Storm Imogen is likely to be named in the next 24 hours as a deep Atlantic storm approaches from the Atlantic.
A secondary low pressure with a tight gradient will brush into northern parts of the country early Sunday giving localised gusts to 110km/hr in the north-west.
Then the focus move to 'Imogen' which will already be a mature storm in the Atlantic. This storm looks set to be severest in the south, although there is a little disagreement with regards to its exact track.
Parts of Munster will be impacted by inland gusts to 100-110km/hr with coastal fringes likely to see some gusts of 120-130km/hr.
The warning timeframe would begin circa 2100 Sunday through until 2100 Monday with the peak winds in the south from 0600-1200 Monday.
The extent of these strong winds could push further north in the next few model runs as a trend to pull the stronger winds further north has occurred in the last few model runs.
WRF forecast wind-speeds for 6am Monday
