Another potential wind-storm Thursday AM 4-1-18

Very mixed guidance for a potential small low feature to move across Ireland overnight and through tomorrow morning.

Perhaps now a good time to bookend the Storm Eleanor threat and move onto this?

Some guidance outlined below.

EURO4



ICON



HIRLAM




More to follow....

If the position remains the same there could be issues for Dublin as it coincides with the high tide of 4.5m at 1pm tomorrow.

ICON a little further north again.

It doesn't appear to be deepening rapidly as it crosses the country but does show steady enough deepening as it exits into the Irish Sea.

Evelyn Cusack on Mid west radio news said winds concentrated in the south west quadrant tonight but there was uncertainty over the track,also another small wind event possible tomorrow.

Not to be taken literally as GFS does not have the resolution even at 0.25 degree to display this type of system- but it has moved it north compared to it's previous run.

It's no wonder given the temperatures on the east coast of America,a low of -22 forecast for the Boston area Friday night.

The manky mild old north Atlantic doesn't like this pouring out over it at all,at all.

the isobars look very tight over the south there, that relates to some pretty strong winds i believe right?

Not sure about another wind storm. Here in NW Clare the winds have been ever present since yesterday, there seems to be no let up

Very quiet in here.... always a sign that forecasts are gone belly up and people are fed up. I see Met eireann changed their wording in their forecasts this afternoon. Just gales now. I think we have had our weather excitement for now.... the cold spell that was forecasted to begin this weekend has been seriously downgraded to a non event so it’s back to rain and strong breezes for next week.
