Forecasts for Ireland

Full moon has occurred already today at 0437h and this will be a factor in exceptionally high tides, possibly to storm surge levels, with the strong winds expected over the next three days (in particular, Monday midday).

ALERT for very strong winds on Monday afternoon and evening with speeds in the 100-150 km/hr range, some possible wind damage and shoreline overtopping from combined storm surge and waves mainly west coast and some parts of south coast.


MONDAY ... The day will become very windy again with the risk of storm force wind gusts in exposed areas (expect at least SW 80-130 km/hr) with potential for local gusts to 150 km/hr and some damage, periods of rain (10-20 mm) as temperatures peak around 8-10 C in gale force winds ... the peak winds should hit around noon to 6 p.m. but could last longer in some northern and eastern regions.

TUESDAY ... A second strong wind event is currently expected at about the same time and with similar weather outcomes, intervals of rain, some mixed or wintry showers in north, and peak winds once again SW 80-130 km/hr. Lows near 2 C and highs near 8 C. Although some models have downgraded the intensity of this event, the ECM maintains it and we must wait and see how things unfold as the situation is too volatile for much precision -- this storm will not even begin to form until well into tonight.

40kn with gusts to 50 here from the south. Large tanker trying to get into Cork harbour struggling with the 4m waves.

The big problem though is that between all the recent frost, and the heavy rain that followed, the road surfaces are in bits. Lots of super potholes out there.

So my missus just walked past me, helmet in hand.

I looked at her and asked if she was sure about what she was doing, considering the weather and especially wind and all. She went "its not that bad now, is it?", as it calmed down here in South Dublin significantly over night.

I'm still rather worried reading the forecast for today.

Not too bad at all in Dublin. No rain and very little wind at the moment.

Dammit, the batteries in my weather station packed in yesterday, the ones in the wireless transmitter yoke up on the roof.

Be fucked if I'm climbing up a ladder to replace them now...
