- Anyone else watching tomorrow's forecasts
A mate has just landed at Manchester Airport and said it was absolutely terrifying? The pilot aborted the landing as they were nearly on the ground, took it round again and put it down to a round of applause from all aboard

I would say its pretty bloody windy here in Liverpool, quite a bit of our office roof is now on top of 2 of our flour tankers, our scaffold tower has blown into the sprinkler reservoir and there are several sections of cladding peeling away from to warehouse canopy.Posted 2 years ago
We have also closed our side wheat intake as the tippers were swaying badly when only 1/4 way up.binnersSubscriber
Big tree down up our road, so the roads closed.
Just thought I’d post this up, as it made me laugh, and it was filmed up Latrigg in the Lakes, and we were up on the top of there on the same day, clinging on. It was a bit blustery..

Well I’m now stuck overnight in London.
Took an extra 2 hrs to get down this morning from Sheffield, via Cambridge. I could have turned back at Leics, but decided to be good and fight my way in to the office.
No East Mids trains back (cables down), no East Coast Trains (at least they’re not taking EMT tickets as they’ve got enough of their own problems) and there’s one chance of me getting home via Birmingham, which only has a tiny margin for error and leaves me stuck in Brum if it goes even vaguely wrong.

No. long term weather nerd.
Impressive knowledge – the guy made a good explanation at the end of the news last night, new terminology for me!
Quite a lot of road debris but wonderful post lunch walk in bracing winds and sun this afternoon. Not much Doris to be seen.Posted 2 years ago
Yeah, took me a while to get out on my ride, and I was too late (that and my fitness isn’t up to chasing Strava KOMs without a huge tailwind). Not even as much tailwind as when I first took the KOM I was chasing. Though the upwind bits were probably more pleasant than they might have been an hour or so earlier and it got me out on my bike, so can’t all be bad.Posted 2 years agoCountZeroMember
One lucky driving instructor who spotted a tree coming down with just enough time to stop, and one unhappy VW Golf owner whose pride and joy was practically cut in two by a large tree blowing over, fortunately parked and empty.Posted 2 years ago
Driving along the M4 between 6 and 7am this morning was a bit exciting at times, passing the big trucks it was like having a fire hose pointed at the screen, could barely see anything at all with the amount of spray and crosswind.
