    Went to the mother inlaw's for breakfast this morning as we do every year. They live approx 15km from us and at a similar altitude, near Drumlish, there was some lying snow at there house and in the surrounding hills ...so I guess that counts as a white Christmas :)

    Met Ireland updated there storm warning parts of the south could see 150km gust from this storm and the rest 130km gusts this is near the same strength as the big storm back in 1998 which caused widespread damage i was fixing power lines 2 weeks after the storm on that occasion, stay save as this storm in coming is a beast and a lot of people will get caught out i am afraid............

    Yep, I'd say it's just a mistake, parts of Cork could have the worst winds.

     

    Action starting shortly after 3pm today, with wind reaching their peak at 3am tomorrow

    Very still and quiet here at the moment. I still have my doubts as to whether this storm will amount to much here on the north east coast but the south and south west look to be in for a lively time.

    Already quite lively here, sounds wonderful! With 9 hours to go until they peak, it should be an interesting night.

    It's windy here, though nothing remarkable yet. We've had four brief power outages tonight. Though they're not apparently weather-related, they're certainly adding to the atmosphere.

    Bad in lisburn with wind and rain the past couple of hours, some really strong gust!!

    Radar shows the rain to stop in the next hour or so!! Not as cold as it was earlier with ice on road not thawing for most of the day!!

    Is it to return later and winds to continue?

    Definitely the worst so far this winter!!

    Vicious for a while, but just spoke to someone in a control centre who tells me the damage from this storm has been exceptional so far with trees, poles down, and roofs blown off houses in parts of Killenny, Louth, Kildare, Dublin etc and looking at the development of this, the worst is yet to come!!!

    Incredibly gusty down here, winds in excess of 100km/h across the south coast, and something like 120km/h in Waterford about an hour ago.

    Plenty of downed trees in places around the city, and lights have been flickering here for the past few hours.

    Hope everyone's OK.

    Great noisy storm so far. Had a quick car journey to pick up my sister from work, 2 downed trees, flooding and countless branchs down along the 5km route.
