The disruption this has caused really shows the difference between

 

70mph on exposed coasts/50mph inland

 

and

90mph on coasts and 70mph inland

 

The figures I am using may not be spot on but you get the idea.

 

A lot of disruption here today, and a lot of people concerned about getting home from work, especially with Briton Ferry bridge being closed.

 

Could do with a spell of boring weather after recently.

Here in Milford Haven I personally recorded a gust of 52.9 mph which for me is high. However the Cleddau bridge recorded a gust of 94mph!  So many roads closed due to trees being down.
