I see that Manston is forecasting a wind speed of 65 knots this afternoon, which is pretty scary, so best tie-down any small animals and chimney pots.
The weather isn't set to improve again until Sunday and then it's forecast to get cold. If this is global warming we can expect much worse as the North Atlantic warms and feeds these large polar front depressions in winter. Lord knows what the weather will be like in five years at the present rate of change. Hurricanes over Margate perhaps?
