Been monitoring a couple of other non weather related forums that I use and one guy stands out in particular. Seems to be currently in Dublin and there is hardly any wind so nothing to worry about, has decided that everyone worrying is a snowflake.

It's complacency like this that worries me the most in events like this.


I get you Darandio, but it does feel pretty calm here right now, i know that will change though. People not interested in weather don't understand the risks.

their armoured vehicles are being made ready-

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

Time of photo 10.34 BST.
Ok, now not a brilliant photo I know, but I’m just out with the hound on his mid morning walkies, when I looked up at the sky, and saw that the sun was blood red! :shok:
Now I’ve seen orange coloured suns at this hour, but only on hot sticky sultry summers days before a big thunderstorm breaks out.
But never a red sun.
Me thinks that hurricane Ophelia is going to make this an interesting day! Stay safe people.

By the way, morning ev:)eryone 


Same here took a photo but can’t work out how to

14 flood warnings for southern England ( Storm Surge?)

Well there's no rain about so I'd say that's probable. I do hope those in Ireland have been full!y warned about the possibility as they will have a bigger problem in that regard.

Wind Warning for Ireland

Latest Update

Ex-Hurricane Ophelia is forecast to track up over western parts of Ireland during daytime today. Violent and destructive gusts of 120 to 150 km/h are forecast countrywide and in excess of these values in some very exposed hilly and coastal areas. The most severe winds over Munster and south Leinster at present, will extend quickly to the rest of the country this afternoon. Also heavy rain and storm surges along coasts will
result in flooding.

There is a danger to life and property.

To recap

Most severe conditions over Munster and South Leinster now

Extending quickly to remaining areas this afternoon

The weirdest sky I've ever seen here in Bristol. It started out as a pale gold, hazy colour, and now looks like really dirty, heavy yellow cotton wool. Inside the house, it looks like we're just short of nightfall and outside there's lots of rubbish skittering about on the road as it's recycling day and a few of the neighbour's bags blew over before the van got here. No rain. Despite the wind, the air is strangely warm. I don't know if it's my imagination as I've not heard anyone else mention it, but for the last hour or so I've been able to smell something kind of sulphuric, but kind of like something burning too. We're only on the edge of it here - I pity those stuck in the middle.

Wind picking up here in Antirm, Northern Ireland, not that strong at the moment. Sky very yellow here too.

Plenty of disruption already tho, Schools closed, concert venues and buildings closing at 12pm, shops and businesses closed or closing early.  Major disruption at all airports with majority of flights cancelled now and most ferries cancelled.

Looks weaker than expected on XC weather or it's running behind schedule.

I did think that but looking at Argepe, 70mph seems about right for 11am - the really bad stuff probably hitting around 1pm? Still a bit concerned that W Wales may be close to 90mph by early evening too.
