Met Office UK - Yellow Alert for Winds on Sunday, Aug 17th ?

Where did this come from? It's completely out of the blue and no mention in any of the other threads...

Do you think all users are from the Republic of Ireland you moron?

There is plenty if active users in Northern Ireland.

Also the winds are going to be in Donegal as well.

Not surprised in the least there is no mention of strong winds, weather predicting in Ireland seems to be generally pretty awful.

Ferries cancelled, trees blown over, torrential rain, gale force winds - I think this thread was needed. Although I didn't go into details Met Office UK where completely right about this one.

A man from Northern Ireland dies after falling from a cliff into the sea at Fanad Head, County Donegal. Happened at 3pm today. Unsure at this moment if high winds played a part.

Conditions yesterday at Fanad Lighthouse played a part in hindering rescue operations.

"Conditions were very rough at the time," said Joe Joyce, of the RNLI Swilly team.

"There was a force eight gale and seas were very high.
