I think we've gotten used to it over the past month. Everything that was going to blow down or away already did weeks ago. It always was going to have to be exceptional for up here, and the way people down south were talking last night, I thought there might be a chance going by that and the way the charts looked......disappointed!

revised 10 o'clock chart has pressure back at 932mb gradient looks to have slightly closed though the initial 11 o'clock chart has it at 931mb and gradient still looks to be closing slowly

think we are done with the pressure minimum at 930mb so unless it drops lower I will only post revised charts from now on for pressure gradient

Currently 2.1 c and light snow showers. Very light wind at the moment but expect this to crank up a bit in an hour or so.  Winds don't look too fierce for here possibly gusting up to mid 60's so I will be getting off lightly compared to some of you folks, hope everyone stays safe.

Really getting windy here now, horizontal rain. Temp 3.6, baro.....well one WS says 945, another 940.3 and my aneroid baro on the wall says 1050. The pressure has dropped so low the needle is heading back around in an anti clockwise direction! Still got leccy so waiting for the daft Xmas films to start in the afternoon.....if we still have leccy then!

don't know how high the winds will get we will have to wait and see.

 

one thing we are missing that they lucked in with down south is PPN and squall lines as that's where the highest gusts last night in the south came from

Really extremely windy here, some fairly extreme gusts coming in but the average wind speed is high as well, trees bending in the wind. 3'C temp, dewpoint is at -0.5'C and the showers are of light rain / snow.

Rain on most of the web cams now. Temps rising by the looks of it so not expecting any snow out of this. Never mind another disappointment been the story of December. Hopefully January will deliver our winter.
