    UK Met on the BBC there made it clear that it was the Irish weather service that named the storm as they see it impacting Ireland.
    Not sure the UK were convinced.

    Winds seem to be easing back now.
    Still some gusts.

    Worst of it was from 10.30 to 11.30.

    Squall has hit Dublin 15, sheets of rain and gusty. Possibly a bit of short term flight disruption.

    Already been 3 diversions, if operations stopped at all currently there's so much in the holds that there'd be a pile of diversions.

    They seemed convinced enough to issue a yellow warning last night. This was from their website.

    Absolute sheets here in D20

    We were mostly confused last night as this system didn't warrant an orange warning or storm name.
    Met Eireann called this one and it has left most on here scratching our heads.

    It could have done with a yellow rainfall warning

    Sun's out now.

    Edit should be good drying out now.
    We seem to have missed out on the heavy rain in wexford.

    Quieter here now but a rumbling of wind round the mountains. Part of the garden here was under water.. Chilly...

    71km/h still holding as max gust so far here. Regular gusts to 60km/h so nothing out of the ordinary really. Unless the squall to our West delivers something higher it's looking like another non event.

    www.waterfordcityweather.com for live streams and data

    Top gust so far at Johnstown Castle is 39 knots.

    It is interesting that Finner Camp, on the opposite side of the country, is registering a higher mean and gust speed on the 1300 reports.

    Got a gust of 71 km/h here just before 09.00 as the cold front passed turning into the squall line mentioned in previous posts

    Watching the BBC weekly forecast on BBC1 there about an hour ago, the presenter made a point of saying that 'Storm Ewan' was named, not by them, but by the 'Irish Met Service' due to their concerns about potential impacts.

    Sun out now here. Max gust 71km/h in Waterford City and 80 at Waterford Airport which is on the coast more or less. Credit to Su for calling this right again. The Arpege model way off the mark for this region.

    This is mad about about the Gust of 40kts at 14.00 at Johnstown Castle.
    Although I suppose that is the thing of Gusts they can be localised.

    This weather station in Wexford Harbour ties in more with the timeline in what i'm experiencing that the strongest winds were from 10.30 to roughly 11.30 or 11.45.
    https://www.windfinder.com/report/wexford-harbour?fspot=wexford&temporary=True

    They recorded the strongest gust at 12.08 with a gust of 41kts and this is at sea level. I'm at 115m asl.:rolleyes:

    That said, the wind has picked up a bit again but not like it was before.
