Severe Winds this Evening/Overnight gusting to 130km/hr in parts

I think today's system needs highlighting, seems to have steadily increased in intensity in successive runs with a reasonably tight core to the south of the centre, what is concerning or interesting about this system is the core of very high winds is set to make a direct landfall over Ireland and not must brush the northwest coast like usual.

So latest NAE showing very tight gradient over Ireland this evening/overnight.





GFS wind @ 925hPa showing few 70knot barbs.



So this system likely to affect a wider swathe of the country than Mondays and i suppose what i am underlining is the greater Dublin region is also at risk later tonight.

I would suggest gusts from 60-70 knots are likely today/tonight.

That could get quite violent in areas unused to it, along with instability there could be some spectacular conditions in the early hours tomorrow

getting sick of this wind already, never really been a fan of wind, seems like it's been extremely windy now for the past 4 days without dying down.

Definitely picked up here in the last 10 mins. Regular gusts now 50km/h. Max Gust 61km/h this morning but feel that will be easily beaten later.
