Just chilling at home watching sky news in the uk sky channel 501.
Francis Wilson a well known weather reporter has said on sky news weather that tomorrow will be very windy and that there could be a few tonados across the middle of England coming from the west.
I have tried looking on sky news website but I can not find the story.
Has anyone else heard about this?

Just thought I'd warn my fellow members in the UK.

Thanks for the warning, my daughter is travelling back to the midlands tomorrow morning - I'll tell her to watch out!

I don't remember tornados in England when I was young, but lately there seem to have been several, there was one a few weeks ago near me in Brighton.

living here in the central south, it too is mighty windy, (gladly atm without the rain), im a school liveonsite sitemanager and we lost a flag pole and all the felt off the cycle shed roofs, i was going to repare friday but it still looks very choppy.
i was woken 4 times in the night with crashes and thumps from outside,
and with the amount of debris strewn across the ground if it gets worse there may be a need for an early weekend for the kids.

personnaly i feel for the people who have lost belongings through wind and flood, but i do love the power of nature.

Not only in the UK is it windy...

Here in the Netherlands is has been storming and raining all day long. I just took a quick visit to the outside world and I could hardly set steps forward when walking against the wind.

Haven't seen anything damaged yet though.

Well, I'm in Manchester and last night my new house leaked in the extension quite extensively following serious wind and hard rain.

This has continued all day today in Manchester. It's seriously windy today and not getting any better. I'll be keeping my eye out for a tornado as today, it wouldn't suprise me one bit.

We've had tiles come off the roof at work and the windows have shaken pretty violently at times. Obviously the girls in the office find it funny but they wont be laughing when they have to leave at 5.30 to catch a bus.

Yep, been a pretty breezy day here today (Coventry Airport - in the middle of England - reported winds gusting to 65mph) but so far there have been no report of any tornadoes.

Any tornadoes would have been during the passage of the cold front that was stretched across the Midlands earlier this morning and has since moved off into the continent. However it was never deemed enough of a risk to issue an actual Tornado Watch.

(Worth noting that in the UK tornadoes are rarely more that about F1 in strength and usually only last a few seconds or a most minutes on the ground)

Yes it was very windy in Norfolk too, our power was out for about 2 hours 20 mins around 12 midday.

There was a lot of rain too, St Ives in Cambridgeshire was flooded (at least partly) and a few trees blown down where shown on the news too.

My garden is a mess, fences down, bits of trees and my shed contents are half way around the garden... looks like a junk yard so i'm going to have to get a skip! lol

Nearly got in a crash this morning, a big dip on the motor way had filled with water we went straight into it and all the water came up over the car and we could not see ! Scary stuff!

I just hope this passes over quick,

So take care UK'ers. and gosh my ears keep popping! 0-0

The weathers really windy here in sheffield as well. It can actually get quite loud in the gusts as well. It was like it yesterday as well. I'm quite glad I'm inside really.

Looks like its over now but what a crazy day!

Lots of cars hit by trees, one of the trees near me must be a hundred years old and it was totally uprooted! a nearby building had its corrugated front ripped off and my neighbours house was stripped of guttering.. oh and my aerial got blown off the chimney taking 2 bricks with it!

My thoughts go out to the families who lost someone out there to the weather today.

Where are the old british winters with clear skies, frosty mornings and snow (not at the same time)?... I think we may see it next week!

Do you want snow that much? the transport system, particularly the roads, always grind to a halt with just 1 cm of snow. Still snow is quite fun.
