Is anyone else starting to think the low is deeper than predicted? Now -3.6hr 986.7 in Poole and its not even here yet! Wind really picking up!

 Well the Low is there, the strongest winds to impact the southwest are occurring now and over the next 2-3 hours. Then they will begin to abate.

some really pathetic posts by those not affected by this storm on this thread

I totally agree. Here in Poole the winds are increasing in strength noticeably and this is only the pre cursor. The rain is relentless and my garden is becoming flooded.I am surrounded by high conifers which are swaying ominously. If our friends in the north think this is a joke then they are sadly misinformed.

So am I right in saying what I have here now is not the worst? As in is there more to come?

 

The worst will come in the early hours in Cornwall.

Is anybody doing an all nighter?

I'll see how the next couple of hours go. If it looks interesting, then I'd be more than happy to!

Rumours across twitter from a number of weather accounts saying Scilly has recorded 100mph gust. This picture also I have come across. Showing 108mph 1/2 an hour ago!

Definitely, my flippancy has stopped, even with my limited understanding I think this has the potential to be rather nasty in a few hours time.

Lets view the NAE

Wind picking up in Dorchester, we've had persistant rain fall for a few hours now i'd say at least 20mm

A bit OTT that comment like no?  We are just having a laugh to try and lighten the mood - I have not read one comment that would suggest people should be ashamed of northerners etc etc 

 

On another note the met do have more knowledge available to them so I would be more inclined to trust them.  Even in the event of an epic fail all these comments that they should be ashamed etc are no good - people need to not get the personal disappointment mixed up with a non event, and the fact the met office are there to warn the public not ensure it happens...

The phrase 'having a laugh' is usually used when other people are being ridiculed, belittled etc. I thought this was supposed to be about what is happening with the potential storm, if people are in areas not affected by it then why bother to comment?

you have to remember scilly is out in the open and right in the firing line with no protection the western isles up here can have large gusts while the main land don't see anything near it

Keep safe man Posted Image   for the record the northerners don't think that it's a joke - personally though I don't buy that there's 15 million in the south and only 1.5 million in the north so that's why it has to be back to back news coverage.  It is just as dangerous for people in the central belt and affects their lives as much as yours that's all some people are saying.  We are really just amazed at some of the terminology used i.e megastorm etc I just can't get my head around it - however if it turns out to be very nasty then I just hope that there's no loss of life - property can be replaced.  To counter that argument does it lessen the impact in tornado prone states when they have them regularly in the US?  Should we say "oh well they are used to them so it's not that big a story"?

 

I will say though in the BBC/Sky defence that if this turns out as bad as suggested then it has highlighted the knock on effect up country of severe delays etc suppose it's better to be over hyped than not hyped at all and people caught unaware?

No I doubt it as I have to be up at 7 but I'll stay awake until 1pm or later if things take a turn for the worst which I kind if didn't think would happen after the downgrades......Jesus just had a really strong gust of wind and the oak tree across the way moved like I've not seen it do in a long while, if the storms not even hit Cornwall yet I'm worried....😳 I'm in Exeter, Devon
