Today isn't Dennis. It's a completely separate system.

What a fascinating mess the Atlantic is right now. Unprecedented to have so many deep Low Pressure systems at one time.
On this mornings output ECM showing higher gusts than GFS all weekend.
ECM has been trending to overcook these storms recently so will be interesting to see if the GFS is more accurate again. Met Eireann should come out with warnings later. Heavy rain and flooding may be more of an issue with Storm Dennis.

It looks similar to last weekend so I'd expect

Orange Warning for Atlantic at least

Yellow warning rainfall 20mm to 40mm

Maybe 50 to 60mm in some location

Wev had 82mm since last Friday and rivers in rural Sligo are burst

Urban one near the top of wall at high tides

One theory I've been following is that an increase in charged particles entering our atmosphere will lead to lower lows and higher highs caused by increased current flows in the global electric circuit. The increase being attributed to a weakening of the earths own magnetic field thus allowing in more charged particles from the sun and cosmic radiation from further afield.

Was thinking that myself.

Rain and flooding maybe more of a factor than the wind in that

Flooding will have to be a factor. Ground is saturated already. Rivers still quite high, trees coming down will surely be an issue also.

Heading towards Dunmore East last night and field near Jaybees had quite a bit of water in it. Noticed the last few days when it does rain it pools a lot more and it's taking longer for the water to drain. Anyone on flood plains would want to think about putting up some defenses if due another deluge.

Remembering the flooding from storm frank near here
