Bear in mind that while I provide the pretty colours I can't say anything about intensity !

There is a possibility of stormy conditions toward the end of the week but there is also the possibility of nothing. If the intense low moves a few miles further North there will just be a damp breezy day

With wind events you often have to wait until a day or 2 before to be sure

From Met Eireann @ 1533.Thursday: A very windy day with strong to gale force southerly winds possibly reaching storm force in parts of the west and north.They also forecast Rain and Hail showers for Connaught/Ulster on Friday with Sleet on high ground with a risk of Thunderstorm Activity.

The HiRLAM has sustained hurricane force winds of 65 knots on the southern flank of this cyclonic bomb system Thursday evening, and it's still deepening to sub-960 hPa. A potent little beast, but not much threat to us. The Faroes might get a fair old breeze though!

Thursday, 18UTC


The Icelandic HiRLAM has it at around 950 hPa 6 hours later.


There should be some very strong gusty winds associated with the cold front though as it crosses Ireland late Thursday, with gusts over 100 km/h possible.

MET ÉIREANN

22 November 2011 20:29


Outlook

Wednesday night will stay mostly dry over Leinster and Muster but further rain will affect the north and northwest. It will be rather mild with lowest temperatures of 8 to 11 degrees in fresh southerly breeze. The southerly winds will strengthen further on Thursday and it will become extremely windy with heavy rain in west, which will spread eastwards later. Top temperatures 11 to 13 degrees. Heavy rain will move eastwards on Thursday night and clear by Friday morning and winds veer westerly and moderate. There will be good sunny spells on Friday, but it will be much cooler in freshening westerly winds. There will be scattered showers, these heavy and with the risk of thund and hail in the west and north. Becoming cloudy and milder again on Saturday in strengthening southwesterly winds. Outbreaks of rain on Saturday will clear later eastwards on Sunday with some sunny spells developing.

There will proabably be stormier conditions on Saturday/Sunday.

This has tracked further south from the last run.

Icelandic HiRLAM has it attaining a low pressure of 943 hPa between Faroes and norway early Friday, and shows 70 knot sustained winds near the Faroes tomorrow night, with 50 knots plus over extreme northwestern Scotland.



This is a very potent storm, an has actually formed from the remnants of the tropical system that was meandering south of the Azores late last week. There was a huge pool of very high theta-e that got caught under the right rear quadrant of a strong jet over the past day, and that is now set to cause explosive deepening of 35 hPa over the a 24 hour period as the low passes well to our northwest.
