    Yep that's Galway Docks, from someone who works in one of the offices close to the sea-front.

    The latest paper showing how low ice messes with the PV might come in useful over the rest of winter as exceptional warmth from the south runs into a displaced cold pole esp. if this keeps happening over the N.Atlantic ( just watch the eastern seaboard after we're through with this one!). The issue is not so much wind but the amounts of water vapour they bring ( up to 40kg/m2 this time!!) with them.

    Folk who don't have this graphic might like to bookmark it and look where our atmospheric river is at the next few storms that come through!

    6:30 BBC Weather forecast, she showed 87mph gust, west Ireland, pretty close to Galway

    Then she said 'storm force gusts'

    Well, Hurricane force gusts really. lol

    Exactly.. The current sst are still above normal they have all summer maybe longer.... You notice the pv grabs them like the lows in summer grab the hurricanes (if possible) the ones that form off of Eastern seaboard are are so much more vigorous than if they get grabbed or form inland. Southern states say.. They like hybrid systems cold core but deepen rapidly.. You know hurricanes survive in exactly the same place even before baroclonic strengthening or weakening..so its a great source for the pv to grab energy.. Which is why it's hard for any northern blocking when the jet is over that stretch of water.. If you get what I mean lol ?

    This was more like what i was trying to convey. the peak of the 98' super nino only managed half the potential that flooded us ( again) in 2015. This increase does mean if you get stuck under an atmospheric river for half a day you will see flooding, sit there for another half day and you'll fair as we did with an extra three feet of flooding on top of the last 'record'.

    If we are to see the PV slipping south every winter then it will form systems that will drag up these 'atmospheric rivers' and position then over us like a hose from the Gods.

    With a warmer world comes more energy in our weather systems and increases in the scale of events we see.

    I think we've to get snow over 200m and that means me. I'd really hate to miss a good-going blizzard during the night when I'm sleeping :rofl:

    @Gray-Wolf was it an atmospheric river we received in December 2015? If memory serves me well, didnt we get 3 days of non stop rain dragged up from a moist jet stream... Winter of 2013/14 was incredible for storms being picked up on a powerful jet stream from new foundland, i remember the flooding being bad that winter...

    Wind speeds/gusts are quite a bit higher than some of the latest model guidance would’ve had you believe! 90-100mph is quite a noteworthy event.

    Before the storm hit. Does anyone know what the projected wind gusts were for Connaught?  I suspect not 97 mph
