Strong winds Sunday evening/night, Oct 5/6th

The latest run of the GFS is out, and is showing a period of strong southerly winds crossing the country Sunday evening and overnight into the early hours of Monday.

The model is showing inland gusts up to around 90 km/h widely with 100-110 km/h gusts in places. These are not particularly strong winds for coastal regions, but strong for inland areas and if the model were to verify, would be enough to bring down some trees and tree limbs in places at this time of year.

Gusts :



The model is showing inland mean winds reaching gale force in places.



06Z EURO4 shows strong gales to storm force winds on southern and eastern coasts though not quite as strong inland as on the GFS.




So not very severe, but the first windy spell of the autumn/winter with a chance of some strong inland winds, so worth keeping an eye on.

Keep in mind it could turn out to just be a wet and windy night and not as strong as the models are showing.

Within range of the 2km version of the GFS through the WRF NMM.

Still showing gusts up to around 50 knots inland, higher on southwest, south and east coasts.

There are a coupler of elections going on around the country, looks like this could be enough to weak havoc with elections posters? They are taken place in Roscommon / Leitrim and Dublin.

I seen one yesterday in Donegal (from the last election that is)
Hopefully the wind will take it down for the lazy politician that put it up!

Why are these storms always at night? Seriously. Is there actually a reason why I wonder or just pure coincidence?

As it is the first high wind event of the season will definitely be noticeable.

With tree's mostly in full leaf these 100k gusts could cause damage.

And wind lined up nicely for exposed Dublin coasts.

Dl harbour could get a 60kt gust. Quite a shock to the system.
