caroline.gif Will be windy Weds night ahead of cold front across much of the UK but it is the curl around the occlusion on Thursday which is forecast to bring the stormy conditions. Then warnings for snow and ice across more of the UK in the NW flow as Caroline clears

Thanks Jo. I've been away from the forum for a few days and I'm busy catching up with the model thread. I'm so glad you posted cos you've saved me time wading through pages and pages. Looks like I'm safe from the worst of it, but at 600 ft it could be nasty.

Wonder if the Yellow warning might get extended through the Central Belt for the middle part of the day, not peak times but still look very lively late afternoon around the Forth. Hold onto your hats further north

I see TORRO have issued an interesting watch for the cold front surging SE tonight and tomorrow morning.

Talk of the perimiters being very similar to when a mass tornado outbreak occured in 1981.

One for the experts here to check out.

Putting aside all the snow lark this weekend and next week, storm Caroline may be associated with brief tornadoes, as of a similar type of system that correlates in some ways with a past system that passed over the uk.

Damn damn damn damn damn. This puts me right in the red area. Looking at the direction the house should shelter the stables to begin with, but as the wind swings round to more northerly the stable doors face right into it. Neddies might get a tad cold cos I only have half doors.

Isn't lunchtime Thursday when the winds are at their strongest? Why turf the kids out into that?

No idea what my top gust so far has been, but it was strong enough to bring down a tree in the front garden. It's currently precariously balanced against a neighbour's tree, uncomfortably close to the telephone line and only about 15 feet from my front window. Luckily it's tilted away from the house and the wind swinging more northerly will help it to stay against the neighbour's tree. Then if it goes, it should miss the phone line... I hope.

I hope you stay safe, Fiona, I know what it's like living in a rural area - alone sometimes.

No, not for Shetland, I would imagine they had a lot of advice. Worst winds for Shetland through Thurs afternoon, then still risk of severe gales overnight and part of Friday.

I've just had a rather violent squall which brought the balanced tree further down and scared the poop outta the horses. I'd put 'em in the field while I mucked out and just as I finished the wind went mad, accompanied by very heavy sleet. Horses came galloping to the gate and yelled at me to bring them back in. Being a softy I did and they're now tucked up in their jimjams with big piles of haylage. Never seen 'em look so relieved! Horses really don't like high winds, makes 'em very unpredictable and spooky.
