    Already happened here with the showers earlier this afternoon yet to the north they stayed intact.

    Getting gusty here but I think more convective gusts so far. Plenty of rain too...

    Yawn.

    I can imagine. It's a great vantage point during stormy weather. I'd quite like to be fishing down at Chesil right now.

    It's the complete opposite here, breezy, with the occasional 30mph gust. It was windier during a shower this afternoon.

    Have you had any flood sirens go off yet?

    I've only lived here since April I'm up the top of island not heard anything but not sure if I would hear them up here. As for storms our flat has a nice sea view that last big storm was great me and the daughter just stood at the window with lights off. It was just a constant strobe.

    Rather uneventful passing of storm atiyah to be honest, although it did eventually track somewhat north of it's original projected route I think. Forecast suggests still some gusty conditions through the English Channel. Although Portland did manage to be in the top 5 gusts overnight. Here's the top 20 gusts, and we have quite few of the places taken locally...

    Wind through the early hours kept up with 15-20mph and plenty of 25-32 mph gusts, a few 35mph ones.
    Seemed to have calmed down a bit now, 10-15mph, with plenty of 20-25mph gusts.
    Had a little rain at 5am, 0.2mm.
    Nicely brightening up now.

    Looking like more and stronger wind Tuesday and Thursday. Forecasts showing 40-52 mph gusts for most of the day on Tuesday and 30-43mph Thursday.

    I was out for 8hrs last night driving around the Cornwall coast line and managed to record a gust of 81mph at Lands End, a gust of 89mph at Perranporth Beach, a gust of 72 at Lizard, a gust of 69 at Port Issac and a gust of 73 at Boscastle. All using my digital anemometer. 

    Surprising the sustained wind speeds were lower than I thought they would be so extreme differences between sustained and gusts. Recorded anywhere between 25mph and 40mph sustained winds.

    Utterly hilarious! Every forecast and app has a dry day for this region yet here we are just after 11am and it is pouring down! Plus there have been plenty of showers around all morning!

    Not much happened here over night.

    Highest gust was yesterday was outside of the warning period, during a shower, 41mph. Highest gust inside of the warning period was 37mph.

    Tuesday is showing far higher gusts than yesterday, but no warning out for down here.

    So, I was under a yellow warning for wind yesterday with forecast speeds of 28 - 41mph. Tomorrow, the winds are forecast to be 50mph + for around 6 hours, with the peak of those winds around evening rush hour, and no yellow warning?!

    No consistency whatsoever.

    Yeah quite low wind speeds for most inland regions too but excluding the far south, southwest and Ireland ofcourse worth noting a station at Weybourne got to 60mph mid morning.

    A couple of stations near me recorded 36 and 39mph around mid morning. Just 36 hours earlier Arpege showed 75-85mph here ?

    you gotta just laugh at output sometimes. ?

    The same models that where more correct for last night are showing 45-55mph tomorrow for places inland but along the coast 60mph is shown. I think you'll see above that 41mph tomorrow. ?

    A frosty night, well up until 2am that was, then the wind started in from the SW and the the frost disappeared rapidly. Now warm and breezy oh and cloudy to go with it. Temperature 9.6°C, with the wind gusting @ 18mph from the SW.
