After an October that was more like September, November is behaving more like an early October. Having said that there have been some severe and fatal blips. One yesterday, with 380 mm of rain around Messina. Landslide caused 3 deaths, including a 10 year old child. In Calabria a train derailed due to washed away tracks. Weather came in from North Africa.

cheers,

If Jack published his standing orders at would cover most of the wall space.....

Strange weather, glass still rising, 29.4" this morning but it is raining gently. There were a lot of gulls wheeling about in the sky early yesterday. Never a good sign, usually presages wild weather. We shall see.....

It looks as though we are being very lucky. The Shipping Forecast is full of extreme gale warnigs for the far NW. there is a very intensive Low Pressure system  racing in from the Atlantic heading for the gap between Iceland and Scotland deepening as it goes.  It looks as though the blocking high over Northern Europe has fended off what could have been some very windy wet weather. Jet Stream again governing our weather, and according to current research, in turn due to sunspot activity. This November looks like being the mildest for over 300 years.

Never knew that about the gulls.  Nice day here, clouds in places but bright and still - where are the winds they mentioned?

Brisk breeze from the SW as I walked up to Letcliffe. Much clearer and a bit cooler. Glass fell below 29" last night as the big low raced through, back at 29.2" this morning. We were lucky and only got the taile end of the winds. Reports of mainland winds of over 70mph in NW Scotland and the Isles with snow forecast for high ground today. At the moment it's clear and breezy outside, could be a good day.Gulls could have been moving Eastwards to avoid the gales in the Irish sea and beyond.

Blue sky here in the flatlands; hardly a cloud however it is getting dark now. Another disadvantage to living on a parallel with Birmingham.

The gulls were right. November arrived in Barlick yesterday. Strong cold wind, driving rain and a very gloomy afternoon. Must have been the tail end of the big low that gave winds of over 120mph in NW Scotland yesterday. Glass has gone up to 29.3, broken cloud and a cold breeze that veers north of west occasionally. I think the good weather may be over.

Shipping Forecast this morning gives the picture. Any sea area North of a line Whitby to North Irsh Sea is being battered by winds that are reaching 120mph in the north. Inland wind speed of 96mph recorded in Stirlingshire last night. We had strong gusts in Barlick but nowhere near these speeds. Glass has fallen to 28.8" this morning and its windy and raining outside. However, cloud is broken so we might get some respite from the rain. Definitely November weather!

Six crew mambers still missing from the Russian bulk carrier that broke in two in the Irish Sea. This was only a small one but this type of ship has a very bad record.

See this LINK for the tip of the iceberg. 

Blustery day yesterday but dry on the whole. I recon 40/50mph wind roaring through the trees on Letcliffe yesterday. Glass is steady at 29.3" this morning and we are promised a dry morning but then we can expect a rising wind and heavy rain, perhaps all day tomorrow as well. We are getting the tail end of the big low and as it moves north the wind here swings into the NW and is bitter.

A very wild night up here on Saturday with the wind coming straight up the clough. It roared around the house and kept us awake for most of the night. Our weather station is out of action at the moment, but the neighbours across at Blearaside measured wind speeds in excess of 50mph in a relatively sheltered spot.
