Pig Warning

In the old days, there was little warning of the arrival an Atlantic gale, except the signs in the sky like red sunrises. Now we have detailed forecasts which are usually right. 

The same sort of evolution is occurring with the arrival of Hughie's pigs in Ormsaigbeg. At one time they just turned up. At least we now get warning and, as you would expect of the modern, mass-pig farmer, it's all very high tech. We get an email with a picture of what's coming our way.

Many thanks to Hughie for the picture but not the pigs,
and to Cameron Beccario here for the wind map.

  1. Looks like a convergence causing a large depression with a moderate risk of an overrunning divergence.
