Certainly is beginning to look like we are in for an unsettled spell, with strong winds for some. WXsim/gfs suggesting gusts of around 50mph for the Fort.

My WXsim is the same until Monday then a chance of thunder, although my forecasts will tend to ditch the thunder 3 days out.  Wink

WXSim has begun to wimp out, and now predicting 40mph for the Fort - still a bit blowy, though!

Still SSW 44-56→41-56mph Storm in WxSim here for Saturday, but Gale after that through to Monday rather than the earlier Strong Gale.

NMM suggesting the strongest winds will affect mainly the north, Lewis and Orkney. For some reason, the UK map on Netweather does not go as far north as Shetland, but I suspect you guys up there will also be in for a battering this weekend.

81mph gust at 0510 this morning here with highest average of 65mph at 0503.
Large thunder storm approaching the west side of the island and my Boltek is going nuts with alarms at the moment.
I should be at work by the Braigh (road between here & Stornoway) is close because the high tide is currently throwing rocks on to it!!  Roll Eyes

This weekend again looks even more stormy!
Last Sunday (11th) we broke our daily wind run record again (but only just) taking it up to 644 miles. Biggest recorded gust was 59mph at 19:58.

What sort of wind run figures do others see?

Wind run for Saturday 10th was 852.6
Wind run for Sunday 11th was 842.7

We had several gusts of around 81 mph on Saturday and upto 65MPH on Sunday.

As You say Sean, this coming Saturday evening into Sunday looks a wee bit windy as well, but not as bad as last weekend.

I expected that your figures would blow mine away.  Grin

We had several gusts of around 81 mph on Saturday and upto 65MPH on Sunday.
I recorded slightly higher on Sunday that Saturday, and it was the (lower mounted) WMR200 anemometer that caught the maximum gust for the weekend (59 mph, cf. 55 mph for the WMR928).  It will be interesting to see what figures the Vortex produces when it eventually gets to the top of the pole!

I think it will be worse than last weekend charts show a low of 936mb!

That maybe at the centre of the Low but it's not going to get that low where we are as the centre is forecast to pass between us & the Faeroes and then towards Iceland.
The UKMO are forecasting 956mb for it, Net Weather's GFS has it at 938mb, Weather Online have 945mb so we'll have to wait & see.  Grin
