  1. Just like Mapantz said it didn't really produce here either with just a top gust of 36mph in the evening and 25-32mph gusts throughout the day which is what we get quite often on days that don't have a warning out.
  2. Been out last few days so wasn't able to post. Highest gust we had on Wednesday was 36.1mph in the evening. Most gusts during the day were between 25-32mph. So it was a typical windy day but I was expecting more with inland 40-60mph gusts forecast. Rain wasn't to much of a problem either. Just light bits throughout the day and moderate bursts in the evening which were short-lived.
  3. Some of the wind gust charts show 50-60mph gusts quite a way inland, so its going to be quite a blow tomorrow if these are true. Might catch some by surprise given how calm its been recently!
  4. Widely 50-60mph gusts going by that for mainland stations. Quite a way inland as well.
  5. Yes I know. Where is the Atlantic storms thread that should be up about now with the discussions. It is quite a breezy evening here already.
  6. This Autumns been rather uneventful for wind storms so far down here hasn't it.:closedeyes:

      as eventful as an england friendly

  7. Seriously I don't think I've ever known the models to change so much as this before! Even the chopping and changing that occurs during the summer months is nothing compared to this. In all honesty though I wan't the charts that are showing the atlantic to fire up next week be correct as this Autumn has been rather boring for Atlantic storms so far and its becoming rather dull.
  8. Yeah! Thought it was suppose to be windy too with 35-45mph gusts. Its blowing from 0 to 7mph right now, Seriously confused?
  9. Only good thing about this weather at this time of year is the colour of the sky and sun against objects which become more colourful then in the summer. I'd rather it mild with plenty of windy weather personally as it gets boring after a while and struggling to pay more money just for heating and possible gritting to reduce the chances of slipping over and breaking your neck isn't really what I wan't to be dealing with. Don't want a repeat of the winters of 2009-2010, but the models are hinting at more cold icy weather and with the cold lovers getting all excited.

  11. Yes we didn't get much of it here as the winds this morning are not much lower then what we had yesterday.
  12. Sunny and cold this morning but more windy then I thought it was going to be with gusts only a bit lower then yesterday.
  13. One max gust of 37mph here at some point in the afternoon with mostly 30mph gusts throughout. It was a nice windy day with some sunshine at times and with your typical windy day level winds we get throughout autumn. I was expecting it to be stronger to be honest with a named storm coming in with max gusts of Force 8 to 9 rather then the Force 6 to 7 we got.

  15. I don't think it matters. All heat lightning is is lightning which is too far away for the thunder to be heard, but because its nighttime its darker so therefore can be seen much further away then during the daytime. Basically, as long as there is some kind of storm nearby at night, then you will see the lightning, just won't hear the thunder.
