As forecast, yesterday was a very windy day with gusts of over 100mph being recorded in some areas of the UK. Fortunately, though very squally, we didn't suffer anything like that. These are snapshots taken at one minute intervals so some stronger gusts could have been missed:

The highest gusts my weather station recorded were around 43mph which was quite enough for me. At one stage I was looking out of the kitchen window when one particularly strong gust actually lifted the back of my summerhouse off the ground. For one heart stopping moment I thought it was going to end up falling on its front but fortunately it settled down again.


  1. Good to hear that you and the summer house survived. Max wind here was 46mph. I am sheltered down here in the trees. I dread to think what it was like higher up.

    1. Adrian. 20hrs of gusty winds yesterday didn't do my anemometer any good. It's now sulking and refuses to move!

    1. All's well that ends well TWG. Just one fence panel needed repairing.
