Default [WR] Gale Copley (lee slope effect?)

Is the current gale in Copley another lee slope gale or does it cover a
wider area? Anyone else getting it?
Mean speed for the past hour 2020Z-2120Z 35kn (F8). Highest 10min speed
37kn(F8) at 2050Z-2100Z.
I hope it's a Pennine wave, a couple of hours and it will be gone.
Otherwise a restless night is on the cards!

It's almost certainly a lee effect, Ken. The classic warm sector flow from
the SW. Blackpool was 20mph, Liverpool 9mph and Linton (on t'other side of
Pennines) only 14mph recently.

Nothing much here Ken, so must be localised.
Mind you my garden readings are pretty meaningless, but hope to get the
anenometer up on the roof soon!

Maximum was between 2100 and 2200 with F6 NW'ly, gusting to the low
30's mph. It's now dropped to F4 at 0000. Stupidly warm again, 8C.

Hi again,

Not the usual wave effect, it kept up all night, so a straightforward(!)
lee slope. Mean speed so far today 00Z-09Z is 32kn(F7) Highest 10min was
0700Z-0720Z at 40kn and max gust, exactly the same as Trevor's, was
61mph.

At least it's mild (;0)

ATB from one very tired weather nut.

Hi,

Same here Ken - I kept thinking our roof was blowing off!!! It made for a
restless night for me!!!.

Still a bit windy here but decreasing a bit.

Shows up beautifully on the reports from Leeming and Teesside airfields at
(more or less) the same time

EGXE 301000Z 23015G37KT

EGNV 300950Z 15005KT 040V250



Leeming (EGXE) has wind from 230 at 15 knots, gusting 37

Teesside (EGNV) has wind from 150 at 5 knots but variable in direction
between 040 and 250 (which in practice, means from any direction)



Landing at Teesside (which I used to do a lot in the past) would be quite
fun in those conditions. Probably a rotor effect giving quite a rough ride
and major attention to power settings on the approach. Oh the good old
days. Used to enjoy conditions like that! (Not so sure about the
passengers though)
