Champion! But nobody seems to be posting in it! It's windy here (in Skipton) and very wet. But nothing out of the ordinary really... Is it going to get worse? The BBC and met office forecasts seem to suggest it's going to dry up this afternoon, and they're not forecasting us much in the way of showers, etc. from then on? I wondered whether we might be West enough to catch some snow?

It isn't rain that's the concern, it's the wind. Gusts over the Dales could be in excess of 80 miles per hour

Highest gusts here (so far) were actually earlier this morning, but looking closely at the charts that would be expected, since a slight widening of the isobars over Yorkshire was shown on the 6z for this period. It's only a lull though, the worst of the winds will be later this afternoon and into early evening, (coinciding nicely with rush hour of course). I'm still expecting max gusts up here of between 70 and 80 mph. But we'll see.

You can bet Leeds Bradford Airport will be diverting most of its flights to Manchester.

Although I live in South Yorks I work in Leeds and it looks fairly calm at the moment. However the cold front is yet to move through and once it does the winds are likely to pick up quite dramatically this afternoon....stay safe everyone!

Intense rainfall accompanied by some pretty violent gusts just passed over, quite dramatic.

That was pretty crazy.. the rain itself wasn't the heaviest I have seen but the wind really drove it along.. felt sorry for the poor binmen who chose to come at the wrong time

I am in Dronfield 6 miles south of the city centre and i was just about to go out the door i opened it to what can only be described as looking like something you would see on a raging planet program! the rain was really intense and even turned to sleet at one point with snow flakes mixed in the air has now turned alot colder.

Strangely calm here for the last 30 mins, no more than 25 mph gusts. Calm before the storm ? Or has it peaked earlier than forecast ?

Might have a drive upto Fox House and stand at the top of the Hill and let the full force of the wind hold me up :rofl: you most probably think i am bonkers the wind last time must have been upwards of 60mph! easily.

There is a short video of the back end of the Squall here that my girlfriend managed to catch on her phone, also on my flickr pictures are a selection of photos from the incredible snowfalls that we saw in November 2010 for those that are interested.
