Quite boring up here so far.Winds peaked at about 55mph between 5 - 7pm, heavy persist rain could be more of a problem as it's been constant for 7 hours now.

A surfer missing in Sussex has been found alive. Great. Now they can send the moron a bill for the callout for his stupidity.  

You wont be lurking much longer if you are up on a roof tommorow 

Even doors are getting windy ?

Maybe someone could explain to me, why with Amber Weather warnings in force with hurricane force winds expected to reach their peak during tomorrow afternoon. 3 televised football matches are due to take place :

 

Premier League

4.30pm - Manchester CityvWest Ham United

2pm - Sheffield UnitedvAFC Bournemouth

Sky Bet Championship

1.30pm - MillwallvWest Bromwich Albion

Is the weather going to avoid those areas? Surely this is fool hardy and dangerous simply in the pursuit of money?

It is strange isn't it. I expect most of them to be called off tomorrow morning, there's no way you can play in these conditions. All Belgian and Dutch top flight games have already been postponed.

I said the same about the PL games in the PL thread on Friday I think surely these games should be called off.

I guess £10million or whatever it is per TV game is a gamble worth taking unless health and safety folk step in.

I've questioned why the junior leagues near Burton havnt been postponed, Grandson is a star and I've provided all the info....

I expect a morning cancellation when Grandparents are already fighting their way there to look after the siblings...

89mph on my roof mounted station in Dinorwic North West Wales. I’m a camera man for the BBC and ive seen my fair share of extreme environments, without exaggeration its like a hurricane out there. Rain is very heavy and very persistent. 

My house is 977ft ASL

Not the worst i’ve seen here mind....yet

Out of interest what sort of extreme environments?

Nice one Andy, I’m from Deiniolen (but live in Cardiff now). Both Deiniolen & Dinorwig get their fair share of extreme weather - looking forward to your weather reports!

Arctic mostly and high altitude.  But I have a couple of USA hurricanes under my belt. Also camp 2 Everest. 

My favourite place to be is, by far, within the Arctic circle.

Daaaaaaaamn that wind is pickin’ up.

Tonight is a little like the summer, where I sleep with the window open, in the summer in the hope of thunder waking me, tonight it’s so I can hear the howl of the wind

 

All being well I’ll be off to the beach later for a battering

It was quite odd walking home at 11:30pm to hear the higher gusts which must have been around 5000ft or higher, sounding like a high-pitched whistle. Something i've not heard in a while and a ominous sign that once those winds hit ground-level in a few hours time, the damage reports will start coming in.

Relatively calm here on the Wirral.

Except for your festering sore incubating in the far reaches of a hospital...

Yes I can here that too, a constant distant raw that is nothing to do with the gusts. Sound reminded me of something else.

definitely going to be the strongest ive experienced in a very long time i think, getting quite loud at times now and occasionally a bin falls over, had a few gusts i could certainly feel.

 

now to decide what time i should try to sleep to maximise the experience lol, im hoping for a good squall line tomorrow or today rather.
