i'm actually very cold now and beginning to shiver, despite being in bed, my shoulders and arms are out of the blankets so i've put my shawl on.Means the temperature must have dropped again.

 

The wind continues to make a swooshing noise, each time more prolonged.Can't hear any rain.

Lost power here in Biggin for about 20 mins.....amazing how more intense it all feels/sounds when there is nothing else going on. No television, no laptop, no light.  We have trees down and flooding in the lanes.  Love 'weather' however, getting a bot scary now :-(. Stay safe guys xx

Not much happening here apart from the odd 30mph gust, but driving along the M1 at 10pm was quite windy, the spray from the trucks was being blown a lot further back than usual!

Just up the hill in Bushey and I concur. It's windy and wet but no different to what we experienced this afternoon.

The increasing roar outside seems worse than that experienced here during the St Jude's Day Storm. Be glad of the calmer conditions and sunshine by Xmas Day.

 

Agreed, this storm is coming across far more powerful!

 

I worry for my mum though who is driving back in it :(

It might be where I am, but just been out for a walk, breezy, yes...gusty (a little) but nothing different from an autumn day? Very little rain as well?? I'm not going to complain as some are getting battered by the sounds of it. I did think we were going to get hammered here...maybe its lulling me into a false sense of security?Posted Image

Really? It's been blowing a gale here for a couple of hours and its pouring with rain. The wind is howling and there are some really strong gust. I'm only a few miles from you but I wouldn't fancy taking a walk right now. You must be made of stronger stuff than me.

Sounds as though it's considerably worse with you than here (about 25 miles North North West as the crow flies).  Windy but (thankfully nowhere near as bad as our friends further South.  Hope all are OK

OMG!!!!  This is my regular route. Drove down there back from Leeds yesterday and remarked to my guest "this bit will have a problem tomorrow"

Seriously though - didn;t think it would be THAT much of a problem.

 

Let's be careful out there!

I think I've worked out that a row of trees is protecting our house from the worst of it. Those trees are quite diagonal now and the houses on the other side of it are losing everything that isn't fastened down.

Yikes. .. conservatory roof emergency repairs done. Had to just bash in a few nails and brace it down. Panels were starting to lift. Velux window has lost its seal and rain is pouring into my bedroom, awning blown off over my front door. Fence down and roof tiles flying off. Merry Blinking Christmas to me. Blah

I'm with you. Garden fence now all over garden. Just been out there for 20 min, seriously scary weather, even blew me over at one point (andi'm hardly lightweight)! Horley, by Gatwick.

According to the weather station nearest to me, wind speed is currently around 20mph with 35-40mph gusts, so not that bad here.  I believe the St Jude storm was stronger, though not as long lasting.

 

Barometer currently reads 977 hPa

 

Going to take myself off to bed and get some sleep.  Sleep through anything me. :D

 

Stay safe everyone and I hope the damage isn't to great in the morning.
