    I'm thinking the tail end of this Atlantic storm could bring more mini tornadoes, severe hail storms and some more thundersnow?

    I was thinking, ~ .. I wonder what a snownado looks like after hearing the reports of a tornado in Pembrokshire the other day amongst the thundersnow-storms!? 

     

    define "mini" tornado

    With a combination of a weather bomb & sting jet overnight, I hope it doesn't cause to much damage IMBY    I'm sorry I just couldn't resist 

    Just like what I done with the storm last week I've made up a map showing the top wind speeds according to the Met Office on their Weather Map to give a quick and easy view on the wind speeds,  

    Sod the storm, it's the imminent Ice Age I'm concerned about!

    define "mini" tornado

    Well according to BBC Wales.. a mini tornado damaged 24 peoples homes.. ~ personally anyone that witnessed that probably wouldn't consider it mini at all.. :p ~ So I refuse to define.. as I guess that's perception :p

    I have to admit this one sounds the worst from the few we've had recently.

     

    Sounds like the roofs going to be torn off our hangar.

    Same over here, Mountain Road closed and expecting gusts of 70 to 80 mph between now and early evening

    Yes, the winds should peak roughly between 2-6pm, veering more westerly over the next few hours then start easing off but remaining strong into the night for a time.

    Bit of overhype, for here anyway, perhaps its the direction the winds coming from. It's not even budging the tiles on the roof. The other storms we've had over the past week have taken off quite a few!

    Picked up quite sharply over the last 15 minutes, gusts around the 50-60 mark I'd estimate. Our local weather station, Hawarden has recorded a gust of 48 but we're much more exposed and 350 feet higher.
