Wind strong here in Cork City, Roches point at 42kts at the 7pm update and Cork Airport at 37 and rising. Heavy drizzle too with the odd burst of heavy showers. I believe there are no warnings in effect today besides a rain one right?

Very much in the warm sector now here near Tralee at 10.7C , between the warm front that passed over and the oncoming cold front.

Some nice line features on the back edge of the front .

3.6mm so far and getting windy gusting up around 60 km/h

What's the odds that the winds this evening will be worse than anything tomorrow?

There's nothing on paddy power so I'm not sure.


What location are you?

Latest ECM 12Z from 12.00 Tues , strong winds along the W coastal areas and into the NW and N. Windy across the country on Weds slow to ease.

Could have winds gusting to around 120 km/h in coastal areas in the W , NW and N for around 12 hrs and slowly easing.

Not too sure if the EURO 4 over ding it a bit. Met office did say they expect gusts between 50 and 60 mph overland in the North and maybe up to 80 mph along coasts. Good test to see how the model does.

The EURO 4 would put Kerry and Clare gusting to 120 km/h on coasts for a time early evening Tues ? Probably Galway coasts also more so later in the evening.

Anyone else getting the feeling that people in general might be in for a surprise on this one. Quiet in here even.

In general I think the models at the moment just showing it might reach 130 km/h or thereabouts in coastal fringes only , or of course over high ground .IMO in general I think showing gusts to 120 km/h in coastal areas, up to 110 km/h more inland . That doesn't take away from the fact that it will be a rough spell in the Orange warning areas.
