One thing that might reduce the damage is air temps are a lot higher now than in winter, cold air is a lot denser and heavier/damaging than warm air.
So while it may be windy it may not be as damaging as colder winter storms.

Well if I remember correctly, didn't he downplay Storm Emma too? Love the Eagle but he has had some questionable forecasts on radio.

Synoptically, Hannah looks similar to this low on 23 April 1947 which brought violent storm force winds to Ireland.

Shannon Airport had a max gust of 165 km/h and a max 10-minute mean wind speed of 109 km/h on this day, the Irish records for April back to 1942.

The local media down here in Cork seem to be taking it very seriously, saying not to travel unless absolutely neccessary.

I'm going from Macroom to city tomorrow for the night & just trying to ensure everything is tied down this evening. It's going to pack a punch for sure.

Icon and gfs are both slight upgrades.
There's a chance the southwest will go red later
Certainly a high category orange for here

Dumb question but how come this storm is so dangerous when it doesn't have particularly low pressure at its centre? Obviously I see how tight the isobars are but isn't very low pressure the first thing you need for a big storm?

Arome coming into range and not too far off ICON, it has some very nasty gusts along Clare coast!

AROME coming into view. Limited zoom available for Ireland but showing widespread 130 km/h gusts for Kerry , higher on coast possible, only an amateur guess but has the look of a jet streak in the winds when they back to the NW ?

When the Winds back to the NW looks the strongest overland especially that area roughly in a line from Kilrush to Cork.

if 130km gusts are forecast widely we must be near a red warning, no? If so, that means employers might need to look at sending people home early, etc?

They will wait for overnight models before issuing a red i’d say. At least the schools won’t be open anyway.

Normally these storms get reduced in intensity closer the time. Hannah seems to be going the other way.
