The latest 48hr OPC chart (below) has it at 916 hPa with another low of 928 hPa chasing it. Some beast, and there's a strong possibility that the two lows will merge. A 'perfect storm' ? ...

Wev had very high tides in Sligo the past 3 days with overtopping

However Spring tides abating this weekend but Dennis will bring enormous swell to Salthill Strandhill and Lahinch for example

ECM very windy across the country during the frontal passage on Saturday, and signs that the S and SE could be very windy again Sat evening for a time.

Sunday looking very windy along Atlantic coastal counties and blustery across the country and very windy across Northern counties later. Bit of a spread in timing and strength of winds in the models yet.

Very wet day Sat into Sun. Heavy showers and cold on Sunday into Monday with some more prolonged spells, some showers wintry.

Very big seas out in the Atlantic the next few days.

All this hype with named storms has caused the connacht schools cross country races scheduled for Saturday in Loughrea to be cancelled. If you ask me it is very early to be calling this.

Expect plenty more events to be called off by the end of the weekend. Better safe than sorry.

Looks like some very complex and messy evolution over the next 48 hours with multiple centres each with very low central pressure, should make for some interesting satellite pics!

So what happens if they go ahead and a kid gets hit on the head by a falling branch or something flying around the place would you take the responsibility in this day and age of claims they are correct.

This month so far must rank as one of the lowest average pressures over the Atlantic basin. I'd like to see the anomaly up to now.

Language, there Timothy, sorry, eh... Tomer.
Words like 'bomb' should be avoided these days esp.if you want to be taken seriously. It is however shaping up to be a threatening scenario, especially for shipping. Watching the models - we'll know more in another 24-36 hrs. Interesting will be how the lows will interact and where exactly Dennis will march after peaking.

The event was scheduled for tomorrow, Saturday. They have all day today to make a decision. Again the warnings and further forecasts are due today so we will wait and see what conditions will actually be like. What if...

There is Dennis at 6 am this morning, 984 hPa southeast of New Foundland. By midday tomorrow it will be 924 hPa south of Iceland, with a messy and potent frontal system crossing Ireland. A filthy day in store tomorrow.
