Dunstable got a good snow cover but melted in the afternoon. Hills around the area did ok. I drove to the highest point in the Chiltrens to have my snow fix. Some photos from Wendover Wood this mornin

Nice bit of snow here this morning, so that means it won’t go down as one of the worst winters I can remember but only by the skin of its teeth . Photos below ?

Shower cloud lit up nicely by the low sun earlier this evening north of Heathrow where I work.

Seeing a few reports of trees down in country roads and then there’s been a lorry blown over on the main road out of Dover. The road does have a fair bit of height on it as it comes up over near the cliffs but it’s not something that happens often.

If its the jubilee way they normally close it during high winds I thought.

Highest Gust so far here 72mph, that was an hour ago, seems to have moderated some what, since it changed to a wsw direction, which we are sheltered from. Now awaiting the squalls.

Squall was nothing special the wind isn't increasing much, might be slowing even, was told the main event is late afternoon but starting to doubt it.

It's coming - check a radar.

I have that lot up north will be arriving in the evening, I reckon the winds might have peaked in my location however this might just be a lull before later.

Really not too bad here and we have had far worse from non named storms in the past. Scores low on the binometre too, one bin blown over into the street and that is empty.Think it's time to scrap naming storms.

Extremely strong winds here, trees and branches down.  Looks like someone has been injured by a fallen tree with fire brigade and ambulance in attendance!  Fingers crossed they're OK.

Where abouts is this? I am going out shortly to visit & check on my 90 year old uncle who lives alone in Writtle and getting him some shopping in.

Kind Regards

Dave

It wasn’t the Jubilee Way Alexis, it’s the A20 going towards Folkestone just past the Capel turn off

Very strong wind gusts here. I went to Galley Hill and had coffee in the De La Warr. The wind has only strengthened since then, with some truly wild gusts across Bexhill. My fence is nearly destroyed...

Picture provided barely does the scene justice.

Ah OK makes sense, there are plenty of crosswind warning signs along that stretch though, so may be it doesn't happen often because, the hgv driver take heed.

The wind here in Rye has picked up massively it’s quite scary some of the gusts we have been getting.
