    YELLOW WIND WARNING

    Status Yellow - Wind warning for Ireland

    Strong and gusty southwest winds will veer westerly early this afternoon with some severe and damaging gusts; heavy squally spells of rain continuing too.

    Valid: 07:00 Tuesday 10/12/2019 to 16:00 Tuesday 10/12/2019

    Issued: 07:00 Tuesday 10/12/2019
    ________________________________________
    Some squally bands of rain crossing the country between now and this afternoon likely to give some very strong winds.

    Met Eireann mention ‘Severe and Damaging Gusts’ words that I would only associate with an orange Level warning.

    If a squall line forms in the clearance localised severe gusts could result from weakened trees buffetted by Atiyah

    Brutal day in Galway city today. Absolutely miserable outside.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,444 ✭✭✭ pad199207


    ‘Buffeted’ must be the word de-jour. very strong winds in Kildare


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 4,431 ✭✭✭ Mortelaro


    53kmh gusting 72kmh South West in Arklow at the moment
    Howling
    But sure we're all getting used to the howling by now
    At least we had a break yesterday

    Just saw an ATR72 land from the east at Cork Airport in the last few mins- 10/10 there. that was after they deiced against a northern approach.

    Way worse in Galway today than Sunday absolutely lashing rain with very strong winds, my station is showing wind 40 to 55 mph with a recent gust to 59mph, did not reach that on Sunday in an Orange warning if the tide was in Salthill would be seeing waves coming over the prom.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,444 ✭✭✭ pad199207


    Much worse than Atiyah here now. Building materials blowing down the road


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 3,316 ✭✭✭ nthclare


    Lahinch is getting battered with wind and swell, high tides at 4ish so it'll be getting a pounding around then.
    8ft swell at the moment, so as the tide rises these waves could generate more size as they roll over the reefs


  • Registered Users Posts: 30,466 ✭✭✭✭ Graces7


    A brief but definite pause in the wind here. And in the rain for a few minutes.. brief indeed but welcome

    Be assured all is well here. Stocked up with food and fuel and plenty of knitting work to keep me busy. I could last literally weeks like this. All planned.

    In that brief lull, managed to get outside and even pick a few marigolds .

    Drumming down again now, and the ground and paths outside are seriously waterlogged and puddled . Safe on the concrete path.

    Cat is sitting by the gate and thought I was going to take him a walk, poor lad

    Miserable is the best word I would use today.

    Heavy drizzle coming sideways.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,502 ✭✭✭✭ Xenji


    A miserable day in Castlebar, a max gust of 80 km/hr and over 15mm of rain so far.

    Those living along the west coast might get to see the odd flash later on tonight, and more particularly, overnight, as showery troughs move in off the Atlantic:

    Risk would be pretty low however but maybe one or two spots might see something.. maybe.

    Horrible day in Enniscorthy - strong, gusty wind and bucketing down all morning.

    A very narrow band of intense rain and strong winds crossing the country.

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,444 ✭✭✭ pad199207
