Some confusion now about strongest gust yesterday, in the "yesterday's weather" section of the website Sherkin Island shows 61 knots rather than 66 as earlier reported, leaving Casement and Roches' Point tied at 62 knots but in the hourly graphs those two peak at 115 km/hr while Sherkin peaks at 122 (supporting the 66 knot value). Not sure if this is quality control or oversight.

The 1 pm synop certainly gave 66 knots (34 m/s) as the hourly max gust. Strange.

No, it was named by https://www.ipma.pt/en/, the Portuguese and the agreement is that the first to be affected or impacted name a storm and others carry it on.

I was talking about the 'storm' that affected south west England and Wales yesterday....that should have been Deirdre.

Now that the data is in, here's the table of comparison including Diana in terms of maximum 10-minute mean wind speeds. Will be doing Deirdre next month.



Data comes from Met Éireann.

Darwin was the only storm I recall feeling afraid of, and I was in my own house in Limerick for it's entire duration.
