I'm surprised that no one has mention this evenings' winds. They are pretty wild. Also, I'm surprised no warning was issued for this evening, too.

Oh wow... People on Facebook... Make me mad... In a nerdy sense ;)

Someone was saying about 90mph winds being forecast, and someone else said something about a hurricane... I'm sat here like; that's what happens if sensationalist headlines are put out!

I'll do a proper forecast tomorrow evening once the low forms and heads for the UK. But this is a broad brush guide as to where I'm at with my thoughts currently, based on the 12z model data;

post-12721-0-38428200-1382814909_thumb.j

Areas in red are likely to see gusts widely in excess of 70mph with many places also seeing 80mph gusts, especially nearer the coast you are. I also think, on a more isolated nature, a few 90mph localised gusts are possible here.

Areas in orange are likely to see gusts widely in excess of 60mph with some places recording gusts of 70mph. An isolated gust or two in prone locations such as Bristol Channel coasts, of 80mph is also possible.

The area in green are likely to see gusts in excess of 50mph with some 60mph gusts also possible in favoured locations, such as high ground etc.

Bear in mind, with wind, tropographic and local nuances come into play a lot, so a lot will also depend on your local environment. As I said, this will be updated tomorrow evening to a more detailed standard hopefully.

Oh I've avoided Facebook, this is the only  place I can share my passion with people without getting sarcastic comments. 

 

And usually if I warn anyone on facebook, it all goes the way of the pear and I look foolish, won't be doing that this winter!!

I am laughed at at work when I give out weather warnings so I empathise!  Our team has grown in the last year which, no doubt, means more hoots of laughter in the office about my weather ramblings!

Hi I have to say that speaking to people around North Devon they feel we will be on the shelted side so are not worried at all. They also go on to say that North Devon is never mentioned they just talk of Devon as a whole think they forget we are on to sepearate coasts North Cornwal North Somerset ETC.. I honestly dont know what to say, maybe they are right most of North Devon away from exposed hights and coasts wont even notice. So I suppose we will have to wait and see..

Any info would be greatly recieved..

Latest from Ian:

"#UKSTORM UPDATE 20:15 BST SAT: General theme remains as previously billed but expect slower arrival & clearance of worst weather. Rain from developing storm begins later Sunday. Some lull in winds before these increase markedly 00z Mon onward. Dramatic increase in winds into early hrs Mon; possibly peaking towards circa 6am/rush-hour. SW'rly initially, veering W/WNW later in AM. Strongest winds through by mid-morning, but remaining windy nonetheless thereafter. Currently expect strongest winds broadly S of line approx #Taunton - #Wincanton - A303 corridor: gusts 60-70+mph with potential for 80mph gusts coastal districts #Dorset. Similar strength in upland exposure of adjacent areas. For #Bristol, #B&NES, N #Wiltshire, N #Somerset: gusts 50-60mph more likely, perhaps decreasing N throughout Glos. However, these approximations are based on *current* f'cast: it's a very developmental situation; stay tuned. Final cautionary note: in past 3 years, we've seen local trees felled by just 45-50mph gusts. Please treat Amber Warning seriously."

Absolutely!  We are in the zone.  I need to go and secure my garden furniture and anything else that may be whipped up as a missile.  I have a huge tree opposite me with quite a few dead branches so I fear for it's strength now. 

 

The fact that the trees still have most of their leaves is a huge problem as the wind doesn't whip through them like when the leaves have dropped.

 

Sorry, not meaning to scare you!

 

 

Yes through early hours of Monday morning. Some strong wind gusts of 50-60mph for Oxon/Berks area. A lot of heavy rain aswell which will add further woe with our area seeing a lot of rain in the last few weeks after a mostly dry settled summer.

 

 

My guess is that my location is likely to receive 40mph to 50mph gusts at tops. Having said that, I am in a valley and I very rarely receive winds above 40mph. Winds above 40mph however, are potentially life-threatening. If you are in a vulnerable location, i.e. prone to windy spells from experience, my advice is to stay indoors and wait to see what Monday morning brings. Posted Image

 

Thanks guys, I'll try and make sure I keep safe by sleeping downstairs, and I guess if those huge trees fall down they'll fall down on the car which keeps on coming back "for sale" every 2 days

That'll teach the dude a lesson for trying to sell cars on public grass!

I can't see any lightning strikes showing up on the radar currently but there's a decent squall line feature heading into parts of Bristol, Gloucester and Wells as I type. Posted Image That will pep the winds up for a brief period.

Heavy rain here too. Very squally out.

  • Temperatures into heatwave territory and no rain

    Some parts of the UK could qualify for heatwave conditions later this week and it's not the usual suspects. No rain as water levels decline and how are the evening skies for LanuchAmerica viewing? Watch the video here
