Gale warnings for Scotland and NE England

(32 Posts)

From the met office for sunday afternoon into Monday as a deep area of low pressure develops to the north of the UK. Potential for gusts of up to 70mph in parts of Scotland.

Autumn seems to be arriving early.

little bump as its the first potential proper blow of the season!

I heard about this on the forecast after the lunchtime news and thought 'that sounds like the first Autumn storm of the year!'
'Tis going to be a bit of a shock after the nice summer.

Oh joy.

Bye bye electricity, yet again, no doubt.

Oh FGS!

The two days of the week that I'm not working, and the weather is going to be shite? Just typical.

I give it 6 weeks before it's snowed.

It does look pretty grim in the 3 main models. They vary in position and depth of the low, but not hugely I'm afraid. There's weather coming!

O dear, DP is off to the Great North Run and driving back to the far north after... Do you think I'll get him back in one piece OYBBK?

Will it affect the east or west coast worst?

Grrr, hate it when it loses my post when I'm checking up different aspects.

Sunday the wind field seems quite evenly distributed to me east west wise. It's not a very bad storm by any means. Just gales really, but there's a fair bit of rain expected down the north west. Pretty blowy even towards the south. Could be some thunderstorms in northern England too. Monday evening, perhaps a squeeze in the isobars in the west?

It seems so hard to believe because its warm and sunny in Glasgow today - a beautiful late summer day.

How funny, dull and cold here!

NW borders here - still very calm... but snow showers predicted over the highest tops tonight! <excited face>

All quiet here atm (Leicester) We've woken up to a sunny but breezy morning ~ the washing's out but not sure how long for as cloud's beginning to move in. Been a cold night though ~ down to 4.3C at 4.13am.

Heavy rain and wind already here in central Scotland. Wish I'd remembered to bring the washing in last night!

We are.on holiday in West scotland (Argyll) today and driving home tomorrow..everywhere around us has landslide warning signs.
Awesome timing.

Weathers minging in Hamilton! Yesterday was lovely, glad I got my washing done.

Quiet down in the south too. Going to do my outdoor stuff this morning as its going to be a wet old afternoon.
Some sharpest gusts in western Scotland first thing this am. I think these will calm down somewhat through today before picking up again tomorrow afternoon/evening. Generally pretty windy across Britain though.

Oops demented! Still, at least it will be well rinsed (as long as your pegs are strong)

Fanjo - have a safe journey.

Yesterday was lovely - right into the evening. Heavy rain this morning. We are on the West Coast of Scotland.

Lifeofpo, is it feeling like an early start to autumn up there, or is it about right?

It's not as bad as hurricane bawbag so we'll be fine.

Tis true binger, you've had much worse!
I guess it's getting the coverage because its the first storm of the season.

In the Isle of Wight here. So far just a bit windy and rainy but the foghorn is going and the guys at the Needles were talking about shutting early for the storm.

How did it pan out cru? Generally a windy day today with perhaps gales along the western coasts.

CruCru Mon 16-Sep-13 10:49:05

Bit of a damp squib really. We're in a spot that gets quite a lot of wind but this didn't seem exceptional.

I didn't think it would be. I've no idea why it was talked up so much.

Yama Mon 16-Sep-13 22:04:54

Well, ds and I got totally drenched today. At one point he had to walk behind me as we walked into the wind. Good fun though. grin
