Has this system been officially declared a named storm yet? BBC TV guy this morning said it probably wouldn't get that honour.
Maybe they're raising the bar so as not to run out of names before the season is through

ECM shows gusts close to 130 km/h at times but just on the exposed coast.



Anything stronger than that looks unlikely.

Worst gales I ever experienced were when I lived on an Outer Northern Orkney island. One was gusts of up to 124 MILES an hour and I was feeding my stock in that, clinging to washing poles. You felt as if the skin was being flayed off your face and the huge rocks that got thrown up on the shore... a neighbours hen house literally took off. Whenever there is a gale it reminds me. I dread them frankly but we manage..

Early afternoon, before around 2:30pm I doubt there should be any problems. After that you never know.

12Z GFS shows a more southerly secondary depression following on early on Christmas Eve which would bring a second round of strong winds.
