Alright mate was just a question. I don't scan this forum so I don't know what questions are asked regularly.

If you don't want to engage then don't or even put me on ignore.

Bit of a difference between going to the pub and flying. If taking the piss out of someone on an internet forum makes you feel like a big man then good for you I guess.

Looks like it wasn't felt where you are but it was felt elsewhere.

Meteorologists's Commentary . Storm Dennis – Saturday 15th to Monday 17th 

Storm Dennis is forecast to track to the north of Ireland and the UK over the weekend. It will likely bring periods of very wet and windy weather, with some stormy conditions possible, particularly later Sunday into Monday.

 

The Meteorological Situation:

Cold air is forecast to exit Canada and enter the North Atlantic Ocean over the next few days, creating a sharp temperature gradient in the atmosphere. This will result in an intensification of the jet stream, which will direct low pressure systems towards Ireland.

Gales are likely in coastal areas on Saturday with fresh to strong winds inland. Winds could increase further on Sunday, possibly becoming stormy, particularly along western coasts. It will be very gusty too over the weekend, with some damaging gusts possible.

 

Flooding issues

We are entering into a period of transition between Spring (High) Tides and Neap (Low) Tides. This means there will not be a large variation between high and low tides. The combination of high seas and strong winds or perhaps stormy conditions, may increase the possibility of coastal flooding especially along western and southern coasts due to wave transformation.

Storm Dennis may also bring very wet conditions with localised flooding possible. River levels are elevated across much of the midlands so any heavy rainfall would cause issues here.

 

Storm Naming

Storm Dennis is the fourth named storm of the season. The naming convention now also includes the Dutch meteorological service, KNMI as well as our existing partner UKMO. Storms are named to aid the communication of approaching severe weather, helping the public to be better placed to keep themselves, their property and businesses safe.

Keep up to date

As forecast confidence improves over the coming days Met Éireann will issue warnings as required. Please check for updates

Not related to Dennis but that's one humdinger of a low coming off New Foundland today. 987 hPa at 12Z today, 943 hPa by 12Z tomorrow, a drop of 43 hPa in 24 hours.

ECM looking the strongest for winds on Sunday at this stage . Currently strongest winds in coastal counties and strongest along the coasts.

It's a complex beast . The system seems to be more like a number of areas of LP being absorbed to form one large storm . The whole mass does a pirouette in the Atlantic near Iceland before swinging in towards the North of Scotland on Sunday. Showing getting down to an incredibly deep 921 hPa on Sat and charts showing 950 hPa when it is off the NW on Sunday evening. Looks to produce a few wave depressions on it's journey so a lot of uncertainty as to what comes in close to us or not. It is probably better viewed as a collection of deep areas of LP maybe ?
Gerry Murphy mentioning Sunday keeping an eye on as could be stormy. Much rainfall in the lead up to this also and looking very wet over the weekend, areas quite saturated and standing weather in fields so some flooding in places probably an issue over the weekend and into Monday. His comments would tally with the ECM charts, GFS whilst strong not showing stormy yet.

Saturday quite windy and wet in it's own right, very windy along coasts and quite windy blustery during the frontal passage over the country.

Sunday looks to be very cold day with sleety wintry showers possible.










Rough idea of accumulated rain up to Monday am.

Latest ECM for Sunday. Seems to be the hint of a secondary feature tightening up the isobars a bit over Ireland.
