The one boat left in Pors Poulhan harbour came through unscathed.
What's going on in the bottom right, looks like someone dropped £50.
Just been for a walk on the beach at Sennen. Atlantic's still fairly wild. The red flags were only up for a bit of the beach though. A few surfers in nonetheless.
My favourite Express weather lunacy of very recent times, and there are plenty to choose from, is this from October 23rd where they up the ante with one of the silliest seasonal predictions I've seen.
We had hailstones here today....very suddenly too.....skidded on them.
I have to say the "RADIATION (!!!!!!) fog" was pretty lack-lustre.
I didn't need to break out my bike's fog light.
Guardian article appears to confirm this.
Don't know where to start with today's Express hyperbole ...
The Express is a minor wonder. Who knew that a publication can be kept going merely by stoking up the fears of right-wing pensioners?
Storm Numa/Eurydice looking like (according to models) it will strengthen into a rare ‘Medicane’ as the weekend approaches, battering southern Italy and then Macedonia/Greece and Turkey. The core is currently projected to warm and the classic eye will probably develop (though it won’t technically be a tropical cyclone - sub-tropical instead). Unlike Atlantic windstorms/extra-tropical hurricanes this one is dawdling, taking its time, which is resulting in a lot of localised flooding as well as very high winds. It’s already caused quite a bit of havoc in Italy, Malta, Greece and adjacent areas.
Slightly overdramatic Italian forecast graphic:
Big storms and false widow spiders in one story, that's double points in daily express bingo. All we need now is Diana, some faceless Brussels bureaucrats and a horde or three of Romanian welfare mothers come to wage WAR ON CHRISTMAS.
someone on there is having a laff ..

2hats - any news on the development of storm Dylan that the gutter press are banging on about?
The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind......
I'll get me coat......
Sorry, am a long way off from there right now.
Looking at the models, bit windy along the south coast and in the North Sea late xmas day into boxing day. Generally unsettled between xmas and NY. Not much else jumps out at me but I haven't studied the charts extensively.
My house is rattling tonight...keeping me awake
Same, which is annoying as I only got 3 hours sleep last night...
My windows are rattling
Eleanor isn't being a lady tonight
Just drove from Bristol to London. Just before I left Bristol at 10 it power showered and there were waterfalls coming down the hill at the back of the BRI and the bear pit was flooded. The motorway had loads of spray and lakes but fortunately not much traffic ... And then suddenly it was clear and the moon was amazing, everything looked so beautiful (and by chance there was a programme on the radio about the moon which was interesting)... Coming across past Swindon the wind was blowing the van quite dramatically
This is apparently Eleanor.
This is really loud! Glad I got the remainder of trees fell that went in Doris because I think they’d be down by now!
Another 16 hours of this!!
May as well give up on sleep now.
It was getting windy yesterday afternoon along with heavier rain but it seems quiet now.
eta - looked out of the window and although I can't see any wind going on the flag on a building site opposite is a bit flappy.
Lovely morning for a driving test.
Good luck bimble
I wonder if it's maybe going to be cancelled ? probably not but just read in guardian..:
“Torrential rain and gale-force winds are a recipe for driving disaster,” he said.
Good luck bimble
Good luck bimble!
As odd as it sounds it’s probably a good thing. Other drivers ‘should’ be more cautious for a change and slow moving traffic on a test actually goes to your advantage. The more time stuck in traffic the less chance of building up minors. Rush hour is an excellent time to take a driving test!!
Thank you folks.
