    What is amazing me is the length of time the gusts remain at 60mph. Way into the early hours from 6pm.

    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

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

    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 ?

    I’ve been keeping an eye on weather around 23 years and don’t think I’ve ever seen the entire country under a yellow warning for wind..

    They haven’t had the current colour coded warning system for 23 years though !

    What is unusual is the duration of the strongest winds, 6-9 hours is a prolonged bout for us down here!

    Perhaps we could have a South Coast Storm Party meetup ?.

    Only joking of course but I might be tempted to take the short drive to my favoured viewing spots at Rock a Nore in Hastings and just a mile or so away on the seafront in St Leonards on Sea. Checking my camera batteries in the morning to hopefully get some good photos.

    Well GFS seems to be increasing the forecast wind speeds rather than decreasing them nearer the event - opposite of what is usually the case.  Norwich now peaking at 41mph gusting 75mph at 3pm - about the time the cold front moves through. Pretty unusual windspeeds for this part of the world. It will be interesting to see what the sustained speeds actually are. I find anything over 40mph and you start to hear that 'roar' which is synonymous of damaging storms.

    Does anyone know what time gusts will peak in London? I'm seeing different things with the met office before noon and GFS more like 3 or 4pm.

    Met Office video forecast going for 55-65 mph gusts (70-80 coasts). Very windy but hardly the scale which some on here are talking about. You’d think the apocalypse was coming!

    Morning all,

    Up early to have Breakfast with "Septic" (Wife, Colette), before she started a 12 Hour shift, in Chislehurst.

    TIMBO Day (Mon.10th), continues to catch the eye:

                        GFS 00z (t66)                                                     GFS 00z PPN (t66)           image.thumb.png.fc573e7894abf1905c2d3268c4115eaa.png               image.thumb.png.69552c6ddc974f15d7f0950402c715a6.png

    The Americans have a Trough running towards the S.E., on the very strong Westerly flow, post Ciara.

    Showers, probably Wintry in nature, close to our Region. 

                     UKMO 00z (t48)                                                                      

    image.thumb.png.2766accb371f213071ac7036dad29af2.png             

     Don't fancy mine and STEVE M.'s chances for a bit of natural confetti, on Valentine's Day. Although ECM says maybe but very much, out on it's own.              

                    UKMO 00z (t144)                                                      ECM (t144)

     image.thumb.png.7672589d6c01dc816ad6c4f48def9720.png            image.thumb.png.9627208788483cc6426ec3de0499d960.png

    A Day later, and it looks like a forlorn hope for SEPTIC PEG, on our Wedding Anniversary.

    NO repeat of the Snow Grains we saw on 15th Feb, 2010!! :nonono: 
                       ECM 00z (t168)                

    image.thumb.png.bba02bd7174836f33234d19f632dcd10.png

    A similar story for LOTTIEKENT, a not very inspiring 16th Feb, snow-wise. With those kind of Synoptics, she's very unlikely to reward those Members who gave her the "Virtual" Wager support, in the Betting side of the Competition.

                      ECM 00z (t192)

    Regards,

    Tom.  :hi: ❄️

    From a veteran of the 1987 campaign, a sobering reminder that back then we had 70mph winds gusting to 100mph. Tomorrow looks bad but not THAT bad.

    Agreed but 70 miles an hour during the daylight hours is damn dangerous. The 100 miles per hour was at 2-4am in the morning and yes I am also a veteran of the great storm. If the wind is as strong as they say then that will be a significant storm.

    In the 87 storm damaged caused was quite variable. Some areas completely trashed and others less so. 

    Remember well looking out our bedroom window to see mature trees falling everywhere. We had no electricity  for nearly a week.  Took a car battery into work and charged it up so we could watch TV for a couple of hours each night on a little portable. Fortunately we did not rely on electricity for heating.  

    No mobile phone nor did the landline work. So there was one benefit.

    Everyone itching to go all electric to save the planet? Always nice in these circumstances to have Plan B if you can.

    AMBER WARNING FOR MOST OF england just announced

    65 mph gusts will definitely cause damage in inland areas. Avg windy winter days here are 40-50 mph so we are well above "normal" territory.

    Plus some models have been suggesting 70-75 mph inland - so it's the met office that have been downplaying it, rather than people here over exaggerating.

    Has London/Home counties ever had an amber warning for wind? I'm struggling to think of a time it has happened before.

    I was thinking that too??!!
