    Do they track the path of the trampoline or the children?

    So how's it looking for our drive from Northants to Porthmadog on Saturday afternoon then? :hmm:

    Wet and windy, though most of the rain will probably be during the night Friday into Saturday. Storm could track a little further to the north of where the Met Office here are plumping for so a chance of wind gusts extending further into central England than shown:

    The crab fishermen in the little harbour I keep an eye on in southern Brittany have decamped. I don't think I checked while Ophelia was blowing so it may not just be Brian they're worried about ... I checked and we're into peak crabbing season.

    ECM and GFS now in good agreement that the windstorm overnight Friday into Saturday morning will tend to mostly batter W/SW/S Ireland and SW Wales/England (from approx. St. Davids south around the coast to the Lizard). Up to 70-75 mph gusts around SW Ireland, 55-65 mph gusts in those other areas. High winds in the Channel associated with that event too.

    Brief minor windstorm in the Channel and off SW Wales running up towards the Irish Sea this evening/overnight as well.

    Last week of October tending to look more settled on the models (at the moment).

    The tide's on its way in and it's getting a bit choppy - winds 40MPH - plus - from the South - with that harbour arm on the right giving protection from WSW.

    Oh yes, I can see why they've moved their boats now ...

    Whatever you do don’t fuck with Asterisk. He’s got incredible strength and a lot of indomitable friends behind him.

    Latest GFS runs downgrading Brian a little though still a fair bit of wind in the Bristol Channel and across adjacent coasts. It has still been powering along out at sea and even developed signs of a sting jet but now looking like it will have peaked before it reaches land.

    we've got spring ( ie : big ) tides tmmrw, 70mph winds, 26ft swell predicted up here ( N Devon ) - not sure I remember swell forecast of that size...7.30am is high tide / peak swell.Sounds sketchy on paper.

    Brian's got the football cancelled here in Penzance today. And he's trying to rip my roof off.

    Brian can fuck off.

    Flooding here this morning... Bright and relatively calm at the moment but expecting strong winds later.
    All my garden pots were disturbed and tossed about...:(

    Someone at school the other day noted that storm Ophelia (run them together) sounded like a morbid obsession with wind.

    Not sure, its not that likely to happen.

    eg last storm season they got as far as E and in 2015/16 got to K.
