Colder days on the way

The overnight gales died down quickly through Thursday morning to give us another mild day with some sunny spells. Once again we survived the gales without any damage. The wind did manage to overturn our old garden seat which I found rather amazing as it’s pretty sturdy.

Since December we’ve had an amazing spell of windy weather. My weather Station has been operating since October 2009. Up to the beginning of last December I’d recorded just one gale force wind gust above 30mph although at 36mph it remains our strongest gust.

However December and January to date have produced 6 days with wind gust speeds above 30mph. January alone has already provided 4 such days.

The forecast is for some much calmer weather stretching into next week with colder daytime temperatures and overnight frosts. A few days without gale force winds will be a pleasant change.
