Perhaps he could pop a small signpost on his roof, and direct it northwards for us .

It seems to be collapsing, which is not reflected in the computer models (yet) but my spidey sense tells me is a good thing.

Usually Windfinder is pretty reliable, but the current prediction of SW 3-4 might be the worst case.

Edit: Jersey Met Office are saying something similar, coincidence I am sure:

I agree, the synoptic charts suggest better than the forecasts from both Jersey and Windfinder. Alderney is looking a bit breezy according to them.

Model-based predictions are moderating all the time, unless someone can see something in the charts that indicates otherwise I would plan for conditions being F3 on Friday.

We will certainly know more tomorrow.
