Now that is some gust....was it real I ask?
If you look again you'll find no trace of that...

Something very odd seems to have been going on with the Inspeed/Hobby Boards anemometer ("wind8") between 0320 and 0610.

I stripped all the "wind8" data out of the meteohub database between 0315 and 0615, restored the 0048 backup of WD, then reran this morning from the (edited) logged data, with wind data from the 'old' WMR200 filling the gap. All that was still going on when you grabbed your screen shot.

I now need to do some data analysis to see if I can find a way to "logically" spot and exclude such a thing. Sad

I have 1 second resolution "debug" data from the  Inspeed/Hobby Boards. It doesn't appear to be quite what I had before installing the 'low pass' filter as there isn't a single "off the scale" reading, just a lot of "unreasonably high" ones. There was no rain at the time. My HB lightning detector didn't spot anything (but it's still in the house). There aren't dramatic fluctuations in the 'click' count from second to second. If it was electrical is was low frequency (or intermittent) enough to only add 20-30 'clicks' a second to the count and that would be very hard to filter out without loosing real data. And of course it all happened while no one was watching!

It's a case of being "obviously wrong" to the human eye, but it may be very awkward to define logically (but I'll try).

All very strange.  Sad

I would question that one, unless you're in a glen where the wind funnels past or you're on top of Munro.  Wink

I lived in Southampton in 1987 and knew anything about the storm until I was driving to work the following morning. I looked around at the fallen trees and wondered what caused it? Must have slept right through and not heard a thing!!  Cheesy
I did spend that evening helping out at the Lifeboat station with sunken fishing boats etc in the Hamble River.

Poor old Michael Fish, they keep on about what he said but he wasn't talking about the Low, he was referring to the remains of a hurricane that was active on the Eastern Seaboard of the U.S during the same week. It's only the media that keep dragging it up as a 'gaff'.  Roll Eyes
Bill Giles was actually the duty forecaster that night.

See if you can spot the anemonmeters...one on the chimney and one on the topped leylandi tree next to the road...and as for M Fish..No wonder folk were thinking you were taking the mickey...what a thing he'll always be remembered for...I was passing thru' Heathrow (and then Cheltenham bound) the day after the "Storm"...what a mess there was down there..

Orkney & Shetland still have a bit to go I think, but for the rest of us the Low is well to the north now and the pressure here is rising nicely.

Not bad work on the map there Sean, got it about right I think.  Grin

highest gust up here so far (if it's not already gone past the worst) was 54.1mph at 5.29pm
baro been rising for a few hours too now.
OH has just driven through elgin and said it was very windy, he's hoping kessock bridge is open again (to high sided) when he leaves inverness to come up here tonight with the lorry, and i'm hoping by the time he gets here the worst is over as i don't fancy unloading a curtain sider in this!
