Morning all, well the gale duly arrived and it's also lashing down with rain. However, it's not as bad as Monday's storm and we'll see the end of this blow by the end of the afternoon. Another gale will come to see us later tomorrow, but that should hopefully be the end of it. For now. Lashing it down in Stornoway, galeforce winds over at the airport, increasing over the last hour or two. Back-end of the rain, and the promised windshift, in sight on radar, but probably still a few hours away. For a while in the afternoon, Cromwell Street was closed to all vehicles and pedestrians from North Beach Street to Bayhead, including Perceval Sq. There was an awful lot of windnoise, and Cromwell Street was acting like a windtunnel. Later on, the winds abated and the ferry was able to make a delayed run to Ullapool. Only one more gale to go!
