    Managed to get a 44mph wind gust on one of the hills around here on Wednesday but had to get back before midday so may have had higher in the afternoon. Apart from another very windy spell yesterday morning its been fairly calm recently with just sunshine and occasional showers in a lighter wind.

    Funny how calm it is here a bit inland compared to when i was at the coast where i measured a wind gust of 24mph. Only been here for a week in southwest wales and its definitely colder today. Weather behaves a bit differently as well compared to how it was in the southwest.
  3. That looks good! Actually fireworks were one of my two favourite things as a kid, the other being thunderstorms. Still like fireworks now but I get more occupied by the other stuff the weather can bring rather then just thunder and lightning.
  4. Another sub-zero night here last night with a low of -3.2C. Clear weather currently with a temperature of +3.2C.
  5. Are you sure its not fireworks as there can be some this time of year? If it is lightning, then I do wonder what may come as I no there is suppose to be a risk tonight but its not great. May be too far inland here anyway.
  6. Coldest Night of the autumn last night here with a low of -3.8C. Didn't expect it to get lower than the -1.9C I saw last night to be honest before going indoors.
  7. First time its dropped below freezing here this autumn currently with a temperature of -1.8C. Thought it was suppose to be getting milder now, happy about it though as I didn't wan't to go through a forecasted cold snap without it getting to - minus figures.
  8. Well its just gusted to 22mph here with some drizzle thats just gone past.
  9. As soon as the models started doubting its strength a few days ago I new it was probably going to turn into nothing. And I have to say the supposed storms we had just recently were themselves disappointments and weaker than I was expecting. Never even got to 40mph here.
  10. Must have been in one of the coldest spots last night as it got down to 4.2C here.
  11. Just had a few rumbles here with some showers that have been going on since this morning.
  12. A few rumbles here just now in amongst the showers.
  13. Don't know if anyone else saw it last night but I saw some faint occasional flashes to the southeast of here past midnight last night before i went to bed so either it was lightning going on somewhere or fireworks. Certain it was lightning because of the way the flashes flickered. And i know heat lightning is a thing where on a clear night you can see lightning from long distances and there is no thunder because of how far the storm is.

  15. Maybe tomorrow will be the first decent day for longer duration thundery weather this year then. Looks like there will certainly be plenty of showers about and more then there were today so its just whether or not they will be beefy enough to produce lightning.
