Tracking Storm Helene

We’re tracking a very low pressure system moving in from the south-west, expected to bring windy and wet conditions overnight Monday into Tuesday morning. The media is hailing this a hurricaine however we’re expecting gusts of upto 45mph and sustained wind speeds of 20mphs, a mild storm, certainly not a hurricaine. While service distruption is not expected, it is likely that intense rain will degrade speeds slightly. We’re going to continue monitoring this situation around the clock. If you need to report any loose equipment, now is the time to do so.

Update: 18/09/2018 – We’re witnessing air pressure fall to 994 hPa as Storm Helene passes Ireland, This is pulling sustained wind speeds of 25mph with gusts of upto 40mph.

As present, there is no reported issues or outages and we expect this weather to continue until noon (18/09/18). With  more of the same on Wednesday night and a potential 70 mph storm coming in on Thursday evening. All eyes will be on the skies.
