The coldest upper air is this weekened but looks like snow showers only in the north.

But I don`t believe whats on TV.

As for next week more cold air comes in but its got a far too long atlantic reach west/SW flow wet sleety/snow showers,maybe dryer snow showers.

Next Thursday day to watch for storm force winds,first major storm of the winter south,if it comes off.

But the way the jet is speeding anything could come.

Wow! Winds have gone crazy in the last hour, everything's blowing all over the place outside and it's really howling. Gusts of 55mph at the moment here in Cardiff.

Windy but nothing special here nothing above 40mph this week in fact.

Which weather station recorded the 55mph gust in Cardiff please Clair as it seems high?

Highest I can see 50mph at Rhoose which is more exposed than the city itself:

Horrible out there. The noise is terrible. West facing bifold doors don't help. Reminiscent of last winter I have to say. We had the tiles storm batterned after losing several last year on 3 seperate occasions.

Its a good test this evening that's for sure.

Hi all! Blowy night hey? I'm not sure whether I'm going crazy, but was just having a cigarette out of my window (!) and noticed two big flashes of what seemed like green sheet lightning. I'm fairly certain the conditions aren't conducive for lightning though am I right? It was on top of a hill called Pen-y-lan, west of Newport overlooking Cardiff. Wondering if you guys had any ideas? Maybe a pylon getting damaged in the wind?

there are some heavy power cables going over pen-y-lan ,maybe one has come down causing the flash you saw .

This wind is tremendously strong. Got to be close to 70mph gusts up here. Noise is incredible, bins flying around the street - and not food bins - large rubbish bins - bit frightening.

 

Incredibly mild though unless you are in one of the strong gusts. Just imagine what it was like in Scotland last night - we are quite a few mph short of some of their gust strengths.

 

Liking the look of colder incursions appearing in a lot more of the outputs next couple of weeks.

Very nice NW flow with plenty of wintry showers mixed in the flow into Friday looks just as good h500slp.pngh850t850eu.png

I thought that would be the case! For a split second, I was hoping it was some rare weather phenomenon I had witnessed! ;)

My regular look at the Alps for next week has all the GFS charts for next week as normal, with alternating Polar and Tropical Maritime flows next week over NW Europe next week including over Wales.

For us, definitely wintry potential in there (especially for hills as normal), but one thing for certain certainly not boring weather

 

Out there tonight - breezy but I think other people on here are having it worse than here.

The way the wind is by us both I don't think I would risk it - could be dangerous- admittedly you would be unlucky to be hit by one - but why chance it?

I opened the front door and it nearly blew off its hinges. Definitely stay indoors and stay safe people. You never know what will be flying around out there tonight, might even spot a flying cow or 2.
