    I would think a very fast steering Jet would be a significant factor .

    That first swathe of strong winds into Clare are not really appearing in the Shannon TAF. The edge of strongest winds will skirt the area so the forecast could be spot on or may need upgrading if the wind area is slightly further north.

    No not unusual I would think, just an active phase of weather atm.

    EDIT: misread your post, changed my reply, not unusual for this time of the year, can get a bit of every thing this month and the next ! :)

    First round of strong winds has largely missed to the south, catching the Kinsale energy platform around 05-06h and heading for south Wales. A second round is indicated to hit north Kerry and west Limerick (possibly south Clare) around 1100h. Expect gusts to about 110 or possibly 120 km/hr. This will not be too strong further north according to the guidance, and the effects will then be less intense further east as the feature weakens slightly heading towards Cork-Waterford 1400h.

    SPECI at Kerry Airport in the last 5 mins as the wind starts to pick up and moderate rain sets in. Wind 20 mins ago was just 8 kts.

    Ballyheigue at the moment, not too bad, that said watching crows trying to fly into the wind slowly getting nowhere.


    Edit: picked up a fair bit now with the incoming shower


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,200 ✭✭✭ Gaoth Laidir


    Latest TAF just issued now for Kerry Airport is a downgrade for max winds (now max gust 35 kts versus 42 kts in 5 am TAF).

    Gust of 59 knots at Valentia


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,033 ✭✭✭ Oneiric 3


    Haven't looked at other models but the EMHI has another band of strong winds running uncomfortably close to the SW/South coast again tomorrow (late morn/early afternoon). A downgrade this morning but still the potential for gust up to 60 knots off shore. Last night it has gusts exceeding 70 knots just off the Cork coast. At present, concern would be low but a slight shift northwards could have a pretty big impact.
