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

Strongest gusts for now across North Wales and NW England. 79mph gust at Aberdaron in NW Wales, 75mph at Capel Curig, 67mph gust at Shap in Cumbria.

Airmass loop in tweet below shows nicely the transition of Ophelia from hurricane to powerful extratropical storm

Getting really blustery here in Bucks. Currently at work, got the torch and generator instructions at the ready. The power seems to go off at the drop of a hat around these parts.

Quite! Hence my question but Met Office says 62mph earlier in Shawbury.

Yep, nonsense data methinks. 62mph is plausible, but nearly 80mph no chance IMO. Birmingham and Birmingham airport only got to low-mid 40s.

Accu-weather source for current and forecast data apparently. Maybe some rogue observation stations in there amongst the pucker ones !?!:cc_confused:

I was about to say that if there were 80mph gusts, the damage would have been newsworthy. But as it was Wolverhampton it would be difficult to tell the difference...

Ophelia is making her prescense known finally or not something is making a racket in the garden as windy as it has been all day. 

Making a racket in North Tyneside now.  Must be between 60 - 70 mph as the house is shaking.

I would guess that they are km/h values. Portland didn't see 68mph yesterday or since midnight. Max gust at Portland was 47mph yesterday. According to those stats, 68.4 mph was recorded in the last 4 hours, but 68.4 km/h would be 43mph, which makes more sense.

Nowhere near to that level down south relatively calm in comparison. 

I’d say strongest gusts here have reached 40 mph at most. The strongest of the winds are spreading into SW Scotland still parts of NW Wales experiencing gusts in the high 70s a right prolonged wallop, with sustained winds of 55 mph at Aberadon - must be a very exposed location.
