A lot of the action is probably above the cloud deck inland for the time being, that will change once the occluding cold front pushes east and turns the gradient wind more westerly allowing the strong gusts on the Atlantic coast to start moving through the middle of the country, expect a gradual increase in wind speeds all day inland, but on the coast depends on positioning, some will have a couple of peaks around mid-day and late afternoon, further north there will be a lull when the low centre moves directly through north Connacht towards south Ulster. Anyone reading this near the north coast of Ulster will be in strong east-southeast winds for a time as the low makes that move.

There is a a good video on YouTube of the cuckoo storm of may 2020 "Gharbai'n na gcuach - cuckoo storm"
Think its filmed in Achill, but not %100.
Explains the gathering of the kelp and wrack that gets washed in.

There’s a trampoline balancing on a fence a few doors up. Rang the doorbell of the house but no answer. Just hoping they wake up soon and look out their back windows as I’ve got to head off shortly. Moved everything that could be in its path. I’d like to come back to intact patio doors though.

It’s wet and wild in South Galway for the last couple of hours now, pretty much as forecast. Not much left on the cherry blossom tree.

Awful waste of a day off it’s a pity it couldn’t have held off for another day.

Wild, wild morning here on the west cork coast. Very heavy rain since around 4am. Winds picked up massively and the trees are bending at times with all the leaves on them. Mad! Love a good storm though
