I was driving down to Penzance from Helston and the wind was F2/3 from WSW at 17:40.
At 18:00 it was F8 gusting F10(68mph) the wind was now blowing from NNW and the temp had dropped from 9 degrees to
5 degrees in sleety hail.
The back curl in this developing depression sure has a sting in it's tail forcing down air from high up causing the temp drop and violent wind gusts.
An old Cornish saying: The difference between Summer and Winter is 10 degrees. ( not today though )

RIBase
Walked out of my back door today into sunshine, birdsong and calm. Went back inside, came out ten minutes later into a dark squall of lashing trees, hail and cold misery. Ducked back in, came out ten minutes later into sunshine, birdsong and calm... go figure:
