Wow, that is a big wind.

It has been up around 40kn all day here, I think Jersey are feeling the worst of it locally.

Dover Coastguard had a 61kn.

According to Jersey Airport we've only had around 25-28 knots, feels like more though

It's gusting at 40 kts down here (near Hastings). I'm driving down there in a minute to take a look - I love seeing the sea in anger!
