Storm Imogen - Feb 07/08-Strong Winds/High Seas for Southern Areas

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

met eireann not really picking up on the storm at the moment. Lots of windy weather mentioned over the next 48hrs but nothing unusual, getting up to gale force on exposed coasts but no mention of strong/severe gales. Time will tell if Imogen brings anything nasty our way.

I'm surprised Waterford is not included in the Orange Warning, just Yellow for now. Think this will have more of an impact for us down here than most of the other named storms this season mainly due to its more southerly track. Should be an interesting Monday morning

So the exact track of the storm is still uncertain so if this storms track moves north it could also indicate even stronger winds than what is shown now as these storms tend to go more north when they are stronger one to watch could be bad enough if that happens...
