Strongest winds since the St Judes storm in these parts I would say.

I would not have minded if it was an actual fire, but to do a fire drill in these conditions (gusting to 60mph) is foolish and dangerous. Then making us students stand under some trees when large bits of branch have come off in the area. If one had come down...

UAE17 has landed

:good:

2h30m after starting the descent from FL400 flight EK17 to Manchester finally has touched down at Gatwick - amazing amount of extra fuel on that baby.

I travel a lot on planes and every time there is turbulence I feel like in a roller coaster...but with those winds that would be worse than the Wild Mouse in Blackpool

Recorded 71 mph so far. So the local forecast is a bit off :)

Seems to have calmed down in the past half hour here, however it is still gusty with reports still coming in of problems to my East.

Lady who died in Wolverhamton was apparently hit by a Shop sign being blown off the side of a shop.

On our A320's we say a tonne of fuel per half hour of holding. Not much fuel used in the descent (N1's back at idle), starts to drink it when in the hold. A fairly heavy aircraft won't be thrown around like an empty A320, which can sometimes feel like flying a crisp packet on a windy day!

  • Showers in the north and west again ahead of a hot end to the week

    A weather front will bring showery rain to western and northern regions today, as those further southeast enjoy warm sunny spells. Heat then starts to build for the end of the week with 35c on the cards in the southeast. Read the full update here

    Heat building - But not before a northwestern soaking

    The weather has thrown up two things to focus on during the coming hours and days. First the rain across the north and especially northwest of the UK, with some heavy, persistent downpours today in western Scotland in particular. Second, the build of heat later this week from the south, with temperatures forecast to rise into the mid-thirties, for some at least, by Friday. Read the full update here
