You may well call it 'autumn' in the southern hemisphere ... but up here in the northern hemisphere we call it late spring ... and this is unusual by anyones standards

In Joplin, Missouri the wind is stripping the bark off of the trees.

Its all relative, isn't it? Nevertheless, the weather is on steroids these days. I am thankful that so far here in Southern part of Canada we've had nothing worse than a good soaking for a few weeks now.

Be careful.

So I suspect you have a a bad pressure system with close isobaric packing at the moment. Is this quite out of the ordinary or just a rare event which can sometimes occur?

Either way I love the British Isles. such a beautiful part of our world. Stay safe!

Oh and before I forget us here in the US State of Florida are going to be sweating today as the high is supposed to be 99 (37.2) with very high humidity and a dewpoint above 60 (16). Record breaking heat here.

Very rough here too in North Yorkshire (lot's of debri flying about including dustbins) ... but I have a friend who lives on the Isle of Skye and they are having the kind of weather that they usually get in October (even snow on the peaks).

I can't help wondering if this weather was the reason the 100 strong pod of Pilot Whales currently trying to beach themselves on one of the other western isles knew this was coming ?

I've told her to keep an eye on her animals (for weird behaviour) because there were pods of Pilot Whales in distress and trying to beach themselves days before the Christchurch earthquake and I'm told Japan too (but I have no confirmation for the latter).

Strange times indeed. Woody

It's getting very windy down south too.

The last couple of days have been like it, but has picked up more today. It feels like a little storm is a brewing.

My neighbours windchimes are driving me nuts

I was just thinkin last week how cool it wd be to get some gusty winds .. or a good lightning storm .. just for a change from the norm ..

I guess lightning storm would be better .. less risk of people getting hurt ..

Ive got the windows open .. it is pretty cool listening to the strong whistling .. as bits of debris fly past

Id say rare event which can sometimes occur .... ive seen it like this several times before ... this is about as bad as it gets i think ...
Which is good ... In UK .. i think were quite lucky with weather etc ... no freak storms like we hear of around the world ..
We dont really get any crazy earthquakes either .. or huge poisonous spiders ... yip ... we do like a good moan, especially about the gloomy weather .. but we got it great here .. As in .. not much threatens us .. (touch wood)

ETA - Tho in saying that .. last few winters were severe ... and the floods in the South last few years also ... things seem to be a changin ...

And now the winds have died ... a nice wee hail shower hitting off my window ...

Does anyone think its unusual to get wintry weather like that so late in spring .. its almost June ...

Or is this normal ... i dont always trust my long term memory

Can't believe there are other Arbroathians here! Last night was mental, trampolines & roof panels flying about! Then a wee power cut right in the middle of dinner.

Is that it all over now though?

Normally we get winds like this in autumn or winter when there are no leaves on the trees so there is no resistance to the wind. The fact it has come in spring mean there is more vegitation to blow and more resistance from the trees. Shouldn't really be making a big deal out of it considering the weather our American cousins are having in certain states.

There is something I noticed. Most of the trees in Joplin, in which I have family, and yes, they are safe. The trees were stripped of there limbs and leaves. But....guess what? Most of them are still firmly planted in Mother Earth, in which they are our anchors. Love to all.
