These images give a guide to how the worst of the winds will move through Ireland and the UK, but other areas could be affected, so do keep up with the forecast. Below are wind gust charts, the sudden temporary bursts which could reach hurricane force. Sustained mean winds will be lower.
As of 8pm Sunday 15th, all of Ireland is under a Red alert for winds, all of Northern Ireland has an amber warning for Strong winds and much of western Britain and parts of Scotland, northern England have a yellow warning for wind. All are warnings of SEVERE WEATHER.
Heavy rain setting in for NW Scotland bringing the risk of localised flooding.
NHC advisory #27 Hurricane Ophelia
Individuals are urged to not focus on the exact track of Ophelia since strong winds and heavy rainfall will extend well outside of the NHC forecast cone.
