Ok well not too bad for us in the Midlands. Heres a few of my stats from this system.

Drop of 36 Hpa in 24 hours (well actually around 20 hours)

Bottomed out at 957.2 hPa (adsl) at 1:52pm, Core directly overhead.

17.2mm of rainfall in 12 hours.

Max gust of 44 mph at 5:48am.

All in all not too bad here. **However, there is another storm system on the way for Wednesday, this time for all those areas that didnt see much wind (i.e away from the SW) it looks to be far more potent with inland gusts reaching 60 mph.

Yes  calming down here a bit to now, managed 59.2 mph gust at 16:17 this afternoon, with a low of 960 hPa at 10:08 this morning, no more rain and another neighbours green house is a tangled heap. :(
Could of been much worse, watched the news earlier.

Guesting around 30mph now and 987.3 hPa, no rain since 9:42 this morning.

We ended up with 9.1mm rain a low baro of 965.4 around 4pm and max wind gust of 45mph which is not as high as only ten days ago when we got 59mph with no where near the low baro reading. Anyway the train ride ended up uneventful, got there and back safely.

Good to hear your safe Stuart, we had 7 trees down in my county and a
few structural damages but other than not it was pretty calm
considering the hype, perhaps tonight/tomorrow will be more interesting :)

Can I just say with all the hype on this storm for my area it was a bit of a let down  :(

But then only weather nuts would say this .........  :D :D

I had more excitment yesterday when the water tank in my loft sprung a leak (why?) and I had to mop out the two inches of water in the loft before it crashed through the ceiling. Then run down to Wicks buy a new tank,get it through the loft hatch hole..no mean feat...and then plumb it into the system ....then when I went to turn on the central heating to dry out the bedroom ceilings  it would not come on! ...so after a lot of swearing and jumping about..and the wife taking cover..lol... discovered the pilot light in the gas boiler had been blown out by the wind!! #-o #-o

Relatively "normal" here. Very little rain, steady 35/38 mph winds.

Thank goodness for the Grampians. How often have we said this :wink:
Expecting this second system to possibly catch us with Southerly and Easterly draughts.
