Indeed, although I prefer my Athena idea :D

Maybe Zorba broke a few plates on the way through.
Zorba just reminds me of time spent at Stavros (where they did the film) and the local taverna called Zorba. No plates just served on bread.

Tropical Depression 14 became Tropical Storm Michael yesterday. Expected to strengthen and reach Florida mid-week.
 

The potential is increasing for a severe windstorm to develop late this week across western Europe, especially across Ireland and partly also western Scotland. The development of sting-jet is possible and therefore damaging wind potential is enhanced.

Severe windstorm expected to hit Ireland this Friday, Oct 12th

If it does make landfall this will be Storm Callum. Leslie is following on behind. We're doomed.
 


Update on Hurricane Leslie Expected to track between the Azores and the Canary Islands. Leslie could make landfall in Madeira at hurricane strength before weakening into a tropical storm or a post-tropical storm and will then likely track towards the SW Iberian peninsula this weekend.

Presumably the cucumber to the north is Callum.
 


And suddenly there's Nadine. You'll recall she was the bitch that was to bear a child for The Walking Dude in The Stand. Probably still a bitch and while she's heading North west at the mo I have a bad feeling about her.
 

Met Eireann has issued Wind Warnings for Storm Callum for Thursday night and Friday morning with wind speeds of up to 130 kph forecast. Orange level for coastal counties, Yellow level inland. The warnings come into effect at 10 pm for Cork and Kerry and from Midnight for the rest of the country. Presumably similar for NI and Scotland.

Galway city is expecting flooding with a high tide of 5.2 m at 0745 on Friday and a storm surge of 0.8 m.

Earlier reports suggested the possibility of a sting jet, which is apparently what caused the destruction in October 1987. The phenomenon is explained below.

For those who prefer words and have volume off to prevent interminable alarms and notifications.

Storm Callum has been and gone from most of the ROI. Orange wind warnings remain in place for the north west counties. The wind was not as bad as forecast as the storm was 350km west of Ireland but Belmullet still recorded a gust of 124 kph. this morning.

Meanwhile Hurricane Michael, also now a Post Tropical Storm has departed the US and is heading eastward. Predicted to hit the Bay of Biscay next weekend.



Later this weekend Post Tropical Storm Leslie to hit the Iberian Peninsula. With all this talk of Callum we've been missing the excitement of flash floods in the Med.
 
200-400 mm of rainfall possible in eastern Spain today and tomorrow. That area has been getting a bit of a pasting for the last week or so.

No need to worry as the rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain.
