East to West

It was blowing a gale again for most of Wednesday but this time without any hint of sunshine. Although the temperature again remained on the mild side, it didn't feel that mild in the gale force wind. April is turning out to be a month of two halves with the first dominated by bitterly cold easterly winds and the second by gale force westerlies.

The gale force winds persisted Wednesday night into Thursday morning with the highest gust speed of the year so far 32mph being recorded at 07:20. It’s the highest since 04 January 2012 with 33mph. The most severe gust speed I've recorded was 36mph on 04 February 2011.
