    their armoured vehicles are being made ready-

    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

    Quite a surreal end to my day at work seeing that sky go so dark like the heavens where about to unleash a torrent but remarkably hardly a drop of rain as of yet although the wind has got up in the last couple of hours and I also got a brief glimpse of that red sun, honestly about an hour or so ago I witnessed the most impressive looking sky I've ever seen. It looked apocalyptic like something from a horror movie, dark clumpy clouds and day seemed to turn into night in minutes with an orange glow probably caused by the Saharan dust and the sun behind the cloud, remember those clouds rolling in during the film Independence Day it was not dissimilar to that and the other thing I've noticed about today here in Essex is how ridiculously warm it has been, I was actually sweating earlier felt more like August not mid-October and what with hurricane-force winds on the other side of the country rather like the 16th October 30 years ago today will not be forgotten in a hurry and what's more is it looks like more stormy weather is on the horizon for later on this week.

    To be fair met o did upgrade warnings to amber

     

    True but they said 55-65mph widely with gusts up to 80mph but Aberdaron just recorded 90mph, picking up here now too, probably gusting around 55mph

    Third person has died =( another falling tree on car. While us enthusiasts study learn and indeed take some excitement from this weather, we must spare a thought for the people caught up init. 

    Stay safe all and ride it out now, hopefully most are on there way or home now for the evening lots of people leaving early in the effected areas.

    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...

    Gone the other way here was 15c up to mid-afternoon then went up to 18.1c and back down to 17.6c now

    Glengormley, Northern Ireland at 5.00pm.  Not sure if it’s to get worse or not and not sure what the wind speeds are in this area at the minute but quite surreal to experience. Few of those trees are down now.

    It's dammed if you do ,dammed if you don't for the met office in these situations,don't think they could have done anymore other than perhaps upgrading the warnings a little earlier.

    Yep, agree. Aberdaron is a very exposed station. Certainly hasn't warranted a red warning anywhere in the UK today. If we were seeing what Ireland has then definitely.

    I noted this yesterday and have noted umpteen times before the Met Office Re grossly inept at alerting public in Wales of possible severe weather...schools like Ireland should have closed today across large swathes of Western Wales but didn't until last minute due to lack of info about this system! 

    Frankly apalling but not unexpected!

    I'm in Belfast and I have seen worse wind wise. Just a typical autumn/winter severe gale here IMO.

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
