Strongest Gust Ever

We experienced the strongest wind gust here yesterday at Borth and Ynyslas since I began recording the weather in 2005. The wind peaked just after dark at 16:29, hitting 62.6 knots (thats just over 72mph).

It had been fairly windy on and off for the past few days, but nothing quite like this. 20-30 knots was about the average throughout the day but you can see from the chart below that at around 4:30pm just after the barometer readings had hit a low for the day there was an almighty gust that coincided with a squall and a torrential downpour. The temperature also dropped from 11C to 9C.
