    i REALLY hope so, but knowing my luck it will end up going North of me or be a no show, im still quite new to this, how many days in advance can it realistically be "nailed on"?  like is it a good probability already? 

    usually starts to be a good bet under 144 hours

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

    Looking forward to my trip to #Ireland

    Interesting to note.. Looking at my solar data, at exactly midday, I recorded 9W/m² of solar energy. That's around the equivalent output just before sunset.

    Remarkable, how did that compare to the 2015 solar eclipse, if you have the data?

    The strange light seems rather boding. Seemed quite appropriate for me as my brother died last night. I know he was more than a little annoyed. We all were

    Very sorry about your brother Snipper. Hope you and your family will be alright in the future.

    Power just went out twice in past half hour, will most likely go out fully later. Think worst is yet to come for north louth area.

    I'm at work in central London.  I popped outside to take some photos of the sky earlier, but my camera on my phone didn't do it justice.  The pictures above are exactly how the sky went - really eerie!

    Correction to my earlier post - I definitely have not seen a sky like that before...I'm guessing that Matt Damon might feel quite at home!:D

    Mapantz good to see you around still. Yes it was most certainly a very interesting morning. I think for us, Thurs and Friday are looking interesting..

    Unfortunately, I didn't have a solar rad sensor back then. I'd love to know the readings myself! I'm sure someone has some data from around then. It really has made for an interesting day, despite not being directly impacted by the storm. :)

    Could the key be is that it is a dry cold front?

    If there was rain it would have washed out the pollutants? It would be interesting if there were just spots of rain falling with it, could be blood rain.

    Some "sandy" rain must have fallen.. earlier tweet from Midlands Today weather presenter..

    Wind has increased here (Cornwall) in the last few hours some ferocious gusts but sun is still managing to peek through the increasing clouds.

    Winds starting to pick up in the last hour, very gusty, the trees desperately trying to cling onto their summer foliage.  Leaves flying everywhere, can't imagine what it's like in the Irish sea right now.

    There was a few spots of rain but not enough to identify if this was the case .

    With all the weird skies going on, completely missed how much the temperature has dropped this afternoon. Was about 21c at lunchtime, now about 15c. Back to the jeans I think...
