Storm Ciara - Atlantic storm 3

Must be a sheltered station. That's at odds with the general picture around our region which has widespread gusts over 50mph. A look out of the window here at 100m ASL and not particularly sheltered or exposed confirms gusts exceeding 50mph purely by observation.

The rain has been quite showery in nature so far with no sustained heaviness like those areas further north. I suspect our position in relation to the Peak District and the SW/SSW winds have sheltered us a little from the heaviest rain. Still wet of course.

More to come though - we'll see what the squalls bring later ?

Against that hardly any damage to the trees wheelie bins not launched. Okay my wheel Barrow has fallen over. The sound though doesn't really match anything much larger. I'm waiting for the swing to more SW direction.

My joke of a weather station, which updates approx every 50 seconds, has recorded a gale......10.3mph!

Would need to increaes alot to be anything really noteworthy, its actually dropped off since I walked the dog at 7am this morning. See what happens even the rain that met office forecast is not here. Personally I dont think it's going to be all the note worthy now. 

The south coast won't be affected until the afternoon. Give it a chance before moaning about a let down! ?

Agree. At the moment its building and you can see that compared to a couple of hours ago. It's looking at a tree on a roundabout and it's getting the battering of it's long life at the moment!

That's later today isn't it?

My road is almost dead on S-N so perhaps increasing the speeds up the road. Either way it is a stormy day and I'm intrigued to see what the squalls can do.

To be fair to Rapodo, the BBC forecasts are poor. They show 80mph gusts for here right now. It's just over half of that. The Met Office show 50mph.

That's the fella that'll bring the worst gusts as it moves southeast. Needs to be watched.

BBC forecasts are bought from the lowest bidders now.
