  1. Max gust of 47mph in Buxton early this morning, more noticeable was the squall and ongoing temperature drop of -2'c p/h as it passed over.
  2. Good clear visibility around the Peaks today so I took a quick drive to to Pym Chair near Shining Tor and could see all the way westwards across the Cheshire plain to Snowdonia, and northwards to Lancs.
  3. I must be the complete opposite as I enjoy winter, if you're cold outside then you're not wearing the right clothing is what the Scandinavians say. I bought myself a nice double-fleece layered/waterproof jacket for £160 that has kept me cosy as opposed to wearing hoodies just to "look" cool, people complaining outside the pub this weekend just gone that it's "too cold" when it below-freezing temperatures and all they're wearing a a summer sweatshirt. The weather is good for photographers with often clearer airmasses allowing for more scenic pictures, I was up at Crich Tramway Village yesterday overlooking the Sherwood Foresters memorial and could see as far as Loughborough.

    Yep just bumped into a house

    Hurricane Michael

    Its still running for me, nothing but complete whiteout with the occasional wave breaking up the contrast as it hits the windscreen.

    Earthquake Activity Thread

    7.5 earthquake hits Indonesia today, with a local Tsunami generated around the Donggala area
  9. The 'Medicane' can be seen spinning away on the Sat24 loop to the north of Libya at the moment https://en.sat24.com/en/ly
  10. windyty takes the 'Medicane' further westwards towards Sicily and looping towards the Libyan coastline before dissipating over Crete. It's a interesting 48hr ahead to see how intense this system becomes.
  11. Had a short but sharp squall pass through locally around a hour ago, viscous enough against the window at times to begin worrying about preparing for a broken windowpane or tile coming off the roof. Luckily everything has held together in place but still slightly grumpy now with it being 02:45am and more squally rain is on the way. Edit a peak gust of 56mph was recorded in Buxton at 02:33am
  12. Been stuck under the convective rain-line for just over a hour here now with roads turning into rivers and that's just in the areas up above town, the River Goyt would be interesting to see in a couple of hours as all of tonight's rain makes it's way down towards Stockport.
  13. Starry skies in south Manchester tonight and not a hint aside from the humidity that the airmass outside is the remnants of a ex-Hurricane.
  14. Lots of rain over Scotland from the RADAR, any warnings out for flooding there? I can only suspect the warnings out for tonight across England and Wales are due to the risk of falling tree's already compromised by the summer heatwave with the risk of dead-branches falling. Other than that it's humid outside but barely a gust of wind.
  15. windy.com has ex-Helene moving further eastwards on most of the runs, 2 days it was looking like western Ireland and the outer Scottish Isles would have bore the worst of the gales but the past runs have been favorable taking ex-Helene's windfield across the Irish Sea and over the North Pennines/Southern Scotland before exiting into the North Sea. Trust half of my family to have taken a caravaning trip on Anglesey for the week whilst i've had to stay behind due to work commitments. https://www.windy.com
