I'm aiming to be here all night but the several glasses of whiskey this evening may put a stop to that.

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?

 

 

Just because someone doesn't live in an affected area does not mean we cant comment - pretty useless argument that really

106mph in Isles of Scilly?! Can anyone verify or is it a glitch?Wind has suddenly started to pick up a bit and it's raining heavily in Exeter

It is a glitch, I've reset it now.  For the last few months the station here has been giving false readings when the wind gets over 50 knots, hopefully we will get it sorted soon.

The true value would be more like 55-60 knots in the gusts, we had about 10 minutes of strong wind. Its dropped back down now but still gusting to 40 knots. Pressure down to 982.2 mb, still dropping.

if this storm is predicted to exit over the wash area does anyone think we might get a small battering in skegness?? or will be away from the strong winds?

Just my input, I agree that if this storm was in the north there wouldn't be even half the news coverage on it, it's just because it is in a much more densely populate area (Southern England) however it still has the potential to cause structural damage and bring trees down. Have fun but keep safe to all you that will be affected.

If it is deepening, perhaps more than we had thought, I understand they then have a tendency to turn left .Are any more senior peeps on board who can comment on the current track of Jude,and is it deepening or as expected?

 

the more senior peeps may well be off in the regionals, but my regional  is currently  inhabited by newbies,with under  10  posts(yet post count  rising rapidly) talking nonsense.

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

Very true! However if true that is still an extreme wind reading for Isles of Scilly

you mods on this forum must have the patience of saints Posted Image

seems so many people are slamming the news coverage and the actions taken but have clearly no listened to a word of it, or read any of the proper informative posts on here. Writing the storm off before its even got started. Who knows what will happen is plain crazy imo. It's mother nature and will do whatever it wants despite what people say, and all coverage have forecast that its not likely to get going until gone midnight even though its getting wild already in some places. I was looking forward to spending a few hours with like minded people but unfortunately the minority are definitely spoiling things. 

 

Anyway raining steadily here, and still quite calm but a good few hours before its forecast to reach this part of the country. 

 

Sad to hear they have called of the search for that young boy :( Sensible though. Thoughts are with his family.

Can we get back to finding out what is happening then? Most posts from outside of the south have been sniping and of no use whatsoever.

80 knots is 92mph.. I haven't seen any models indicate that.

Sky news have just reported that the MET have predicted gusts at Heathrow up to 80kts.

Cargo holds cannot be opened with winds over 40kts.

 

Lots of planes could end up grounded tomorrow morning!

Yes, it would turn left, there is a suggestion that it is deepening later than expected however.
