Weather Bomb

A Weather Bomb (a great name for a band) is going to hit us today according to the forecasts. All we can do is sit and wait for it – and hope for a bit of luck withe tides.

If the high tides hit us at the same time as the storms then we are really in for it. So we need a bit of luck – especially when they are predicting winds of up to 80mph and waves of up to 40 feet.

So, will we be lucky with the tides here?

Moville Tides

Here are the times of the tides today.

Low Tide 02:08 (0.60m)
High Tide 08:44 (2.30m)
Low Tide 15:06 (0.90m)
High Tide 21:14 (2.20m

So, it depends on when the worst of the storm is going to be. It’s supposed to be pretty bad in the late afternoon and early evening so it looks as if we have dodged a bullet there with low tide at 15:06.

Big Danger

The big danger will be at 21:14 when it is high tide.

Will the storm still be as strong then?

If it is, we will be in trouble – and it will be in the dark with no help likely to arrive till morning.

We shall have to just wait and see.
