Default A Stormy day in the far SW.

Not that much rain yesterday (5.1mm in Penzance) but the wind & sea conditions were certainly notable.

The strongest official gust (not strictly in Cornwall) was Scilly, No 4 in Colin's Top 10, @ 66kn. but 60kn peak speeds also occured on Cornish cliff tops, including near Lands End & St Ives.

Sea conditions also very poor. Porthleven really took a hammering, with the sea running along the road. Photographically, shame it was dark.

The peak SWH was during a lull in the winds during the early hours of today, a sizeable 8m out at Sevenstones, still around 7m.

It's all removed a fair bit of sand from the beaches. A huge wave at Sennen this morning with big wave setup surges

The long period probably explains why there's been so much sand removed

8.2 mm here for the 24 hrs to 1800.
Line convection went through at 1657 UTC. A vicious squall for a few minutes but no hail and no thunder.
Gusting to 65 mph and severe gale 9 from South. Rearranging of sand on Wembury beach as usual. Had the odd man o war jellyfish washed up.

Too right it was a bit stormy. Crazy on the coast and a crazy lot of
kite surfers looking like they're risking it somewhat out in Lyme Bay.

The sand was being removed by the wind and settling nicely on the road
behind the beach. I suspect it might be blocked now by sand drifts.

Gusts to 60 mph yesterday and today well in excess of that with my
maximum gust at 67 mph.

My poor weather pole has taken a battering. I've added to it over the
years and now it offers a more resistance to the wind and was bending at
an alarming amount in the bug gusts this afternoon.

Not much rain though until a squall line went through and mild with the
temperature hovering around 13C for much of the day.

Thankfully, something calmer for the weekend and next week.

Mean temperature now running at around 2C above normal with 8.3C.

It has been a very mild winter.

So far (since 1/12/19) only 4 days have failed to reach 10C, the lowest maximum.being 8.9C on 1st December.

As with you, the mean temperature is running 2C or so above normal.

It is looking good for a few days, and still not cold, just near normal. It may result in the the sand returning to the beaches, especially if a swell continues. I don't think the sea's been powerful enough to take the sand out too far.

Windy again today but gusts not as strong as yesterday.
65 mph yesterday, 60 mph today.
Rain has been more persistent though keeping going through the evening.
In excess of 10 mm but nothing like as up on Dartmoor at Postbrige at 369 m where they have had 48 mm. Now that's orographic enhancement for you.
Looking forward to a dry weekend.
