There is a strong Harmattan this year which makes the Sun look more Orange than Yellow. European news was saying this morning it would effect up to mid Germany and central France. Check your cars over the next couple of days to see if the forecast winds will carry the Sand particles this far North.   $sunny$

The storm proper started around 1200. Sustained wind speeds are roughly 30mph at the moment. Met office has updated the Amber alert to include most of North Wales.

I've just telephoned a firm in Belfast. Their answerphone said 'Sure, it's gonna to be a bit windy here, so just in case, we've all gone home. Or down the pub. Please phone back tomorrow. '........

Capel has had a 90mph gust. I suspect it's peaking here about now.

The Sun has been changing colour during the morning and I was only able to take this photo when it was past its best.   It was odd though being able to look direct at the Sun while taking the photo.

At the moment the wind is gusting quite strongly and when I took my dog for a walk earlier I kept away from the tall trees just in case.

At this moment I can see a small boat about a mile out in the bay and it seems to be riding out the storm but the sea looks very angry indeed.  Please excuse the quality of the photo as I took it from inside my house as there was no way I was going out in this weather

I imagine the boat is sheltering there.

Large tree is down, and blocking the road at the triangle, on the Gt Orme, just above Mike’s golf course.

Tellytubby sent me these photos that someone took today in Aberdaron.  The gusts there reached over 90 mph

Apart from F's downed tree, any other damage around?

It was pretty rough last night, especially around 1am, but no damage spotted apart from a few garden pots blown over.

We've lost half a dozen trees including this big beech but glad to survive a very rough night.

Arvon Avenue this morning. The poor driver had a dreadful hole punched in his windscreen by the falling tree.

Is there such a thing as a 'nice hole through the windscreen'?

It looks like Storm Brian is coming northwards.   I can't see Rhos on Sea from my window now because of the rain and the wind has started to pick up.   
I've put all the garden furniture down to save getting it damaged by the gales

I suspect it's going to be far quieter than last week, simply because there's a lot of rain around, and that absorbs the wind energy rather well.
