on Tuesday, Thursday and “possibly Friday,” according to Fleming.(Note: Live near a river?

Some of the showers will be very heavy or possibly thundery overnight and winds will continue strong and blustery, with some severe winds on southwestern and southern coasts.
