"Earlier on today apparently a lady rang the BBC and said she heard that there was a hurricane on the way. Well don't worry if you're watching, there isn't."

Same here

As of Tuesday afternoon it was saying the same thing for here in Telford too, 300 - 400 mph winds for the next seven days. Except for between midnight and 3AM next Monday morning when they briefly drop to about 8mph.

Must be quite localised

Just come back from taking the dog out for a walk, a bit chilly but bright and sunny and not too much of a breeze.

The only Tornados I've seen today is a couple of GR4's flying too low for comfort, belting past at an alarming rate of knots on their way back to Marham.

Us Norfolk types can cope with a little rough weather. Though I will make sure that it is safe and warm indoors for my wife and sister. She does feel the cold after all.

drag factor?

I'm sure webbed fingers and toes are great for swimming, but they're a bugger when you're trying to reduce your wind co-efficient.

Seems to be a recurring theme

This happened for East Lothian addresses over the new year as well - they had me all set for the Apocalypse, but it didn't seem to come to much...

Google humour?

Those ads by Google deserve a second look. A golf break for the skeptical, or secure storage (which might survive rather better than the average house) for the gullible. Well spotted, Googlebot-AIs.

Re: Huricane

Well, it wasn't.

*Technically* it was high winds.

NOTE: The model (from what I heard from friends who work there), got it right, but such weather models are run several times with slight changes to see what may happen if the numbers are off.

One result had it moving north and hitting the UK and another result had it continuing onward and giving france the pasting it so richly deserves.

That one was picked (with a lot of justification, the track was already going that way), and the model output saying it would hit the UK was deemed unlikely and thrown away.

Hardly on the same par...

As when the BBC broadcast similar winds on their maps, and described 20 cms of snow as almost an inch:
