Batten down the hatches for tomorrow and Sunday looks like we’re in for a windy weekend.

There will be some stormy coastal scenes, for sure. I just hope my garden fence survives it - I could do without the expense of replacement just now! Stay safe everybody and watch out for falling branches etc.

I've been out doing some reinforcing, as long as the wind comes from the South-West the Wirral is mostly at least partly protected except for New Brighton. Lets hope it doesn't turn to the North-West.

Watch out for the second blast on Tuesday as well.

Considering the ground is so wet, I hope there aren't any 'top heavy trees' that fall, but I don't think the winds will be strong enough for that to happen. Probably plenty of branches (old wood) in my area , they come down at the drop of hat.

Garden fence is still in position, though there's a long day ahead yet!

I wouldn't be surprised if a few trees go from the lever causeway. They have cut through the supporting roots one side with a cycle track and with a trench for the new gas main on the other!.

Still, Boris is going to plant trillions more isn't he!

Ouch - that doesn't sound good for the trees there. Planting trees is only the first step, anyway. Someone has to look after them and water them to make sure they don't croak in the first year. What was that old rhyme? 'Plant a tree in '73, plant some more in '74, some alive in '75, dead as sticks in '76' - or somethiing like that!

'Croak' , Greenwood ? Never heard of croaking trees. Another form of evolution I suspect laugh

Got a couple of friends on a short cruise. They left Bruges to sit this storm out , not sure how far out but I bet they've had enough now. Very tiring being bounced around all day (by the heavy seas)

Haha, now that would make the headlines! 'Hearts of croak are our ships' etc... I do NOT envy your friends, at sea in this weather. There was a particularly violent squall with very heavy rain late this morning; my friend in the Midlands seemed to receive it early afternoon - they lost three fence panels. Don't know if the high tide overtopped any defences round Wirral - hope not. Flooding is certainly a problem elsewhere in the country, Yorkshire in particular.

Looks like certain areas have been badly hit. We here, do escape a lot of the vile weather conditions and feel very lucky.

This is an interesting map. I can go all around the world in my front room.

Forgot to say, if you click on any given point it gives wind speeds in MPH , left hand corner

Someone else shared that on my Facebook today; it's quite mesmerising, isn't it?
