Currently just west of Bermuda, Hurricane Epsilon is expected to become picked up by a strong jet stream over the weekend before transitioning into a very powerful Atlantic post-tropical depression with possibly one of the lowest central pressure readings in the past two centuries before. The storm then is expected to push north eastwards some 300-500 km off the west coast next Tuesday, however such is its strength and depth that some impacts are likely across Ireland.
Though too early to have any significant level of confidence in the final evolution of this storm, it’s likely that Ireland will experience heavy rain, strong to gale force winds in excess of 100km/h in some parts, with a significant sea swell possibly in excess of 14 metres off the west coast. Further monitoring of this system will be required as forecasts are likely to chop and change somewhat between now and next Tuesday. Some further weather warnings are also likely between now and then also for some heavy rain and strong winds.
