Wind warnings already issued by the metoffice for Tuesday and Wednesday.

(Storm hasn't been named yet but I think looking at the wind charts, it will become 'Storm Gareth' in the next few days.)

ps the oh fuck was to the squall line going through at school run timeish but equally applies to the risk of tornadoes, speaking as someone whose garage roof was moved 8 inches upward by doris.

thanks to oybbk I am now safely back home and about toi tuck up into bed again before doing the dreaded housework and admin.

This mornings school run was not fun. The was blowing in my face there & back, pushing the double buggy was a right workout!

Blackeyed ~ I didn't know whether you were applying that just to the weather or the country generally!

I think the squall line has just gone through here (Leicester) ~ it's chucked it down and the temperature's dropped from nearly 9C, 30 minutes or so ago to 6.7C now.

Squall line showing up well here.

Just got very dark, windy and rainy here on the Fife coast.

The temperature here has dropped like a stone ~ 'tis now 4.3C and there's a hint of wintriness to what's falling from the sky.

I was on the M20 - Dover to Ashford this afternoon & I don't ever remember driving through such heavy rain in this country. Stayed in the inside lane & slowed to about 35/40mph. Very scary but am home saf enow.

That must have been scary Magi, it was a potent front.

Of course Gareth isn't actually over, that was just a forerunner of the main event.

the wind map is showing what we've got now and what's to come.

I have never seen so much water coming down as yesterday evening on my way home. There was rain, sleet and hail all at the same time.
Has calmed down now.

Don't like it. Wind makes me anxious. Thought it was bad last night - luckily only lost my plastic greenhouse cover and a neighbour has lost most of the rendering of the chimney stack. Seems worse tonight.

Stay safe.
