I am not going anywhere!!!
Becoming very windy, giving gusts of 45-50 mph quite widely across the island. Top temperature 13°C. The gale force south-southwesterly wind will ease slightly early tonight, however significant overtopping of sea water and debris is expected around high tide (~10:40pm), with some minor inner harbour flooding also possible in Douglas & Ramsey. Minimum temperature 9°C.
Rain will continue to affect the island tomorrow, becoming persistent and heavy at times and accompanied by a strong to near gale force south-westerly wind. Highest temperature around 10 or 11°C, but feeling colder in the wind.
Coastal overtopping? that's different.ReplyDelete
Sounds good doesn't it?Delete
"Overtopping"? Sounds like too much milk in your mug of tea. I hope that you and his revered lordship have got an inflatable raft - just in case.ReplyDelete
Overtopping.. according to the Coastal Wiki websiteDelete

Hey, if he has got shed why can't you have one too? He hasn't got a leg to stand on. In this age of equality, women are entitled to their own sheds (i.e. summerhouses) in which they can do exactly as they please.Delete
Snap. Who would live next to the sea? We do😀. I watched A Place In The Sun this morning. It was in the Algarve. I wouldn't mind living next to the sea there.ReplyDelete
Nooo...step away from the TV! You'll be wanting to drink wine and sit on a balcony next 😉Delete
Hope you will be safe! Be careful!ReplyDelete
We have the fire lit, a beef stew in the slow cooker and a bottle of fizz in the 'fridge.Delete
Survival rations 😁
Tell me about it! It's freezing here, although not as wet as forecast - not that it makes much difference. As I type though a huge black cloud has drifted into my eyeline and I feel the rain may not be far away and I've still the dog to walk. Should I go right now and hope I can beat it or wait and see, that is the question!! xReplyDelete
I hope you can outrun it! 🐕 🏃♀️💦Delete

I agree with others - overtopping seems a strange word to use. On the other hand, it pictures it perfectly in the mind's eye.ReplyDelete
It is a term used a lot here...unfortunately.Delete
I miss the sunReplyDelete
Oh yes. I hate all these dark, damp days. Seems endless.Delete
Hey, that looks pretty good to me.ReplyDelete
Just your normal, everyday weather Graham?Delete
Just about, JayCee, although recently it's been even worse.Delete
We seem to have had high pressure for more than two weeks now. The water is so pressed down about 8-10 inches)that the top 4 or 5 inches of the now permanently exposed seaweed has dried out and bleached white. Perhaps all that water has squashed out in your direction.ReplyDelete
We have had so much rain this weekend that our lawn is now a small lake. We may have to buy a small dinghy to reach the woodpile.Delete
