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

You are very lucky, here we have only had a few sticks come down.

Squall line just passing.  The wind is roaring ??

Out of interest does this squall have the worst winds you have seen all day?

I was really looking forward to some proper winds and damage but have ben left rather disappointed with a few broken branches about 2 cm thick. Hopefully the wind will increase drastically ahead of and along the squall line.

Found a nice frame from when I filmed the squall line coming over at 14:30, as I noticed a cell/white blob on the Rain Radar. Must say, I really enjoyed that line. Now the blue skies are showing.

The attention will soon turn to the south east corner. Some models ramp up the winds between now and 6pm for the counties south of London, with a few models closer to 90mph in places - though this does include the ECM which has been slightly too high further north.

Best verifying model so far imo is the GFS! It's always been pretty good for winds speeds within 72 hours (a bit mad beyond 72), it nailed the Feb 2014 storm, and I think it's been pretty close to the mark today - generally 60-69mph with a few spots over 70mph. If the GFS continues to be right today, we will probably only see an 80mph plus (at a sea level reporting station) in Kent.

Just wondering if based on this Ciara still has one more trick up her sleeve, and I will get some good winds in North London?

Holbeach (near The Wash) official weather station reporting 78mph gust just now - that's lively.

@MetWeather based on this the worst still has not got to you.

Looking at the radar, the squall seems to have developed some bulges and tentative signs of developing LEWP segments. Just west of Reading looks interesting.

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

 

I was on Hastings beach just by the lifeboat station as it went out. It's hard to comprehend anyone going near that sea today.

Sorry for all this negativity, I have just never really been in proper winds before, as the last big storm in London was the St. Judes storm, when I was only 6. This has given me hope, and the squall line has intensified as it is moving towards me!

There have been widespread 70mph gusts, Kent, Lincolnshire, Cambridgshire, Notts, Derbys, etc

Fair enough, but looking back over the predictions (which is all they were), 'we' were potentially in for hours of it, not sporadic gusts associated with frontal activity. (I feel very sorry for the poor people who have suffered as a result.)

The MO were getting quite a lot of stick about their forecasts and warnings but I don't think they were that far off in the end, even when it comes to the earlier amber warning in the south east which is now starting to look at the very least prescient.

Some very big gusts in the east 78mph.

The squall that came through was about a powerful as earlier well the wind just picked up for a half an hour anyway.

Biggest most damaging storm of the year by far.

Went to Folkstone to see how rough the sea was and I'm pretty glad I went, the wind was amazing as I had trouble moving around whilst trying to get a grip ?
