    It's now complete blue skies with a few whisps of thin white cloud up in North Wales :eek: Slight breeze though.

    The sky here in Solihull is yellow. Looks like an old photograph

    Its really weird here now - at times the sky goes pale white except near the horizon towards the storm which is kind of pearly silver, then goes back to a menacing orange every now and again.

    It's getting even darker here now.

    That's what it looks like here too.

    Almost makes me wish we had more of this.

    The light [I'm in Mid Devon] has been amazing all morning, with the same orange sun reported in many locations, then about an hour ago it all cleared and we're left with blue (but still dirty looking) sky... The wind here is moderate, with the odd stronger gust. Anyone from Cornwall here that can report on the sea state?... we're off down there next weekend and may catch the next system, that's also looking quite powerful.

    Conditions in Ireland seem to be quite difficult, with very high mean speeds and powerful gusts.

    None of the negative effects of the storm here in the south east, obviously. However, it is indeed very mild for the time of year. Walked outside in jeans and tee-shirt earlier for the light jacket I'd usually wear, even at 7AM. Feels a little odd.

    Roches Point, which is south east of Cork has reported a ten minute mean speed of 69mph, which is a new record.

    The sea here at Ayr is like a mill pond, but the world is sepia tinted.

    North of England here the sky has gone a bit of a yellowy colour and the sun is red. When exactly does the world end?
