@101_North you might want to leave the bike at home and walk to work that morning.

Where were you with that advice yesterday? Just about killed me dragging the extra mince pies back up the road in a gale after work ????

If anyone uses oil for their central heating, Scottish Fuels have a promotion running.

€30 off orders January- April.

Quote Code WIN30

Might be handy should a cold snap appear.

Currently 12C here with strong SW winds. Had to stick the bins in the garage as they were starting to move around. Peak winds are forecast around 2pm with 50mph gusts.

Central belt (east central anyway) appears to have escaped the worst for now?   Slight wind is all.  10.6c/SSW/10mph

Got the soup pot bubbling away. Lighting the fire soon, got knitting and books to hand, torches too. Cleaned, trimmed wick and filled oil lamps. Nothing else I can do. Bring it! ?️?️?

Blowing a gale up here, coming right in the front windows, from the south west I think. Heavy drizzle. All ready here too mistyQ for possible powercuts.

Wet and windy day here so far with a top gust of 50mph the same as yesterday. Out in the Western Isles I've been told Benbecula airport reported 74mph and Barra airport 75mph gusts this morning but again yesterday they had gusts similar to that which had no weather warnings out for wind.

A few trees have come down between Keig and Whitehouse around Alford. I also noticed a few trees hanging against other trees - care required 

Temperature driving across Tillyfourie was 14C about 20 minutes ago.

Wind picking up here a bit in Falkirk. Thoroughly miserable day all told, was pitch black when my S1 son walked down for the bus.

Quite tame really where i am, top gusts around 50 - 55mph but mostly in the 40s.Every 'stormy' spell over the last year or so has been watered down quite a bit by the time it arrives.

The wind has picked up here again just after 4.30pm with gusts according to the local weather station just under 50mph. The Western Isles had a windy afternoon with 81mph being the highest gust reported out there at Barra airport.
