Another interesting fish being progged to develop this weekend. Develops as an interaction between some tropical air mass that gets dragged up over the continent and the cool maritime airmass over Ireland.
The combination is a large moisture ladden depression approaching from southern France and the Med. A very strange source for a system affecting Ireland.
At the moment the system is bring progged to the south of Ireland but it remains a real threat and is forecast at just T90hrs.
It is of particular interest as it is a very untypical type of system that has a small chance of bringing exceptional windspeeds from a easterly direction, not what we are used to.
Here are few charts.
