Well, most of the storm has now passed through with winds in Scotland having reached an unconfirmed 79mph.

Ju has been on a chase to Lyme Regis catching some wild weather, so I dare say we will hear from him later on.

In the Midlands here, it is currently wet and breezy, but no significant gusts yet.

Hopefully we can get some pics and detail here! Surprised

Well I'll start the ball rolling with a windspeed graph from my webcast yesterday. This graph incorporates the most intense spell of wind during my morning on the coast of the Firth of Forth:



And a weathercam pic to match:

Just Hi-Fived you for that graph mate, brilliant! Love how easy it is to read there.

Looks like a breezy one, I saw the camera wobble on the video, and lowering the mast a bit may save her bending as you say.

Still need to see your lab! May have to organise a road trip sometime. Maybe the MetW UK meet needs to get off the ground?...

Thanks Wazza, appreciate the kind comments (and the high-5 even more, LOL)! Very Happy

The mast height is always a trade-off between getting as close as possible to the 10m regulation height for measuring windspeed, and the stability of the weathercam/safety of the mast.

I do have a guying kit for the mast, but I don't like using it due to the public trip hazard (which, apart from the injury risk, could do more damage to the mast than the wind, especially if some 300 pound couch potato decides to practise his tight-rope walking using one of the guys) Very Happy They also do little for the stability of the camera which surprised me the first time I tried it, although I suspect it would have helped a little yesterday.

Defo need to get a meet organised!! Would love to show you guys the lab setup, etc!
