Strong Winds, Heavy Rain Wintry Weather : Sat 2nd to Mon 4th March 2019

Worth keeping an eye on how this Depression develops on Saturday. The Models in general have been showing it track up off the NW coast but on latest runs they have been bringing it closer to the coast and showing some strong winds , the GFS not too dissimilar to the ECM at this stage showing a swathe of strong winds across much of the country for a number of hours , showing the strongest winds atm in the W.

More than likely warnings will be issued .








Most tellingly is that the ECM 12Z tracks the centre closer to the coast on the latest run with strong winds gusting 100 to 110 kph inland in places .

Will see how this pans out one way or the other.

Some chance also for a second interval of strong winds in the southeast by late Sunday, this one could be rapidly developing just as it arrives in Munster. Less certain than Saturday's event.

ECM 12Z keeping the depression much further off the NW on the latest run keeping the strongest winds on the coasts and not as strong inland as earlier runs.

The other models getting more in line now. W, NW and N getting the strongest winds , looking like gusts of 110 to 120 kph on exposed coasts at this stage, up to about 100 kph in coastal areas and 80 to 90 more inland

Center of the depression now much further away to the NW on the latest ECM 12Z keeping the strongest winds offshore. Blustery overland and windy on the coasts for a time but nothing too severe looking at this stage. Other models following suit, ARPEGE similar.

Named storm Freya now by the UK met office
First I heard of it was the BBC forecast at 955am,so I was surprised that there was no discussion of it here
They actually had snow graphics on it for leinster and Scotland as well as strong winds but I presume the snow is sn error,I've not the time to look at detail now

"Danger to life", but only a yellow warning?

She said: "At the moment, a Met Office yellow warning is in place for strong winds across southwest England, through Wales, the Midlands into northern England.

"This will be ugraded to an amber warning over the next 24 hours or so as forecasters pin down where the strongest winds will be.

"Gusts of 55 to 65mph are likely, with the potential of 70 to 80mph gusts for coastal parts of Devon and Cornwall, as we as Irish Sea coasts of Wales and northwest England.
