In like a lion

Storm Force Gusts & Gale Hours

Quite an accurate yellow warning for strong wind, if not a little over blown (pardon the pun) from the great Oz down at the end of the yellow brick road some like to call the M5. They missed the 75 mph gusts and 13 hours of gales at Lerwick, but what the hell, they are tough up there. In contrast I noticed that Met Eireann issued a red warning for a gust of 83 mph at Mace Head, and even AEMet have an amber warning out for a force five, so what do we do if it happens in Scotland – totally forget it!
