  1. Not what I was expecting either! Just started raining here again this afternoon and its now Tuesday. Guess Wales isn't getting much luck with this settled warm spell, and it does need to dry out for a bit here as everything is completely soaked.
  2. I disagree for the simple fact that 40-50mph winds are known to bring some branches off trees and a few tiles off roofs. Don't know about you but I Wouldn't want to be outside near trees or buildings when thats happening.
  3. Probably Wrong As I tend to find the Arpege model always over predicts the winds compared to the others. Many times in the past the Arpege model would show 70-80mph gusts with the others just 40-60mph and 40-60mph would more often than not be what we got.
  4. Got a max gust of 52.4mph up a nearby hill earlier with one of my handheld anemometers so must have been just 30-40mph lower down where our house is. Dropped down quite a bit recently so unless it picks up again the worst seems to have been between 3:00PM and 6:00PM.
  5. Its already starting to get going here though its just windy with 20mph and possibly 30mph gusts. Fully expecting to beat my highest wind yet here in on one of the hills here near brongest of 46mph.
  6. Big Differences between this and xcweather! Can only see 40-60mph gusts inland on those maps but this one is showing a short period of 60-80mph. Confused.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Another sub-zero night here last night with a low of -3.2C. Clear weather currently with a temperature of +3.2C.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Just had a few rumbles here with some showers that have been going on since this morning.
  16. 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.

  18. 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.
  19. Hope the risk of thunder moves further west for tomorrow as the southwest hasn't been very lucky for decent duration of storms this Summer.

      Only four thunder-days over here, so far, this year...

  20. Agree! Have to say we have been quite unlucky for storms here this summer with only a few rumbles the last time and two short-lived periods of intense storms in May and June. Personally hope the risk does move further west as I wan't something to come from all of this extended unpleasant heat.
  21. Brilliant lightning displays and good rumbles from mid-level storms!!!!!
  22. Was outside in the field seeing well developed cumulonimbus clouds with dark bases and loads of rumbles. Then got drenched running back to the house which was fun.
