Getting wet and windy in the Irish sea area. Not unusual weather for autumn, but it's the first proper rain we have had in nearly a month!

There's a lovely breeze in N Manchester but no rain yet.

raining and getting windy here in Central Scotland. We've had a great run of weather so it had to break sometime

Drizzling here on the east coast of Scotland. Was a bit breezy earlier but dead calm now. The air has that weird, earthy smell you get when you get rain after a dry spell.

Smurry rain in N scotland tonight. 50mph wind forecast tomorrow though.
Still, its warm rain.
This means summer

Nearly blown off my feet walking the dog.

Wind should begin to ease this afternoon. Latest travel disruption for Scotland ~ lots of bridges closed/not allowing high sided vehicles.
