Judging by xcweather currently the SW is just about dodging a bullet regarding the strongest gusts with most in the region getting 50 to 60mph peak gusts. Meanwhile Southern Ireland isn't so fortunate with winds there gusting around the 70 up to 80mph range. This risk moving NE during the day, tell folk to batten down those hatches over the coming hours if you know anybody in the NW and Northern England.

I haven't seen winds outside my house like this for a long time.

What we have is disruptive enough so I hate to think of the damage that could be felt for our northern cousins later. From a selfish point of view, thank god it isn't us in the red warning.

Will be interesting to see the official stats later. I expect 50/60mph gusts have been recorded widely across the SW. No doubt in excess of 70mph to come for exposed locations.

Expect to start hearing reports of trees down etc soon.

Pretty wretched here but the noticeable thing is the lack of rain again, despite what precip charts progged. I wonder how they are generated?

I've set my hi alarm for 40mph gusts, been going off a few times, gusts are higher but it's down to the location of the station. :)

No PB, it will have died down quite considerably by then as I understand, but there will be debris and flooding all over the place.

thanks GTLTW.. Was getting a wee bit worried. Ill take the motorway all the way back so hopefully it should be ok. Sat on a car park currently waiting for a meeting. Car is rocking.. And not from my stereo this time! ;)

Had to go out in the storm as had to get electric a very unpleasant trip it was too, Heavy rain which i think contained hail as hurt when hit in the face, was almost knocked over by a very strong gust, came home to more fence panels down and a tree in the field is also down, take care all and stay safe.

Don't forget there is also a dedicated Storm thread which can be found at the link below. They are currently some scary reports out there it must be said.
