Storm Ciara - Atlantic storm 3

Recommended Posts

Very strong wind gusts here. I went to Galley Hill and had coffee in the De La Warr. The wind has only strengthened since then, with some truly wild gusts across Bexhill. My fence is nearly destroyed...

Picture provided barely does the scene justice.

Looks like we can put the ecm model in the bad books by overdoing the wind speeds, the peak of today's winds were in the morning which is odd considering the forecast was for them to increase throughout the day.

You seem determined to find fault with the models even though the worst is yet to come for the south.

So basically between the two squalls, is where the wind is?

The squall just came through here and wow thought it was a hurricane, some of the best/worst weather I've seen probably since the May 2018 thunderstorms.

Damage to sheds and a tree is almost down after the squall, tried to upload pics and vids but it won't let me choose the file type to upload them, any ideas?

I know I could be wrong but the winds dont seem to be increasing if not moderating to me, I guess we will find out .

I agree with your thoughts on the current situation, but we still have the main squall line to our north.

Mine did morate for a while, but seem to be increasing again now.

The winds here on the SE coast have picked up massively now. Some very intense gusts too. Could be interesting when that squall line reaches us. It’s extremely rough now

Suns out, blue skies overhead with the clouds clearing out and down to just a bit of a breeze, amazing contrast to just 30 mins ago o_O

First squall going through Worthing now. 

Is it now, between the two squall lines, that the winds are meant to peak?

Nothing particularly bad in Portsmouth so far, must be in the perfect spot behind the Isle of Wight protecting us.

A tree looks like it's about to snap on someone's house. Not good.

I'm currently pricing up gravel boards, concrete posts and close board panels, so you can guess what's happened here..

It seems to be, we are in Northants, where the jumbled showers in front of the main squall line are, and its getting ferocious now.

Was waiting for that cold front to move through in Hereford before drawing conclusion, but certainly here in Hereford for some reason it wasnt bad at all, wouldnt even give it a yellow warning here.
