Storm Hector : Wind Warning :Weds 13 PM to Thurs 14th AM

This has been upgrading in strength over the previous runs and has the potential for more counties to be included to the warnings. It is at the high end of Yellow warning I think and some coastal areas may experience higher gusts. It is an unusually strong wind for the time of year, more so with the trees in full foliage and holiday caravan parks full for the summer and possibly building projects under way that may not be as protected as during the winter months.

You'd imagine Orange would be warranted for Galway, Mayo, perhaps Donegal and Clare also. Mean speeds in excess of 65km/h and gusts in excess of 110km/h shown on GFS, HIRLAM and ECM along coastal fringes.

What a difference a week makes in weather eh? Who would of thought we'd be getting broadsided by an almost dartboard low with the summer solstice just round the corner.

ECM showing areas that would probably go under an Orange warning all right( gusts 110-130 km/h ). Have been watching this for a few days and unusually every run I would say has been upgrading to stronger winds. ECM has been leading the way and is not one to exaggerate wind speeds. The 12z is showing that the system is arriving later than previous runs an not moving away as quickly.

The HIRLAM showing more of the country receiving stronger winds which would probably warrant an Orange Warning given the time of year?

Yeah and I needed to come up here to North Mayo for two days! I thought after all the decent weather it would be a grand two days maybe just a bit of rain! Not a full blown wind!
