Looks like quite complex weather reflected by how different the models are showing track and wind strengths tomorrow.

Models again differing quite a bit in accumulated amounts. The HIRLAM probably the closest to the warning totals. I'm thinking this is where the forecasters are using their experience in this kind of a complex set up

ARPEGE latest run showing stronger winds then the previous run move into Kerry and across southern counties tomorrow evening. GFS and WRF hasn't caught on to this yet. Wouldn't be surprised to see this looking stronger again on the next runs .

Fast moving deepening area of LP moving across Ireland in around 5hrs or so. One to keep an eye on.

The French models have brought the track of the Low further North on the latest run. The strongest winds on a Track from Galway across the midlands to Dublin. Moving very quickly but could pack a punch with winds possibly gusting 110-120 km/h here for a short time.





Thw WRF -NMM not as strong but blustery nonetheles across the country.

That clear slot approaching the coast is where I would imagine the strong winds will arrive from.

Avoiding the rain here in Kerry apart from mist/ drizzle. I see Claremorris had 11 mm up until 12.00, must have had a fair amount since then.

Newport Mayo 11.6mm in the 16.00 reports for the previous hour

ARPEGEE has toned down the wind speed a bit in the latest run but looks strong as the Low deepens and exits the E coast later tonight.

Fast moving and brief but quite windy nonetheless.
