How are my words patronizing, you literally just put a paragraph together without saying anything? I’m still trying to understand what you mean. Obviously in the most arrogant pompous American cowboy accent I can convey through text.

Do look further back in the thread where it's clearly stated that there were gusts of 165 mph recorded by meteorological services in the UK. And you might believe what ever you want, the forum tagline is "Deny ignorance." With all due respect I am in no mood discussing with you further, so I digress before I begin the personal attacks.

DIRECT LINK TO CAIRNGORM WEATHER STATION

(The data available to the public is only updated every 6 hours, but you can already see that at 2pm the wind was over 135mph... and rising fast!)

Wth are you talking about she/he? Why are attempting to make this a personal attack. 165mph gust is still within the range of norm of a strong low pressure in that part of Europe. Now I have yet to see a confirmed weather station reporting 165mph. 75mp is the highest I’ve seen and indeed models are indicating winds decreasing. As for my avatar I like looking at her every time I post, is there a problem with that?

Hi,
If you look at my previous post, you'll see a link to cairngorm weather station where winds over 130mph are clearly recorded around 2pm this afternoon. The data is only updated every 6 hours (for the public) and the winds were rapidly increasing from those figures on the last update.

So, I think we can show that a high of over 75mph does indeed exist?

Hope this helps,
regards,
GTD

No worries, Texas gets this kind of weather all the time.
Where's your evidence of Texas getting 120mph+ winds?

The gfs and euro model say you have only a few more hours of high winds.
Correct

Dont freak out,
If you'd read the thread you'd know us Brits are not freaking out. Infact we were having a jolly good time until....

i love weather
So do we, we get LOTS of it! Lol!

and this is all in the range of norm.
For Britain yes


"How are my words patronizing,"
See above

" you literally just put a paragraph together without saying anything?"
Did I? Thought I had...ho hum...

" I’m still trying to understand what you mean."
Sorry

"Obviously in the most arrogant pompous American cowboy accent I can convey through text."
There you go!...you said it...arrogant.
By the way I like cowboys...the real kind.

Now we've provided you with proof of our 165mph winds, where's yours for Texas? See not all things are bigger in Texas! Please try and understand the British humour!

Chill out, your avatar makes people wonder as to what sex you are, thats all.....not surprising really.

And 165Mph is the strongest gust so far, it's on all the major news channels, take it as the fact that it is.

Are you seriously giving me the wind speed at the top of a mountain, are you an ignoramus or a troll? Do you realize that mountain wind speeds are not a comparison in valley or lower elevation? Mountain wind speeds will always be higher would you like me to explain the multiple reasons why? First the elevation alone puts them closer to the jet stream. Next the mountains create there own climate as warmer valley air rises against colder mountain air. I cannot believe you’re using summit winds as a source, which would be like me saying I have 60mph winds in Texas but in Colorado they are approaching 100mph as if you can even compare? Apples and oranges.

I don't think anybody said that the wind was 165mph everywhere?
It was reported that the wind had "gusted up to" 165mph, and it had.

Here's the photo of the data FROM A WEATHER STATION, like you requested.



Oh, and no, I'm not an ignoramous or anything else that you care to try and insult me with.

kindest regards,
GTD

Whether its at the top of a mountain, or in my underpants after a vindaloo, 165Mph is still 165Mph!

Why are you even participating in this thread if all you are going to do is critisise the people who are living through this storm right now (and call them trolls for giving you factual information)?

Sling yer hook!

I am with you Jane, we are surrounded by sea, at the moment very mean sea. 9 RNLI callouts so far. Not saying anything more before I get banned forever.

Shhh for a minute, you have to understand the weather is one of our favourite pastimes and to have winds recorded at 165mph whether atop a mountain or not is something we over this side of the pond can say next year.......here mate remember the wind we had last December...........much rather have it now than this six feet of snow


Who cares what the wind speed is or who has the worst storms, regardless where you are when the weather turns bad people will be affected, hurt or killed, so stop trying the "we have bigger winds / storms than you"

Apart from the above if Romo has another stink of December then the Cowboys need to get rid !!!

Because there is no comparison, I replied to this thread because I am very interested in meteorology and wanted to reassure you that you are safe and that minimal damage is at best. Please do prepare but don’t over react, for instance if you have a high profile vehicle don't drive at winds 60mph or above. Apparently I come off way to sarcastic and know it all for you brits. In reality I will be very blunt about these situations, I hope no life is lost but I’m not doomsday or unrealistic. If you all don’t like my tone I really don’t care, I was just trying to inform you that your house isn’t about be torn to pieces and your dogs caught in an updraft. Just take it easy do about your daily business and all is well. I got the feel from this thread as many others that earth is collapsing global warming is killing us all and everyone’s going to die, I just wanted to add a breath of sanity to this thread.

We're a few mph away from reporting the fastest winds in recorded history, but don't worry folks because some Yank from Texas(an oxymoron, I know) has seen worse in his part of the world

Maybe we all mock Texas next time they have a drought and people suffer, by laughing it off and pointing to countries that have it worse on a yearly basis


If America was rigged with nukes and I had a big red button that place wouldn't be safe, i'd be reaching for it every time I come on ATS and read this blatant Yankery

That's because we have the common sense to build our houses with brick, Yanky.

Haven't been to the pub, never touched my tinnies but have scranned all my crisps and nibbles.

Hasn't been that bad here but it's still bloody cauld out and blowing a bit of a hooligan.
Certainly haven't had it anywhere near as bad as our Jockish bretheren.

Hope everyone's ok.

Right, caught up on Terra Nova, think it's The Soprano's next.
