In terms of local weather conditions (London) right now:
We have heavy rain. Heavy enough that seeing the other side of the street from the windows is difficult. Wind - not so much. The odd gust, stripping the leaves off the trees, but nothing major as yet. Our barometer is sinking like a rock. Down to 728 mmHG and still falling.
Our barometer is an (accurate) one from the 1800's. Made in France. At the moment the arrow is pointing firmly at Tempete. It hasn't been that low since '87. It is still dropping.
