Strong Winds - Sunday/Monday Feb 14th/15th.

... with yellow warning level elsewhere. Applies to an interval stated as 1200-1600 hours although I would advise onset before that peak period. Coastal flooding also a risk with onshore southwest winds (SSW veering WSW).

This thread can also be used to discuss heavy rainfall potential for Sunday into Monday, guidance showing 30-40 mm potential in parts of south and west, peaking overnight hours for southwest counties.

Another interval of strong winds will develop on the west coast in particular around Monday afternoon and evening, no warnings issued for that yet,

A yellow warning is now in place for wind gusts 70-110 km/hr for Donegal, Mayo and Galway overnight (2100h - 0400h).

Wind on the east coast hasn't stopped all day, seems be getting stronger now again not sure if it's just the darkness making it seem stronger.

Roof creaking away again linked a video from last night, I'm sure tomorrow will be a lot worse so hopefully no damage!

All the models fairly aligned now. Kerry just might nudge up a bit stronger perhaps.

Just noting that the WRF is showing very strong winds over the country in from the coasts( not one to over do wind speeds ), strong high end yellow warning for counties not Orange warning I would think. Going through relatively quickly thankfully.

Belmullet 120- 125 km/h

The Atlantic is well and truly back in business, then again it never truly left us at any stage this winter, it's always been there nibbling away but it's influence is becoming more obvious with a resuming of normal service over the coming week.

Looks very windy tomorrow across all of the country, especially coastal areas.



Much milder too with temperatures into the low teens.



Could be fairly windy again on Tuesday




Wind will be fairly noticeable in general over the next week, particularly tomorrow.

Could be fairly wet too in western coastal areas tomorrow but inland doesn't look too bad in terms of rainfall.

Ouch!

Wild enough already out here, and what is falling sideways against the windows sounds more solid than rain.

Video forecast done for the severe gales or possibly storm force winds for Galway and north west Sunday morning. Should be only a short period but its a vigorous area of low pressure which could have some damaging gusts and power outages.

I have had enough of strong winds. It’s already gusting to 50mph here.

Lights are flickering on and off here in North coastal Dublin - not too surprising though, we lose electricity if you sneeze near the power lines!

If there's snow left on hills in Connemara, heavy bursts of rain overnight and the milder air mass will quickly melt that, small streams in that region may flood late overnight. The coastal flooding alert is of course related to high tides but in some places it can back up the estuaries of the streams which makes flooding more of a risk.

ECM 18Z stronger than the previous run, brings the stronger winds further inland, very tight gradient and closer to the coast on this run.

ARPEGE a bit stronger by the coasts on the run especially the W, winds go through quickly though.
