    I didn't bother clicking the link, given its the daily star I assume it talking about an approaching WEATHER BOMB!!!!

    This is the most recent NHC chart re Rina:


    Non event.

    God that article is really poor, "SNOW BEFORE STORM" "FREEZING ARTIC WINDS".

    Yes because snow on the top of mountains, the top ten of which excess 1200m, is exceptional somehow smh.

    Rina looked to be falling apart 2 nights ago, now forecast to get to 19W as an extratropical storm of around 40kts. Western Donegal is at around 9W, Mayo 11W.

    MUCH less powerful than Ophelia, although it would potentially be an orange warning for Donegal/Sligo if it tracked exactly as forecast and maintained strength for an additional 24hrs.

    Edit: All the models seem to show a non event for us, mind.

    Will the daily star publish an apology for printing absolute nonsense?

    Will the daily star publish an apology for printing absolute nonsense?

    Sure wouldn't that call into question their very existence then? Weather sells unfortunately and the more dramatic the better!
    Regardless if it's actual weather or not.
