No weather guru but heres my tuppence worth .

Similar Orange warnings for the Northern half of the country and yellow warnings for other counties probable. The Storm is well offshore to the NW but massive and powerfull wind and a huge windfield. This wind event looks more prolonged beginning early Monday morning 01.00 - 02.00 approx in the W and NW and continuing till late Monday night in the NW and N and slowly clearing those coasts into Tues am. Similar wind speeds perhaps from a similar track to Gertrude on this Island and Scotland looks to get a right battering again. Doesent look like a lot of rain at this stage on Monday. Temperatures starting off mild after Sun will decrease throughout the day and no doubt feel very cold in the wind.Those Shetland Webcams will come in handy again. Just my opinion, open to others

Has the storm been named yet?
I think it also needs orange status to be named. Don't be naming them premature, the other day in the weather the presenter said America's storm Jonas would probably become a named storm here, but it didn't.

Why is Storm Henry in the OP?

Storm Henry arrives on Monday
Then, into next week we have another deep low arriving onto the scene for Monday, and it's expected to take a very similar track to Gertrude, very close to the north of Scotland.

It would be the next storm after Gertrude, needing to be starting with "H", but naming is premature at this point.

I understand that the next named storm will be Henry (then Imogene I think), but as it hasn't been named officially I was wondering.

Netweather seem certain it will be named.
So this looks to be another overnight event?

To me it looks more powerfull then Gertrude judging by this run at this stage with possibly higher winds on the coasts of coastal counties in the W /NW / N. Winds look to be penetrating more inland with this storm.Looks like plenty of gusts over 100 kph and possibly getting up to 130+ kph om coasts. Massive sea swell.

And not even a statement by Met Eireann?
That's fairly poor.
