I spend too much time checking weather charts - if I know the surf's going to get good, I'm clicking the refresh button on the web a couple of minutes before the next forecast model gets posted onto the Web. If its looking good then I'll check back again just to make sure. I'm going to blog weather on here and try to explain what's going on. These ramblings will focus on an area from Roche westwards although I reserve the right to go off piste occasionally.

A draughty old day thanks to hurricane Gonzales.
Our satellite imagery picked up some cracking images as the storm wound up to the west of the UK and swung out into the North Sea.
At one o'clock, Gonzales' remnants were out in the North Sea and a north westerly gale was blowing a hooley across all of Britain in its wake. As you'd expect, the really big gusts were tangled up with the showers.
