Any model or forecast I've looked at in the last ten minutes has the strongest winds from early lunchtime until mid to late afternoon. Do not assume cos it ain't windy yet that it won't get windy.

Nothing notably windy just yet. Just now the ground has a white dusting - sounds like hail in heavier bursts but looks like graupel and lighter spells it looks like light snow.
