Commuters in Cork are advised to drive with care when travelling into the city centre this morning and evening.
Cork City Council says some roads and parking areas along low-lying quays may suffer localised flooding during high tides.
Mr Nolan said this heavy rain should begin to clear in the afternoon.
“In the evening hours it will start to brighten up and as we go into tonight, we will see clear breaks,” he said.
“That will lead into a pretty dry bright day for many tomorrow.
“With that, some heavy showers will be in places as well, but these are mostly scattered.”
