Winds at K2

The severe gale force nine W’NW ‘ly at the weather buoy K2 (62081) may be indicative of how strong the winds will get later today across IONA. At 11 UTC the winds measured by the buoy were meaning 43 knots and gusting to 61 knots which is a fair old blow for May. I added a few bogus pressures to the analysis to get a better fit of the contouring with the observations. I also tried to play the game spot the cold and warm front but gave up in the end.
