    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.

    Heavy persistent rain has now set in here in Castlebar.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,665 ✭✭✭✭ JCX BXC


    Strange sudden increase in winds here in West Clare!


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,392 ✭✭✭ Oscar Bravo


    Seriously heavy rain here in Castlebar. Fields well flooded now with side roads full of water


  • Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators Posts: 10,459 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Meteorite58


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

    Could be Status Orange in some areas. Saturday Night revelers could be caught off guard. Glad i got my few jars in last night!

    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 :eek:

    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.

    Winds down to 10 knots and skies cleared here in West Clare, bizzare! Temperature also tumbling.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,653 ✭✭✭✭ ninebeanrows


    Looking very windy indeed- stay safe this evening folks. All the best.


  • Registered Users Posts: 579 Soccarboy11


    just had a strong gust here in Cork City, drizzling a lot too.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,454 ✭✭✭ Storm 10


    Big drop in the wind in Galway with the clearance

    That level sounds pretty accurate. Flash floods in Achill over the course of an hour's rain according to family . Torrential nearing ark territory :-) .. And they know rain around there.

    Expect a brief spell of severe wind gusts in the Dublin-Kildare-Meath region around 8:00 p.m. lasting 1-2 hours. Possible peak gusts 110 km/hr, veering WSW to NW.

    Yep. Worse here now that any of those named ones they fussed over.

    The developing Low passing over the country quickly. So far from what I can see hasn't produced winds out of the ordinary.

    Where did it get the strong gust at Belmullet? The highest I make it for there is 27 knots.
