The rain does exaggerate the strength of the wind as it smashes against things. This is a good 30-50% weaker in terms of wind gusts than 1987 and 20-30% on 2000. So yes it is very strong but you have to bear in mind in 2000 and 1987 driving rain didn't add to the effect.

I drove back from Charlwood from our choir party back to Reigate an hour or so ago and that was some if the most difficult driving conditions - a hovercraft would have been more useful!

The River Mole was coming across the road at Sidlow Bridge on the A217! :(

Whilst the wind gusts are not really out of the ordinary for many of us in our region, it's the sheer duration of this storm that is noteworthy. Apart from a brief lull here earlier this evening the wind has been howling here for over 12 hours now.

This is close as we can get to the burns day storm I think. Truly amazed by this one and winds are def still increasing here. I have a feeling there is an awful lot left in this yet.
