    Good luck with your test bimble. Hopefully it’s less breezy than it was last night. Eleanor kept me up...

    Me too, Windows rattling and all the wheeley bins dancing in the street. Sun coming out now though. Trying to breathe and stay calm but it’s hard!

    It's actually really refreshing to be outside! Not cold, nice and cool.

    Although I am bunged up with flu so probably getting a different reaction to most, but it's the freshest I've felt for days for just standing outside for a bit.

    Good luck :) Not too windy here now so hope it's calmed down where you are.

    Thunder and lightning, heavy rain and extreme gusts all night.
    Was not prepared for this one at all...full recycling bin upended and I can't find most of the contents :facepalm:
    Flooding in a few places locally...along by the river and the docks.
    Thankfully it has calmed down now.

    Thank you everyone for your kind messages. Didn’t mean to turn this into another learning to drive thread. It’s really frustrating but yeah, maybe it’ll be third time lucky.

    A small bonus streak of lightning strikes across the midlands provided me a nice but very brief and unexpected show at about 1.30am.

    Oh yeah, you're allowed a bit of rage for today.

    You were closer today than you were last time. That's good, it shows your direction of travel. Anyway, it's far too cold in North Wales at the moment for a soft Lundun thing like yourself to move there, so take the opportunity to build up your reserves with some pies...

    StoneRoad heckling from the back!

    Last night.
    t'was a dark and stormy night in Whitehaven ...
    local headland max gust was 66 mph overnight, and almost a metre extra onto the midnight high tide gave 9.2m ...
    the boat is very well moored to her pontoon but it was still moving about.
    When I went out to take some photos at lunchtime it was "interesting"

    Looks like the switch has finally happened. I've not checked whether it changed on the telly yet but the bbc weather website is certainly powered by meteogroup now and is quite different.

    A little too early for me to form a proper impression, but I like the percentage rain chances.

    Seems to be only for some (limited) views of the website.

    Within the last hour the TV forecasts were still being produced using Met Office data and the Weatherscape XT graphics (introduced in 2004). Likewise the BBC Weather twitter feed.

    GFS tends to agree but only a sprinkle late in the day (much more snow in the offing to the west and north of London). More snow possible on Friday (9th).
