Calm before the storm.....??

Recommended Posts

I've been following this storm for a few days now and its a bit of a worry.....

It was upgraded last week from a tropical storm to a Cat 1(while in the Mid-Atlantic)  and i believe its been as high as Cat 3.

I'm not sure of its current status though.....

 

Not sure of its current path either, but its progressing in our direction.

I've not seen a storm like this before so close to Western Europe, and if you zoom in you can see a well defined eyewall.

Apparently Ireland have had emergency meetings about it.

 

What do we think ? Are we in for a rough ride with this one....? Global warming....?

Check out the satellite image i've just taken off the phone (iOS Weatherpro)

The path I saw on a website I looked at a few days ago placed it going over west coast of Ireland then Northern Ireland heading over the west coast of Scotland finally heading towards Norway. I think they said it wasa Cat 1 storm.

We certainly seem to be experiencing some ridiculous temperatures for this time of year. Might see 22 degrees C tomorrow!

 

My weather forecast is not showing anything out if the ordinary in the next week or two.

That would explain why the Irish are worried about it and planning contingencies.

In contrast to the rest of the UK 30 years ago !!

 

But these things can change direction and be unpredictable.

Whats Ophelia's next move going to be.....?
