  1. I have a flight out of Heathrow at 9:05 Saturday morning. Anyone have any idea if it may be affected by this incoming weather system, Brian or otherwise?
  2. Hurricane Ophelia

    Still gusting up to about 35-40 here which I must admit is more than I expected. Out of what little I can make of the sunset, it still seems pretty dusty up there...
  3. Hurricane Ophelia

    Wind just suddenly picked up as well. I know it's nowhere near as bad as what's going on in Ireland and Western UK, but it's still something.
  4. Hurricane Ophelia

    Sky is now yellow again, but I can see the edge of the main bank of cloud.
  5. Hurricane Ophelia

    Sky now moving back to a normal late afternoon grey. Never seen the sky change so much in such a short period of time.
  6. Hurricane Ophelia

    This is the weirdest sky I have ever seen. The sun has gone and there's now a sort of yellowish hue. Eerie...
  7. Hurricane Ophelia

    Sky looks apocalyptic here. Very creepy...!
  8. Hurricane Ophelia

    Stay safe everyone who is in the path, Ophelia's not messing around. From a selfish point of view, I'm glad it's not further east!
  9. Very windy here now. Not sure about actual numbers, but it must be around about the 40mph mark. I think it might also be raining too, so not quite Irma, but it is something.
  10. According to the map a few posts up, I'm due for up to 45mph gusts tonight, so shouldn't cause any real damage which is good. Wind already starting to pick up a bit now though...
  11. Think that's it for the day now. Didn't take a direct hit thunder wise, but had some biblical rain, and also some deep, distant rumbles as well. That being said, it would be wrong of me to complain about it all being distant, it has been a great 2017, and I know others haven't been quite so lucky.
  12. Appears to be moving more East than towards me, but still putting out regular deep rumbles as well as what looks to be possibly a shelf cloud? Too dark for a photo though.
  13. Another cell appeared to my NW that's now rumbling away every so often
  14. It's absolutely torrential out there. Hopefully it clears before I get off! Lightning seems to have slowed down though... Edit: Passed over much quicker than I thought. Didn't see any more lightning but the rain was immense. Some nice CB towers off to the north now though
  15. On the bus home from school about to drive into a thunderstorm. Seen 2 distant flashes so far. Hope I get home before the rain!
