Wet and Windy Friday-Saturday(14th-15th), Potential Flooding.

From Friday evening its looking to be very wet and windy along the West and south west Coasts. Winds will be southwesterly touching gale force at times, with gusts possibly up to 65mph ( storm force 10) at times , especially near coasts.

Rain amounts could lead to spot flooding in places , most at risk at this time would be low lying parts Galway, sligo , mayo and parts of Roscommon. Rain spreading to all areas later on.

As the storm moves more inland the winds will be dampened to an extent, but rain will still persist, heavy during Saturday morning in inland counties.
Below is Saturday's predictive run by MÉs 5 day chart.



And A Surface Pressure Chart For Friday

My guess for rainfall amounts at Mullingar to be 30-35mms of rain throughout friday night and saturday.

Seeing that im not so skilled at doing my own forecasts , all corrections and comments welcome .

I don't think rainfall will be as intense as forcasted. Weather Friday looks fine, with light/medium precip at night. Might get a bit heavier in the morning but I don't see 65mph gusts either. Another disappointing storm a brewing over the weekend

Anything that keeps the snow bunnies off this forum is good news...even if that event does not even look wet by west of Ireland standards.

Violent rainstorm just hit here in south Meath. The blue and yellow on the met radar just doesn't give any indication of the intensity of those showers.

Ooh sounds lovely.

Just as I wrote the other post it started storming like a mad thing here. (tech term ehem..) Huge gust of wind scared the bejeeebus outta me Mind you it didnt help that I was watching the solar flare from earlier , the one that looks like the Scream picture. Did you see it?
, its almost identical to that famous pic.
