Truly spectacularly appalling ! As met.ie foretold and then some. The din is deafening. The ocean not as high just now but we have spring tides soon.
Roaring and battering.

There are no fields or mountains.

Just.. WOW! I have spent half an hour on the phone rearranging deliveries etc.

No ferries today; with gusts up to 100 k forecast.. of course not.

There looks to be a lull tomorrow so shopping trip then.

Before the next assault?

The forecast according to Graces7! Focussing on the effects of the weather.

Yes charts are evolving every run, the most severe winds from the earlier runs ( even from yesterday ) not showing as widespread stormy conditions atm yet still very windy in places especially coasts but I still wouldn't see todays charts as anywhere as final. This is so fast moving that anything could happen, could easily throw a depression straight at us with very strong winds at the last moment. Certainly a challenging one for forecasting, keeping it very generalized with so much change in the charts. No shortage of rain driving up the totals. Exact track of the heaviest rains changing also but in general the S, SW , W and NW getting the highest totals.

Weather Advisory for Ireland

Very unsettled weather will occur over the Halloween weekend as a series of vigorous Atlantic weather systems pass close to Ireland.

Spells of heavy rain will lead to surface and river flooding.

Very windy/stormy at times with some severe and damaging gusts possible.

Some coastal flooding possible also due to the combination of low pressure, high tides and onshore winds.

Very high seas.

Please consult your county warnings from Met Éireann on a day by day basis https://www.met.ie/warnings/today

Valid: 21:03 Friday 30/10/2020 to 18:00 Monday 02/11/2020

Certainly not as bad as outlier chart they showed after news at 9. It will likely be yellow with an odd chance of 115kph along coasts in South and West.

How likely is the current Met Eireann forecast for a dry night on Saturday in Dublin to stick? About the one thing I'm looking forward to about Halloween this year is my usual wander around Dun Laoghaire to watch all the back garden fireworks displays people do, the last two (I think?) years in a row have had horrendous weather on Halloween night and it seems like this year, despite the weekend in general being forecast to be a mess, the night itself might actually be dry

I hate stormy weather, but this year on Halloween I hope it buckets down all night with huge gales.

I feel for the young kids who love this time of year and Covid writing it off. But since early September, it has been aggressive displays from teenagers with bangers and fireworks, and our dogs not able to handle these. It seems to being out the antisocial element that - hopefully - the bad weather will deter

Looks like it's going to lul somewhat between saturday afternoon and saturday night. It's a small window but hopefully it won't deter many from having a good night.


Have some fireworks and a little campfire planned.

What you actually wanted was for it to bucket and gale from September to October every day.

The one night of the year should be the only night for fireworks, and a fun night to enjoy and not be miserable wishing such things.

Who wished miserable on anybody? I certainly didn't - I want the antisocial element curbed which have been making the lives of many here MISERABLE with bangers, rockets and stupid carryon. As I said, I feel for the young kids who look forward to it.

ECM back looking stormy around the coasts on Saturday and some very windy overland. But the charts have been chopping and changing a lot as they try to grapple with the energy coming our way over the Halloween weekend into Monday. Would need to see more consistent charts and other models to come into some alignment to make any sort of a call, they are all over the place atm. ICON's last run is similar now to the ECM, ARPEGE was showing it stormy the previous run but gone off on another tangent, does show it very windy later Sat night into Sun. GFS showing it windy Sat night into Sun but otherwise not as strong as the Euro models.
