I think a fresh thread for this is needed.

Looks like this system will pack a punch and likely to have a greater impact on people than Storm Dylan.

It will likely be named in the morning.

EURO4 has it developing rapidly as it crosses Ireland with very strong winds aloft.

ECMWF 12z will be out momentarily.

Yea was thinking that this looks very strong in the SW initially late afternoon / early evening and some evidence for strong winds traversing the country later in the evening. Tricky one as it is deepening on its way across Ireland into the UK.

GFS called last storm correctly. Doesn't make much of this. Gusts in the 50s miles per for Dublin
