  1. Agreed - Storm Ciara was/is nothing too unusual for this part of the world, just a fairly typical winter storm and the squall line wasn't as bad as some I've experienced. What is unusual about Ciara is the widespread effects - it isn't every day you see gale force winds across almost all of the UK.
  2. Manchester to Frankfurt, that's some divert but no doubt the nearest sensible option - weather at AMS wasn't great either.
  3. 1350 METAR on January 18th 2007 reported 65 knot gusts - memorable as it took the felt off my shed roof and some on my street lost a couple of roof tiles. Looks like EK17 has given up with MAN and is off to his alternate.
  4. Highest gust speed I have seen from MAN since I got into this weather lark back in 2007. I suspect the readings reflect the wind speeds during the passing of the squall line.
  5. Yep, Met Office is forecasting 60mph gusts for Rochdale on Thursday, not something we see every day, or even every year...
  6. Yep, yellow warnings from 12:00 on Friday until 06:00 on Saturday but before people get too excited they are for rain and not wind.
  7. We may not be able to feel or know 'nothing' but it exists…what can you remember from before you were born?
  8. Nothing. We have awareness, consciousness etc because of our brains and the brain dies when we do. So there's nothing after death, that's it, sorry..
