Models are struggling to get a handle on things, but wednesday looks at the very least wet and blowy and potentially rather more than that, especially in the NW.

A deep low looks set to skirt us to the west and some models have been developing a tight little secondary low over us as it passes by. No met office warnings out yet, but one to watch.

River levels are increasing in some areas. Looking at the Ballater camera and chart it is very noticeable how much the river level has gone up in the past 5 hours.

A useful site for seeing river level data across the UK is GaugeMap:

Tomorrow looks potentially rather disruptive even out of the met office warning areas - the conditions look like they may be conducive to producing a squall line with damaging gusts and potential hail and lightning as it passes through. Be prepared for travel issues.

Updated warnings with an extended area over the south.

Win has really got up here on the outskirts of Plymouth in the last hour. think Its going to be an interesting walk to school.

Very very windy here. All I can hear is wind and stuff crashing about.

Recycling day, so might need to go and find the boxes in a minute.

That Will be down to the squall line developing. Watch it as it comes through people.

My new winter wellies arrived yesterday grin, perfect for today.

Wet and windy down here, quite gusty.

RafaIsTheKingOfClay Thu 29-Nov-18 09:44:56

I think the new Met Office site might be missing a warning about wheely bins barrelling down the pavement at you.

They also need a warning about garden chairs going for a dip in ponds.

Main lot of rain cleared quite quickly here and it's brightened up nicely but it's very windy.
Squall line showing up well here on netweather's radar.

It's looking rather stormy on the Dawlish webcam.

It's gone quite dark here (Leicester) ~ squall line approaching.

OhYouBadBadKitten Thu 29-Nov-18 11:14:05

Squall line broke up in the south sad that's sad for me, I was looking forward to it.

Meet0nTheIedge Thu 29-Nov-18 11:15:11

It's extremely windy here, seemed to pick up strength between 9 and 10am (Surrey/Hants border). Not much rain though.

GloriaSmud Thu 29-Nov-18 11:19:25

I don't think Leicester's going to get the full-on version ~ it looks like a bit of a 'splodge' in the middle of the line, moving towards us at the moment!

OhYouBadBadKitten Thu 29-Nov-18 11:49:29

Often the most interesting weather occurs where a squall line breaks a little and one part moves just slightly ahead of another iyswim. I'll see if I can get back on the radar.

OhYouBadBadKitten Thu 29-Nov-18 11:51:35

You can see breaks quite nicely in the line...

Have I just slept through it? Yes I was asleep this morning. Is it with you Gloria? I can work it out from there.

GloriaSmud Thu 29-Nov-18 12:53:21

Blackeyed ~ It was all a bit of a very 'damp squib' in the end. A bit blustery, quick burst of rain and that was it! I think we ended up being at the top of the squall line, where it had disintegrated into a 'splodge.'
Not very exciting at all sad

Meet0nTheIedge Thu 29-Nov-18 14:10:23

Sun's out now smile

Thanks. Twas a bit windy on the way back from shopping but nothing like some of the other squall lines that have gone through here.
