I will leave the graphics for later posters, just wanted to start a discussion thread on the risk for strong westerly winds across Munster on Wednesday late morning, afternoon, evening and overnight lasting through parts of Thursday and spreading further east. The northern limit for 80 km/hr gusts appears to be Galway to Dublin on present indications, and gusts to 110 km/hr are possible in exposed coastal locations around the southwest coasts, 100 km/hr around the southeast.
This wind event will develop after a rainfall of about 15-25 mm spreading north with slowly deepening low pressure that is expected to move up the west coast, possibly looping around before moving east across central and northern counties on Thursday (hence the cutoff for strong winds, the path of the low itself will be associated with much lesser wind speeds).
Also, an occluding front could bring gusty showers and the risk of a brief thunderstorm Wednesday morning to the inland south and east. Skies may briefly clear when this feature passes, to be followed by squally showers redeveloping in the strong westerly wrap-around circulation.
Locations such as west Kerry and south Cork will probably see the strongest gusts. Forecasts could change so this early indication may also change during the day as the system is in an early stage of development well off to the southwest at this point.
