    Odd to go straight to a warning instead of an advisory this far out?

    Odd to go straight to a warning instead if an advisory this far out?

    Met Eireann must be feeling very confident about this one. I wasn't expecting any sort of warning till tomorrow.


  • Registered Users Posts: 29,347 ✭✭✭✭ NIMAN


    It would be nice to get a week without a storm, wouldn't it?

    Pre-empting the whinge merchants who are never satisfied with enough notice. Including those who still leave their vehicles on the Salthill prom.

    Unbelievable. Met Eireann issuing these coloured warnings must be a boon for these people.. and their advertisers.

    It's only really the extreme northwest of Spain that will see anything of any severity on Saturday, and even at that, only up to 100-110 km/h in a small area. Seems a little ott to name it and give orange warnings for a cold front passing through.

    More of interest will be in our neck of the woods.

    Is it possible that more counties could be added to the orange warning?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,355 ✭✭✭ easypazz


    It will be another non event. I am calling it now.

    Should be storm Seoirse not flippin Jorge
    Its our storm


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,198 ✭✭✭✭ M.T. Cranium


    About the Spanish concern, maybe being a weekend in Lent there would be more than a few people planning to go on that famous walking trail ? Is it called Compostela? Perhaps someone in the know on that could enlighten us. By northwest Spain standards it is going to be quite cold with this strong wind, but as stated by GL they get a lot of that being in that exposed position.

    I was really getting ready for the Ellen angle, now this. After Humberto I suppose the law of averages means this will be Big Wind 2.0.

    (please tabloids I am sort of having a laff there, but there are a lot of isobars on the 06z GFS, enough for everyone to have their own personal one.)

    Skipping over letters there too we should be on F not J


  • Registered Users Posts: 550 ✭✭✭ R.F.


    I have no doubt someone has already answered. But I was looking at storm names the other day. And J was meant to be Storm Jan.

    And another thing! What the heck happened to Storm Ellen, Gerda, Francis and Hugh?


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,475 ✭✭✭✭ RobbingBandit


    Ellen was last weekend


  • Registered Users Posts: 550 ✭✭✭ R.F.

    I think weather has been so awful recently they have all merged into one for me.

    The Spanish and Portuguese use a different list than us, The UK, Netherlands and Denmark.

    I'm not so sure about this being overhyped, all models are agreeing on 110 + gusts for North Clare on Saturday from what I see. ICON has the usual overestimation but the rest of them are pretty consistent.

    Magicseaweed is predicting 22ft waves in Lahinch on Saturday.
    Probably 16 would be more realistic.

    Although at high tide Black Head could be a spectacular show of a swell hitting hard.

    I didn't mean it was hyped for us, only Spain.
