Probably the latter Jim, but I cannot recall ever seeing it that low before! It is not as windy here as expected (at the moment) though.

The Met Office has said that record low pressure for November was recorded at the centre of the depression; 953.3 at Plymouth, 958.5 at St Athans.

Don't know if that'll help you calibrate your barometers.

We seem to have escaped the worst of it in this part of mid-Sussex. None of the trees in the wood behind us have come down. Despite our situation on top of a hill, we still managed to get a small lake in our back garden (our bedrock is Wealden clay). Oh yes, and our dustbin blew over... Our son and his family live in Hove, but we haven't had any cries for help from them so we assume they are OK.

Keep safe all.

Cheers,

Thank you Martyn @martyn , I think my barometer is wrong - it must be about 80 years old and a heirloom! At least the pointer is going up and down the right direction.

Cheers,

Calibration is best done when a slow moving high is sitting over the UK, giving very similar pressure over a large area and not changing much. Then look at your nearest official weather stations and adjust your barometer to match.

In Tenterden I'm enjoying my own micro climate. I had planned to stay indoors and get on with "stuff" but, despite being between Hastings and Dover (Albeit inland), there's not been enough wind to blow the leaves off the trees and I've even managed to do a spot of gardening.

Picked my last Cucumber, pruned the roses, cut back a Clematis and admired my one remaining Holyhock stem.

It was pretty violent down here.

In fact there will now be a scramble to move layouts under the new panel as it's soooooo much lighter ????

You mean that you didn't bother to clean the one next to it while you (or whover) was up there?   :D

And yet places either side of us got clobbered.

Very fortunate here in my area of east Berkshire; some rain and a bit blustery but just like a normal, autumn night/day.

It actually got a column in the local rag here!

Here in Norfolk we didn't get that much wind, but we have a lot of flooding, it's not deep but it is widespread.





I should be sailing today, but it's been cancelled, we can't get near the boats due to the floods.
According to reports it's now deeper than that photo, the big car park is flooded, as is the big supermarket,  that's the multi pitch roof building.
