Yeah, thanks for the updates mate, and running the comp. It'll be interesting to see if the highest windspeed will fall above or below my guess (or even bang on :D ), if it was January of last year then I would have guessed above 100mph but as this Autumn/Winter has been quieter I went for something a little more conservative. There was a little bit of (perhaps flawed) logic :D:D
