    Before Lorenzo arrives, looks like some nasty weather out west already. I decoded this image using a Software Defined Radio, Quadrifilar Helicoidal antenna at 38ft tuned to 137Mhz, a low noise am

    Going to be a lot of changes over the next two days. Media sleep waking and missing "killer Hurricane to savage UK winds up to 160 mph" headlines or Hurricane to bring record breaking winds. Shoppers

    Worst of the winds overnight for western/NW Ireland, warnings lapse at 06 Fri but still looks windy for W/SW Ireland during Friday morning. Power outages are likely to be a problem for the Republic of IReland. @ESBNetworks  Bands of heavy rain this evening and night reaching across Britain. Improving Friday morning for Northern Ireland as rain heads towards Wales and winds ease.

    A much quieter picture everywhere by Friday evening as the low heads off over central Europe.

    The death throes of Lorenzo as it leaves the baroclinic zone of the jet and starts to fill rapidly. albeit it still has a few puffs left with a fair amount of rain.

    During this evening and overnight the low that is ex Lorenzo will fill and move east and be over Northern Ireland by 0600 whilst the associated frontal systems traverse the country. The main band of rain which is already effecting western regions (very grotty down here) will continue to move E/NE through the rest of the afternoon and evening, with some heavy pulses over Scotland and the north of England, before generally clearing to the east by 0100  But with the low moving across Ireland further heavy rain in the north of this region will occur.

    The winds will also pick up over N. Ireland this afternoon and early evening and then later in the night into tomorrow morning around south Wales and south west England. Personally I wouldn't take these gust charts too literally

    Not too much change on the UKV 12z, 80mph gusts looking possible close to the west coast of Ireland overnight. 

    ukv22.png ukv33.png

    Tomorrow morning up to early afternoon looks like the peak time for gusts of 50mph or so in the SW.

    Love these sat pics, reminds me of when I was doing it way back in early the days of Netweather. Unfortunately my decoding unit overheated and kind of melted itself though!

    ex-Lorenzo looks to have died a quick death. If anything the low pressure behind it looks more potent.

    It is remarkable how something of the size of wind field and strength (cat5) can become such a damp squib even before Pits Sheffield Storm shield is activated.

    The other low pressure and the jetstream have certainly been active in Lorenzo's swift demise.

    Amazing to think what was a cat 5 hurricane a few days ago came over here today as drizzle and a light breeze.

    Was chatting to a ship captain by chance in a pub last night who came up from Portugal, then docked at Plymouth and then across to Greenwich late Wednesday. He said that the sea was terrible around Plymouth, couldn't get out of the harbor, high waves, ended up in only 2 meters of water and almost ran aground on a sandbank, worse conditions he as ever encountered anywhere he said! Seemed genuine, northern lad quite young looking to be a skipper with a crew of 17 members I thought though, just can't work out how come things could possibly have been that bad as the storm seems to have hit further west and north of the West Country.:cc_confused:
