  1. I'm pretty sure the sky turning yellow is the met office trying out a new warning system after some backlash.

  2. I'm sure everyone is au fait with the expected weather for today so just a quick overview as this will be covered in detail in other threads. Essentially the UK can be split N/S with the eastern section remaining dry, warm and not that windy whilst to the west the expected low tracks quickly NNE across the west coast of Ireland and then NE across Scotland, filling quite rapidly as it goes, to be around the Western Isles by midnight tonight. Everyone should keep abreast of the detailed warning, particularly for Eire and N. Ireland and western coastal areas and further inland in the north l

  3. Ophelia has caused one of the most bizarre days of weather and skies I have seen for quite sometime.

  8. I hadn't took any notice of the sun until it was mentioned as I thought it was completely overcast outside. But here it is in the Peaks too, with a weird orange/red hue to it.

  10. Right. Here's a prime example of what really annoys me. The BBC have a live page which is constantly updated. Down one side they have a summary. That summary mentions what's been happening in ROI and then we get this little gem. "Amber wind warnings are in place in Northern Ireland and in parts of Wales". No mention that parts of Scotland also have an amber warning. Anyone who looks to that live page for a quick summary will be misled. Thanks, English Broadcasting Corporation. Then again it's not as if the Met Office emphasised this until it was too late. They put out their amber warnings for

  11. I'm here in Cork, travelled for the storm. Safe to say, Its very eerie. We've been advised not go out after 9am. Will try and get some good videos from the hotel window.

  12. I did indeed make the drive down there, left a little before high tide because the wind was just getting ridiculous and it was blowing the dry sand up into almost dust storm conditions, incredible to see really! Drove along on Freshwater East for an hour or two as well! Small fiestas are not comfortable to sleep in!

  13. I must say that this morning was such a strange but amazing experience here in Cornwall. I left the house in Truro near 7.30am and was greeted to the warmest of winds. It really was like being in front of a hairdryer on a low function. It was about 20c and apparently some stations were near 22c in the early hours. Absurd temperatures (but most welcome!) for that time of the day and to be honest, warmer than a vast majority of day time maxes we get in Summer here!!! On my travels I was noticing how it was taking what seemed an age to lighten up. On my walk to work near Bodmin it was quite eerie

  14. I'm at work in central London. I popped outside to take some photos of the sky earlier, but my camera on my phone didn't do it justice. The pictures above are exactly how the sky went - really eerie!

  16. Interesting to note.. Looking at my solar data, at exactly midday, I recorded 9W/m² of solar energy. That's around the equivalent output just before sunset.

  20. We will have to wait for the analysis to see when it did truly change, the MO comment alluded to pieces of jigsaw not quite fitting across the Atlantic in communications. It was an unusual setup. So we can not assume one or other was right or wrong. Also has been a lot of shrieking about Ambers and Red warnings, again no-one will be mucking about with this. Weather is these peoples lives, they live and breathe it like some on the forums. Everyone wants this to go as well as it can.

  24. My tired Monday brain initially interpreted this as 'one of the bouys is on fire!!' and I immediately thought blimey, s*** just got real. Considerably quieter in my part of the country but we also have the eerie yellow and the trees are having a bit of a wave. I'm enjoying the photos and reports, keep them coming!

  29. Dear BBC, What has a storm 30 years ago in the SE of England got to do with current news of Ophelia? More appropriate to a history program than a rolling news broadcast. Simply drivel to bury other news..

  31. I've been watching that bunting since the day before yesterday. I'd become emotionally invested in it. It was my equivalent of Hector the Palm Tree. Even in the dark, because of the street lights, you could see the bunting flap around.This morning it began doing loop-de-loops as the sky cleared over it; one minute it was hanging limply, the next it was straight up in the air, then to the left, to the right. I even heard the"SNAP!" Now that's weird... just typed Stereo MC lyrics... and I saw them in Cork supporting U2 on the Zooropa tour.

  32. Currently in conwy north Wales, very warm and humid here with a slight breeze. The sun is very odd, blood red like a sunset although it's high in the sky, never seen anything like it! A bad omen?!

  36. Quite a surreal end to my day at work seeing that sky go so dark like the heavens where about to unleash a torrent but remarkably hardly a drop of rain as of yet although the wind has got up in the last couple of hours and I also got a brief glimpse of that red sun, honestly about an hour or so ago I witnessed the most impressive looking sky I've ever seen. It looked apocalyptic like something from a horror movie, dark clumpy clouds and day seemed to turn into night in minutes with an orange glow probably caused by the Saharan dust and the sun behind the cloud, remember those clouds rolling in

  38. In the next 20 minutes or so the International Space Station is more or less going to pass over southern Ireland Should be able to get a good view of the storm (The camera switches every now and again so if it does there is one at ISS Stream You may need to set it to HD in settings

  42. Time of photo 10.34 BST. Ok, now not a brilliant photo I know, but I’m just out with the hound on his mid morning walkies, when I looked up at the sky, and saw that the sun was blood red! Now I’ve seen orange coloured suns at this hour, but only on hot sticky sultry summers days before a big thunderstorm breaks out. But never a red sun. Me thinks that hurricane Ophelia is going to make this an interesting day! Stay safe people. By the way, morning everyone.
