Storm Approaching The Northwest

Listening too Met Eireann and Evelyn said a powerful Atlantic storm will hit tomorrow, she said warnings are likely to be upgraded to red, think we should have a new storm thread

Has there been an upgrade to this storm???, watching the forecast there,it seems to be a powerful storm with the potential for an upgrade to red alert status later.

How come this place hasn't been hopping all week if there's a storm coming?

Had a text in the last half hour from my brother who is in Clifden overnight, saying the weather's wild. He has been there before.

Well it doesn't look like being too severe. I think it's tracking a little bit too far north to have much impact away from the northwest coast, which is well used to strong gales every winter.

The could be some big thundery downpours at times though, that could make it more interesting.

Does he know you're into "weather"? I ask as I think he's pulling yer plonker.

I just went upstairs and opened the velux window. There's a breeze out but it's nothing. No chimney noise, no rain at that moment.

All quiet on the Western front at the moment.
