Redbull Storm Chase are up with us at the moment in Magheroarty. 8 of the best windsurfers in the world are here to compete in that storm!! They were out yesterday in the hail and wind. Class to watch!

In fairness I don’t usually ask silly questions like that but he is asking me because he knows I have an interest in weather and might be able to advise him. He has a high sided van. I’ve said morning and get back by 2. Just wanted to check as it’s quiet here still.


But thanks for your helpful eye roll.

I saw that there was a general call on Twitter for surfing dudes from abroad to make it to the west coast to experience surfing a coastal storm of the century.

I was up In Clare yesterday and at between Doolin and Fanore the conditions were absolutely wild and impossible to walk into the wind onshore. The driving hail and freezing rain made visibility almost zero at times

I do hope these guys know just how violent and lethal the Irish Atlantic in winter can be tbh.

Thankfully they are in nice & early.
Can't believe how quiet things are here. The few people I know living in the orange warning areas had no idea a storm was coming until I mentioned it, hopefully people won't get caught off guard. This is definitely a biggie.

Kinda on this topic, I downloaded the met eireann app last week with the hope it would give me push notifications of weather alerts. It doesn't. Anyone know an app that does? We have to bring our rabbit hutches indoors for a big storm, and being in Donegal this one could be big.

i had been highlighting this potential storm in the up to 120 hrs thread.it was suggested i was viewing outdated
output,the general view was that it was trending away northwards.

If you see Meteorite post wind charts you can rest assured theres a storm a brewing.
His analysis is great.

i think everyones up to speed now though.
