5am we had a pathetic attempt at a thunderstorm, it's been a gorgeous day today only just started raining. I have torches, curtains and windows open ready to enjoy 'St Jude's' but nothing...why do we bother having a weather forecast!

Disclaimer: While I enjoy a few gusts and thunder and lightening I in no way want a huge storm that will affect others in any negative way*

It's here in Brighton!

cantspel Sun 27-Oct-13 22:28:35

It has started here on the south coast so it is on its way to the rest of you

Boggler Sun 27-Oct-13 22:28:55

Yanbu there's not so much as a slight breeze around here!

My dp's boss has emailed all the drivers to say stay at home until 6am as its due to hit midlands about 3-4am..... I expect it to be bad if he is willing to lose money grin

Well if you'd watched the weather forecast you'd know when it's forecast in your area!

I'm in Scotland and we have really heavy rain. Can't sleep because of it so came on here hoping for some storm porn!

LegoCaltrops Sun 27-Oct-13 22:33:49

We're still waiting here too. Have stocked up on food that can be cooked on the gas hob, located candles etc.

OverMyDeadQODdy Sun 27-Oct-13 22:33:51

It's here now, SE Kent coast

I'm in East Anglia. No wind or rain as yet but our train services are all cancelled for tomorrow morning till around 9am. It's not meant to hit is till approximately 8am here

We're in Scotland - rain is heavy but little wind. Even what is forecast is not the worst to hit the uk since 1987 which i read earlier, just the worst to hit the south of england. We'd really bad hurricane force up here last winter and the year before.

bundaberg Sun 27-Oct-13 22:36:01

i'm in w.sussex and we've had a ton of quite heavy rain which has now kind of stopped. nothing else. no wind

FortyDoorsToNowhere Sun 27-Oct-13 22:37:12

it's just normal weather

cantspel Sun 27-Oct-13 22:37:47

I am in west sussex but right on the coast and the winds are starting to blow. nothing bad yet but with the lashing rain it is not a pleasant night for a stroll along the sea front

UnicornsNotRiddenByGrownUps Sun 27-Oct-13 22:39:28

WeegieMum yeh I can't see it being as bad as those winds. With bits flying off buildings. shock Crossing the forth road bridge was terrifying!

Iaintdunnuffink Sun 27-Oct-13 22:39:39

In Berkshire. It was windy today with the odd angry looking sky, then it went very calm with a bit of drizzle. I was thinking that it wouldn't be so bad or was going to mainly miss us. There's still no wind but the rain is building up.

BreconBeBuggered Sun 27-Oct-13 22:43:52

It's not meant to have hit any of us yet. What we've got at the moment is plain October shitty weather.

BreconBeBuggered Sun 27-Oct-13 22:44:59

Oops, forgot to refresh before posting. What lubey said.

Weegiemum Sun 27-Oct-13 22:45:06

yes the hurricane force in dec 2011 was nasty - every single glass recycle bin in our street was blown away, there was glass everywhere. my dh couldnt get home from work for 2 nights, roads were blocked. Tree branches crushed several cars in nour street.

I hope its not that bad for s england tonight. out children were off school for 3 days then as it was too dangerous to let wee ones out of the house!

saintmerryweather Sun 27-Oct-13 22:47:48

im in south east kent and we've got bog standard heavy rain and a few gusts of wind

ConfusedPixie Sun 27-Oct-13 22:50:46

Apparently it's in Brighton, a friend has her power down, I haven't seen or heard much yet though! Though we have got weird weather systems and I am not on the seafront. I've been checking the back periodically to see if I'll see some lightening but nowt sad
