Default Penzance - Horrendous conditions.

It was very windy (near gale) yesterday, with gusts 50mph in places, 60mph at Gwennap Head, but at least it was sunny (until around 16:00) and the temperature reached 11.3C (thought it felt much colder.)

Quite stormy last night, rain & a cliff top gale where the wind was gusting 50mph all night. Gwennap Head https://weatherfile.com/location?loc_id=GBR00026

Currently very windy, very wet & around 6C (minimum 5.7C). I struggle to think of a worse start to the day all of last winter.

On top of all this the magicseaweed forecast for tomorrow near Lands End is a 6' swell from the west, and a 11' swell from the SSE, combined with the effects of the wind, that should lead to an extremely confused sea.

Roll on Tuesday, we've got another 36 hours of this.

Rain light & patchy now, and the wind's decreased a bit.
Still very cold for April

Dry here Graham as we're just to the east of the rain but it's grim
despite the odd, very brief, brighter interlude.

Temperature maximum of 8.5C so far but if feels much colder and raw in
that wind. The sort of wind that seems to suck the warmth out of you.
April days as cold and grim as this are thankfully, very rare.

Yes, roll on Tuesday!

Just back home. After a lull in the rain (as opposed to the wind) It's setting off again. The winds been widely gusting to 50mph, over 60 mph at Gwennap Head all morning. The sea is pouring over the lighthouse pier in Penzance, and the boats that have just been lowered into Penzance harbour for the summer are currently taking as much of a battering as they would have received at any pont in the winter.

I could have done without the cheerful girl on the BBC weather saying what a lovely start it was for most of us. She should try venturing west of the Tamer - that would change her thoughts! The SW weather forecast was saying this morning (& still saying) "Outbreaks of often heavy rain will move into the far west by midday" when I was drenched @ 08:00 this morning running from the car into the railway station by something that was suspiciously like rain, though travelling in a horizontal direction.

The temperature is up on yesterday, if we're not careful it might reach 10C, must put the shorts on.

It's at this point that you might get the impression that I would like a change in the weather, which has been like this for the best part of 40 hours now. Still, at least I haven't got tickets for the Minack https://www.minack.com/a-living-theatre/webcams/ where the last couple of performances were renamed "Hypothermia strikes"

Back to sunny Cornwall tomorrow!

It was surprisingly lovely and sunny here in Devon this morning Graham. Unpleasant wind though.
Forecast was wrong regarding sun though, as was the small amount of rain last night around 10 and 11pm.
Rain has arrived now 1600, as forecast, allowing for a +/- 1 hr error.
