    Getting quite a few worrying gusts here near Gatwick.

    Got woken by the wind and the dog whimpering.

    Is this it or is it going to get worse? Sorry to sound lame but half asleep.

    The forecasts seem to be pretty much spot on so far, apart from underestimating the rainfall for some parts of the region. Winds just beginning to gust here now.

    A lot worse considering the centre is just off the sw of cornwall and with it rapidly developing still as it crosses land the isobars tighten therefore the wind is going to get stronger and stronger. Hope that helps.

    hi bluebreezer

     

    seems about right as you say

     

    concern is the pressure charts will now get really squeezed by the low

     

    moving from cornwall north eastwards

     

    the rain seems to have been overlloked due to the wind

    A growing area of heavy rain now heading towards London area in a NE direction.....going to be a lot of problems with flooding I suspect with drains getting blocked by all those falling leaves/twigs etc. Especially as its coming down so hard.

    hi iceni

     

    thats the thoughts at present

     

    the sting jet is not a certain thing but seriously possible

     

    keep safe

     

    From what direction would the sting jet come from if it happens?

     

    RE Safety: Don't worry. I've arranged things so we don't have to go outside for a week - whether we've got electricity or not. Posted Image

     

    Just been on the bad weather forum and they said the center of the low is just off the north cornwall coast !!!!

     

    That is what I'd like to know - what is the pressure there? As it moves overland, it's supposed to drop further and the storm intensifies. You can doubt the reading but it's been spot on accurate in the past and it's now reading 978mb.

    Thanks that is quite worrying. I thought it was much further along. No idea what the current pressure is here. Barometer is downstairs and I still half asleep. Rain is relentless. Been watching our powerlines waiting around. Bugga me. An aircraft has just taken off!
