This one crept in under the radar a bit with all the attention Doris received. Gusting 48kts tomorrow at Dublin airport with a crosswind between 200-240 degrees will cause some disruption. Large volume of French fans heading home so the airport is going to be jammed anyway.

Now just wait for JCX BXC to say there won't be disruption tomorrow....

But no model is showing any low pressure centre forming west of Ireland tomorrow and moving northeastwards through the UK. Yes some moderately strong winds (110 kph) along the coast and Irish Sea but I can't see more than 120 kph being registered on a land station (except maybe Aberdaron, which is on a 200 m cliff on the Welsh coast).

Looking at the ARPEGE 18z rolling out and I think there is a substantial upgrade on winds along southern coasts and I would think that Wexford will get the strongest winds for a time.

Go check the aviation forum Sparrowcar. That crosswind will likely come off if the forecasts occur as they are forecast

I also give my word that if winds had stayed as forecast during Doris there would have been minor disruption.

That should be the end of the matter, Gaoth Laidir was completely correct in the situation the other day and they have not mentioned it since. That can only be seen as respect, something which can be lacking on boards in general with users desperately trying to one up eachother.

/Rant.

I notice Met Eireann have added counties to both warnings, has there been some last minute upgrades to Ewan too?

All available guidance suggests this will be a level one event, not sure how it gets level two billing, at least over land in Ireland, but the key word here is available, maybe in-house they have something different. Anyway, I won't bite until I see the isobars closer than the 18z Arpege, that looks 40G55 at worst.

Wow really? It was a joke.
It must have hit you pretty bad being so wrong about Doris. I was not one of the ones trying to "one up" you or anyone else if you look back at our interactions. I just correctly called you out on your prediction of no disruption.

/Response

Anyway with that crosswind component and expected gusts there will be disruptions tomorrow.

Don't know why they don't just cog off the BBC,they'd be way more accurate.

Doris was like a burglar

She took a tree from us

A day later I noticed she took a gate

This Ewan will get 60knots in Wexford

Came out of nowhere

Thats why weather is the best thing in life
