It was windy over night in Letterkenny area but not stormy, reasonably calm now with light wind.

I forgot to put the empty wheelie bin in the garage last night and it was still standing in its usual place this morning.

We did not break the 112km/hr in Castlebar so the winds peaked early, still though a very wild night with some heavy hail falls, still frequent squally bands of mixed precipitation occuring.

Graces7, are you on Boffin or Clare?

Blue skies here in Galway with the odd shower. Chilly wind.

Looks like Malin, Belmullet and Mace recorded 101 km/h, wind speeds were a bit under than forecast. I think the storm stayed out further than was showing up on the models and is positioned further N than the models were suggesting a couple of days ago, they did catch up well in the end .

SHOCKING considering you weren't even in a yellow warning.

At an event earlier this year I asked why couldn't latest reports be given in kmh as that is what forecasts and warnings used and Evelyn Cusack basically sniggered and said knots is what they use!

While many changes in Met Eireann have helped with the public experience some of what they do is mind boggling!
