ECM along with the rest of the models slight shift W with the track keeping the strongest winds out over the sea and just skimming the coasts.. Yellow warnings look set to remain as of now I reckon. The track looks fairly set .

Yep, 0Z HIRLAM keeps the strongest winds a bit further West than the previous run.

Will it get named now since it has gone orange. Or is it not affecting enough counties?

BBC NI day it won’t be named! I defended Met Éireann when Fionn was named as they were simply following the criteria but this makes a mockery of the system!

How does it make a mockery of the system?

Because the criteria was that any Orange Weather Warnings means the event is given a name.

I mean Fionn wasn’t even a proper low but it reached Orange criteria so was named. I could see why Liam Dutton and others thought that was silly but I defended Met Eireann as that is the system in place.

This goes against that which means no consistency and will only further confuse people.

Just move to impact based system same as UK and name orange events, then people will be able to have more confidence in the system.

Doesn't deserve a name looking at their Harmonie model on Twitter.
Impact based system looks the way forward alright as only the very Norh West looks the windiest.
From midnight to 4am Friday.

The orange warning reads strangely, it's as if it's not a real one. Only valid for coastal and upland areas it seems, but would people living in these locations not expect harsher weather anyway?

It appears the system may not actually be named.
