I have never seen such a warning, from UK Met Office Shipping Forecast this afternoon:
Here is the Marine Institute’s M6 buoy, well west of Galway:
Here is the UK buoy K2, well to the SW of Kerry:
The display graphic is UK data converted by US NOAA with barometric pressure indicated in inches of mercury. One inch of mercury = 33.86 hectoPascals. So, the top of the chart is 998 hPa and the bottom is 972 hPa, a drop of 26 in nine hours.
Bad enough in Cork and Kerry tonight, but I would not wish to be anywhere near the Isles of Scilly!
