Last night was awful. North Hampshire.
The wind kept us awake.
Fence panels seem to have had a miraculous escape confused.

Netweather have a bit about tonight's weather here ~ looks like the metoffice could see the way things were going this morning and that it needed a warning.

Actually, tonight could be surprisingly nasty in the south according to some forecasters.

weather forcast said it was getting windy in the south... may that is why? (presumably people in the north walk round with lead in the bottom their boots)

No ~ am confused too!
Might be 'a bit blowy' but nothing too dramatic!

I didn't think tonight's warranted warning about confused

Weather warnings from today until Saturday.
(Was there anything in the way of strong winds due today?)

Wind gusts for 3pm Friday.

Just one to watch. I think warnings will be going out later today. Nothing too extreme, but it's not been properly windy for ages and with damaged trees from the snow and lots of rain in the same system, there could be some low level disruption.
High Wind right across the uk but southern coasts (gusts to 70?) and northern England and Wales (gusts to 80?) could take the brunt of this one.

Then Saturday/Sunday there is the potential for a different system bringing high winds across central and southern areas into East Anglia (with maybe a little snow embedded?)
