The two vortices (or should that be the two vortexes) in this mornings 09 UTC visible satellite image caught my eye (fig 1), because funnily enough they do resemble a pair of eyes. I can see that the one to the southwest of Ireland is connected to the surface low (Gabi) which looks to have a minimum central pressure of around 982 hPa (fig 2).
The more prominent of the two which is sat in the Celtic sea has me stumped though. You would have thought that it was connected to some upper level feature because the clouds spiralling around it look a lot thicker extending to medium or upper levels, but it’s certainly not at the 700 hPa level (fig 3).
