    So, of course, the worst storm of the year is forecast...

    No, it's not the equinox!

    You had me worried there, I wasn't ready. Fortunately, we've still got 6 days to gear up for it.

    I haven't noticed any storms. Am I missing out? The equinoctial springs don't look very terrifying, either.

    Curious. Met office UK outlook Saturday 22nd to Monday 1st Oct says:

    . . . However, through Saturday wet and windy weather is expected to arrive in some areas, perhaps pushing across the UK on Sunday. Atlantic weather systems are then likely to continue to arrive from the west through the rest of the period bringing generally wetter conditions in the northwest, and drier conditions persisting for longest in the southeast. Strong winds are likely at times, particularly in the northwest with a low risk of gales. . .

    When looking at forecast on XC I thought I was seeing things! Going to boat on Thursday to put extra lines out just in case!

    Forecast shows sun on Saturday until early evening... then one hell of a downpour. ..

    Hope we stay dry for SIBS.

    Sunday Sept 23rd

    Slight difference between the two models. GFS top, ECMWF bottom.

    Which will be closest?

    Tillergirl, it's European Centre for Meteorology and Weather Forecasting I rate their mid term weather forecast over GFS by a country mile... Still means strong winds in the south Sunday though
