As I moor my boat on the Broads but live in North Yorkshire, can anyone tell me what the weathers been like down there.
Up in Yorkshire the winds are topping 90mph with heavy rain and causing structural damage. Already lost my porch roof and greenhouse. Im a bit concerned about my boat.

I've been messing with a weather info section (which is to the right of the top banner). I'll add the moon phase, and maybe a current pic soon.

I would appreciate any comments, suggestions for additions - the accuracy !

Cheers

Richard

Hi Stewart

I was down by the river at Potter Heigham today. It was still blowing hard and big waves were racing up the river. There has been some rain but water levels are generally low compared to where they have been recently.

None of the riverside bungalows were damaged (apart from the odd fence down). I have had the roof blown off mine in the past.

Woodwose was quite happy but pressed hard against the side of the boat dock. One of the fenders was squashed flat.

I saw no damaged boats.

In short, it has been stormy but not really bad enough to worry about.

A couple of comments on your weather information which is a good idea:

1. I would prefer degrees C to degrees F which have not been used here for many years. Subtract 32, divide by 9, multiply by 5. It's all a bit difficult.

The wind speed seems to say 26 mph with 16 mph gusts. Usually the gusts are faster than the average wind speed not slower.

Oh, I forgot to say that in the UK we normally use millibars for pressure measurements rather than inches of mercury. I have not seen that method for years.

I see you have sorted it already.

Quick work and a really good idea.

I think I got the pressure correct too. Now why is it I can buy a 10 kilo bag of spuds, or 3 lbs loose ?

and when we go to the woodyard we still ask for  3 metres of 2 by 2 !

I have an electronic weather 'thingy' on my roof (in a very exposed position, overlooking the marshes and river between Ludham & Horning), and the maximum gust in the last two days was 50.56 mph with the winds averaging 40mph during the day yesterday (Saturday).
