  1. Aberdaron, along with Capel Curig top the mainland wind gusts speeds again at 78 mph. Not as high as 90mph with Ophelia. Heres at Aberdaron is why there were warnings out for tidal surges this morning.. '
  2. Certainly still blowing a hoolie here but I'm also exposed and at altitude. Not as bad as Ophelia though. Hopefully if it dies down soon we're off down the peninsula for a beach walk with dogs now the tides out.
  3. It's Wales rather than the South West taking the brunt of Brian. Gusts increased here in the last hour as the Storm centre moves across the Irish Sea. Certainly warranted a Yellow and Spring tidal surge/flood warnings for this region.
  4. Aberystwyth taking a pounding again. Capel Curig is top of the leader board for wind gusts at 70 mph. I can confirm it's a tad breezy here as my bins have gone up the lane for a nice walk again this morning.
  5. Hurricane Ophelia

    Accu-weather source for current and forecast data apparently. Maybe some rogue observation stations in there amongst the pucker ones !?!
  6. Hurricane Ophelia

    Quite! Hence my question but Met Office says 62mph earlier in Shawbury.
  7. Hurricane Ophelia

    Anyone know the source & accuracy of their data. Observations and metar data appear to be from weather stations but higher than reported here on NW? http://skylinkweather.com/metar/metar-hilo.php
  8. Hurricane Ophelia

    At tad breezy on Snowdon summit at 121.8 mph
  9. Hurricane Ophelia

    I see Capel Curig matches Aberdaron for the max gust today in Wales at 90 mph
  10. Hurricane Ophelia

    Flood warnings are out for Tidal surges for most of the Welsh coast. Almost high tide in Abersoch with big swell.
  11. Hurricane Ophelia

    Damage further down the Llyn at Pwllheli...
  12. Hurricane Ophelia

    Some "sandy" rain must have fallen.. earlier tweet from Midlands Today weather presenter..
