Looks like that doesn't it! Hope someone with a lot of knowledge here can update us about that :bomb:

An eye of some sorts has reformed as others have mentioned. Cannot remember if I have seen this before...

I don't think so, the dry air is circulating inwards at a lower level to those high cloud tops and it's giving the illusion of an eye. Bit difficult to explain without a bunch of illustrations. Essentially 2d pic doesn't always depict what is happening in 3d.

Long time lurker, but thought I post from the amber warning zone. Bright red sun and dirty yellow clouds here about an hour ago. Air felt thick with a smell of burning and made me feel a bit wheezy. Despite all the wind, I guess the air quality is quite poor. Now we have brilliant sunshine, scattered hazy sunshine and blue skies. The wind is quite strong, and being right on the coast, we are used to that. But for us, the real wind doesn't start until much later today. About the same time as high tide. Does anyone know if a storm surge goes ahead of the system? I mean, is it still to come and if so, when?

The bunting!!! It must be serious to snap that! Haha sorry, but in all seriousness, it should be picking up in the next couple of hours.

I've been watching that bunting since the day before yesterday. I'd become emotionally invested in it. It was my equivalent of Hector the Palm Tree. Even in the dark, because of the street lights, you could see the bunting flap around.This morning it began doing loop-de-loops as the sky cleared over it; one minute it was hanging limply, the next it was straight up in the air, then to the left, to the right. I even heard the"SNAP!" Now that's weird... just typed Stereo MC lyrics... and I saw them in Cork supporting U2 on the Zooropa tour.

I nocied the burning smell too, I wonder what caused that?

Edit: as suggested elsewhere: forest fires in Portugal and Spain.

I'm pretty sure the sky turning yellow is the met office trying out a new warning system after some backlash.

Things deteriorating here in galway, drenching rain, wind blowing strong to gale force, pressure 982.2mb and bombing.

Arrived in west wales, things getting pretty rocky here. Debris from trees everywhere on the roads. Got my kestrel 3000 with me, so will try and get some readings. 

Been out the loop for 4 hours, is west wales still due to get 70-80 mph gusts?

cheers
