RISK OF STRONG WINDS AND HIGH SEAS TONIGHT AND WEDNESDAY ALONG ATLANTIC COASTAL COUNTY'S
A area of low pressure which is moving westwards of the east coast of the USA is due to under go cyclogenesis over the coarse of the next view hours leading to very strong winds across Iceland and Greenland on Wednesday and Thursday with the risk of winds gusting up to 150km/hr.
As this deep area of low pressure moves across the Atlantic tracking eastwards towards Ireland it will then veer northwards and head towards Iceland and Greenland on Wednesday afternoon.
The main thing here in Ireland is that we will miss this storm but still see gusty to strong winds especially along Atlantic coastal regions where there will be high sea with the risk of some coastal flooding.
The main reason the track of the storm suddenly veers northwards staying away from Ireland is due to a strong ridge of High pressure which is centred over central Europe keeping the deep low from tracking across the country.Later this evening and tonight there will be a period of gusty to strong winds with the risk of high seas and coastal flooding as another area of low pressure develops moving northwards towards Iceland and Greenland.
Then on Wednesday that very deep area of low pressure moves west then veers northwards towards Iceland and Greenland again and when doing so it's is rapidly developing with pressie dropping. On Wednesday across Atlantic coastal county's there will be again the risk of some high seas and coastal flooding mainly at high tide.
No severe winds are expected from these systems but strong wind gust for a time is possible.The good news is that the weekend is looking nice and mild with a better chance of drier conditions and sunshine in places.
