    Latest ECM ensembles are much more varied than earlier on. All sorts of possibilities. About 30% primarily affect Ireland with gusts between 90mph and 115mph gusts depending on the particular ensemble member. Another 30% odd see very strong winds through both S Ireland and the Irish Sea with a few close to 100mph in this region (mostly 80-90mph maxes). About 10% now track through the Channel, with a couple of runs giving 90 mph winds for Cornwall and 75-85mph further along the S Coast. And some miss to the west of Ireland completely - one of them bizarrely skirts around the west of Ireland and hits western Scotland with 110mph gusts. 

    I don't know about the GEM, but the ECM does seem to be on its own right now, with the GFS keeping to further west and the UKMO being closer to it in its analysis.

    I'm pretty sure the sky turning yellow is the met office trying out a new warning system after some backlash. 

    Looking forward to my trip to #Ireland

    Once Ophelia becomes extratropical the 'spin' from around the eye slows down considerably, with this the windfield that was once around the core being 'splayed' outwards, which is what a few models are showing. This would make sense if the system is passing over southern/central Ireland with landfall interaction also playing it's role.

    My thought's ...as hurricanes just happen and can't be predicted.Does this mean all present long range model predictions are now wrong from this point?

    Ophelia has been modelled and tracked since Monday, from when it was just a small tropical depression.

    This is Monday's map from the NHC

    BULLETIN
    Hurricane Ophelia Advisory Number  15
    NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL172017
    500 PM AST Thu Oct 12 2017
    
    ...OPHELIA BARELY MOVING BUT CONTINUES TO STRENGTHEN...
    
    
    SUMMARY OF 500 PM AST...2100 UTC...INFORMATION
    ----------------------------------------------
    LOCATION...30.4N 35.5W
    ABOUT 715 MI...1150 KM SW OF THE AZORES
    MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS...100 MPH...155 KM/H
    PRESENT MOVEMENT...STATIONARY
    MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE...973 MB...28.74 INCHES
    
    
    WATCHES AND WARNINGS
    --------------------
    There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.
    
    Interests in the Azores should refer to products issued by the
    Azores Weather Forecast and Watch Center.
    
    
    DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
    ------------------------------
    At 500 PM AST (2100 UTC), the eye of Hurricane Ophelia was located
    near latitude 30.4 North, longitude 35.5 West. Ophelia is currently
    meandering, but a east-northeast motion is expected to begin
    tonight.  A east-northeast motion is forecast to continue after that
    with a substantial increase in forward speed by this weekend.  On
    the forecast track, the center of Ophelia will remain south of the
    Azores through Saturday.
    
    Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 100 mph (155 km/h)
    with higher gusts.  Some weakening is forecast during the next 48
    hours, but Ophelia is expected to remain a hurricane for the next
    couple of days.
    
    Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles (35 km) from the
    center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles
    (130 km).
    
    The estimated minimum central pressure is 973 mb (28.74 inches).
    
    
    
    HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
    ----------------------
    RAINFALL:  Ophelia is expected to produce total rain accumulations
    of 2 to 4 inches over Santa Maria Island of the Azores Saturday and
    Saturday night.  During the same time, a cold front and moisture
    associated with Ophelia is expected to produce total rain
    accumulations of 1 to 3 inches over the other islands of the Azores.
    This rainfall could produce flooding, especially over Santa Maria
    Island.
    
    
    NEXT ADVISORY
    -------------
    Next complete advisory at 1100 PM AST.

    Brace yourselves Southern/Western Ireland I'd start the preparation this could be seriously bad more than a 1 in 10 year storm nothing is concrete yet but looking increasingly likely to blast parts of Ireland.

    To be fair, it's looking worse and worse for the whole of Ireland. I suspect that if you had the track line turned on for that map, it's getting closer to running straight up the middle of Ireland.

    .. and it's moving further and further east with each update.
