All the very best to you, too,  Mull. Looks like you'll be getting both the warmest and coldest Xmas on the big day itself.

Happy Christmas Mull.

 I always follow your posts as one of my oldest friends is building on Mull to live near her son who has lived there for a number of years. She had somewhat of an episode last year around Christmas when he was taken ill and had to be transferred to hospital on the mainland. She had to get to him, complete with her dog and travel backwards and forwards. Life was very difficult for her at the time.

Glad Mrs Mull got her shopping done !

Gusts of up to 80mph and torrential rain are set to batter North Wales this week.
The Met Office has issued a yellow “be aware” weather warning for wind across the region on Friday.
The alert comes into force at 6am that morning and remains in place until 11.55pm – with forecasters warning the hurricane-force winds could damage buildings and power lines.
Wind speeds are expected to hit between 60-70mph in most parts, but forecasters say gusts could exceed 80mph in exposed coastal areas.

It could be bad - or it could be almost nothing.   Low pressure systems that are as deep as that one have comparatively small areas of very high wind speeds. The worst gusts are always on the trailing edge, so it won't be as bad when it comes in. It only takes a slight nudge for it to miss us - or clobber us.

Had to laugh at the Express Headline this morning - Arctic Blasts for a month forecast. They can't even be sure five days ahead , so I doubt a month's very realistic. According to the Atlantic pressure charts the deep front (959) is most likely to swing North before it hits us, so we could miss in entirely. All in the lap of the gods.

Seems as though the really nasty weather system is indeed going to track further South than they thought.

Seems the gods were happy. Really nasty weather missed us.

Each time in the past six months the met office has issued dire warnings, they've failed to materialise to the level we were led to believe.  I think it's the Fish effect...

We could have a forum competition nearest to the correct speed wins.......

Weather warning as 80mph winds to batter North Wales causing disruption and damage
The Met Office has issued an amber alert for strong gales on Thursday

I say, 46mph,  because it usually fizzles out.

I will try 42 mph, due to the fizzle factor.

A tad worried over this one, as the epicentre of the storm system has been progressively moving over us as the probability increases. I think the fact that they've issued an Amber alert also suggests they're a little more confident than usual. All we can do is hope there's a lot of rain with it.

It's seems like its those wind speeds up here normally so I's say a tad higher at 55mph although I hope it isn't.

What is the prize for this incredibly exciting competition Ian?
