Sunday is looking interesting!!
The latest Synoptic chart from the Met office picks this up very well. Mod to fresh SSW winds with troughs of showers some heavy and possibly thundery with gusty winds.

It's not looking good, most sites are saying high winds on Sunday from the south with the possibility of thunder and lightning......

Don't put yer back pedlin' boots on just yet. They've been threatening T&L here since the weekend, it didn't happen.

Let's give it a few more hours.

Adam, what's your take on this right now?

No, we've bought a place over there and we're setting up a ribbing commune. We're seeking joiners if you're interested, clothes are optional.

Leave me out.

Maxi and Sticky could be heard 25Nm off and were mistaken for Wolf Rock lighthouse.

Going over seems fine - only concern is wind and rain on Sunday - what do you think?
High storm chance in the afternoon - but we should be back by then...
What do you think?

We need to be back in Penzance before we loose the water, so if we have a slow trip back we will just have to leave a bit earlier.

Looks like it will be a force 4/5 coming back blowing from the south?

Got to drive over 300 miles early tomorrow to get to PZ so I could do with knowing sooner rather than later.

The problem is that low pressure sitting near by and it's making the weather difficult to call....

Any other thoughts?
