Overnight the ECM has increased its wind speeds again, track slightly more N I would think . Fast moving Storm filling as it goes but very powerful nevertheless.

Very close to a red warning for kerry . Parts of Cork in red warning territory also.

As bad a storm I have seen for the SW in a long time. This could be as bad as Darwin in the SW especially Kerry.

For Kerry looks like widespread gusting to 120 km/h , gusting to 130 km/h in coastal areas and higher ground and possibly gusting 140 km/h on exposed parts of the coast.At this stage would be expecting ECM to at least hold these speeds as they have been rising over the last few runs.

Cork looks a bit less but widespread gusting to 100km/h and up to 120 km/h in parts for a time. Coasts in W Cork up to 130 km/h and probably up to about 110 km/h along the rest of the coast with a few exposed parts gusting perhaps to 120 km/h.

Official warnings haven’t been issued yet. I reckon Orange for Cork and Kerry and yellow for the rest of Munster plus Co. Wexford.

ARPEGE 0Z slightly further N than the ECM bringing very strong winds into parts of Clare also and stronger winds in general across the Southern half of the country. It is showing large parts of Kerry gusting to 130 km/h and coastal fringes to 140 km/h.

I'm supposed to be flying out from Shannon tomorrow night around 9pm, I wonder if this will affect flights and lead to cancellations?

ICON 6Z showing quite similar track to the ECM but higher wind speeds in general over a wider area. Prone to overdoing it a bit but will the ECM increase the wind speeds again ?

Do they continue to name storms this far into Spring??
Well there was Storm Hector in mid-June last year.

This could cause a lot of damage to trees which have recently come into leaf, driving on rural roads would be unwise.

Subscribing to the thread, had planned to cycle Galway-Drogheda leaving Galway around 7am Saturday morning. Not sure if a good idea if cross-wind gusts to "110 to 130 km/h". Looks like it would be pretty cold as well?...

People in the west and south should prepare and have powerbanks charged, phones/tablets/laptops charged before the starm comes in case of power outages. Move loose things outdoors that could blow away indoors or have them tied down. Just normal preparation.
Basically get everything that needs done that can be completed done so when the storm comes, one can relax more from having prepared.
Remember if there is a storm raging - don't take unnecessary journeys - it led to people dying in previous big storms, or being in a hurry to cut fallen trees if it is still windy, we lost people from that too.
Be patient and all will be ok. Life is short enough, so don't make it shorter.

A bit of common sense with preparation and patience and dare I say it, it will all blow over.
