Does't look like much of a threat on the latest GFS, well to the northwest, but still strong enough for western coastlines on the HIRLAM which explains the Orange warning from Met Eireann.



Mean winds on HIRLAM

You might want to amend title to say Thursday 12th, not 13th. If it were slated for Friday 13th then I'd be more worried!

Interesting to see how 12zs go, as 6z GFS went totally against trend.

This storm has been christened Abigail by Met Eireann and the British Met Office. Mods can you incorporate the name of the storm into the thread title?

12Z GFS slipped south a little, but still keeps the low quite far off shore, only showing 100 km/h gusts grazing the coasts.
The higher resolution models probably have a better take on it at this stage.

This morning's GSM run has an interesting feature following on from Abigail on Friday morning with a sharp shortwave feature bringing even stronger winds to the west coast for a short time.



I am not sure about the GFS but the ECM has picked on this potential wave but does not make much of it, having it much further north and much weaker.
