Unusual to see such a widespread gale warning in June. Gusts to 70mph along parts of the south coast and parts of the Irish and Welsh coast. 50-60mph inland. I would expect to see trees down given they are in full leaf now.
our warning appeared at about 8.30 I was relieved to read the time when it appeared as I thought I was having a mad moment when I had not seen it earlier this morning. (first day back at school and all that)
I'm in the southern section of NW England.Rural. Looks like we're in for it. We're bound to get some trees down here, and they'll take some of the electricity cables with them, so I've got my power cut kit ready. It gets a lot of use where I live but I don't think I've needed it in bloody June before!
<struggles to shut door and smoothes down unruly mop of hair with masses of hair gel> Yes fine
It's really blowy still ~ can hear the top part of a fence panel knocking against a fence post in the garden. Unfortunately it's right behind a rapidly growing buddleia bush so think that's a job for the autumn when the buddleia gets cut back a bit. Let's hope we don't get too many of these blustery days before then!
