Default Severe in West Cornwall

Take a look at www.sennen-cove.com/lbtdy.htm 30'+ on the beaches.
Looking at Sevenstones the swell still seems to be increasing.

Strongest gust I've seen so far was at Land's End 87mph at 07:29.
Scilly's been 80mph. We've had thunder as well.

I think stormy sums it up!

It seems all the action is happening further west and south of here! No
gales here (it was windier yesterday), just a few showers, a bit of sunshine
and the odd gust to 25 mph.

Currently at 10:00, 8.6C, RH 84%, DP 5.3C, 979.7 mb (F), Wind 15 mph WSW.

I've noticed that the wind direction at the Stones always seems to be
different to the stations nearby - St Mary's, Penzance, Culdrose, Camborne.
Anyone got any ideas why this should be?

Mike - I've also spotted that of late. It's showing a veer of 20-30
degrees compared to nearby stations. As to cause, I'd have to guess an
instrument sensor fault/drift.

Thanks Mike. Since mentioning it, it seems to have settled down and the
arrows are all lining up nicely now.

Sevenstones always seems to agree with nearby stations with a NW, but
back the wind slightly to westerly and it jumps to S or SW. There may
be a reason for this, perhaps the wind gets deflected the other side
of Land's End, but it does look a bit iffy at times.

I forgot to mention, part of Penzance station roof has blown off.
Could be a good thing. It was replaced a while back, but the new
design meant that the fumes from the engines couldn't escape. In order
to prevent the mass deaths of potential passengers the high speed
trains have had to stop outside the actual station building ever
since.
