Huge tidal surges and monster waves towering to 30ft have battered the south-west, Wales and are spreading northwards, flooding huge areas, smashing roads and causing transport chaos. Areas like Salcombe in Devon, top left, West Bay in Dorset, bottom left, and Lyme Regis, right, are flooded after huge waves crashed over sea defences. A coastal road in Amroth, west Wales, has disintegrated because of the force of the sea, centre. But there is more bad news because experts say more torrential rain, gale-force winds and the highest tide expected in all of 2014 will hit tonight. There are currently 21 severe flood warnings in place - the highest level - and 500 lower alerts across the UK today, with people being warned to stay away from the coast and swollen rivers.

I went to Brighton today. The sea looked very frightening and brown in colour. A bit like this....



We had a hard job trying to walk, it was so windy. Came back through Lewes, where there was bad thunder and lightening.

It looks as though the weather it's going to be really bad over the weekend.

I hope my beloved Weymouth is alright! I'll have to go down there and, like some kind of female King Canute, order back the waves.....

Gads... some fierce!

Up here in Coom-bria the Irish Sea is howling along with the wind. Not keen on walking down to the cove and braving gusts that are making the street lamps judder and sway, though. Nary a gull in the sky today; sheltering in place is not just for us without feathers, apparently.

@Cantata, take up thy sword and command! :cavalier

I adore Carlisle; people there are the salt of the earth. Almost moved there a while back.
Every time I think of having a hols up that way, all I can think of is the tourists who swathe themselves in plaid and go rushing into all the pubs and crawl around the castle like ants at a picnic. :hahano:

I DID go out and got mesel' down to the cove after the pub closed and the streets were empty. The waves were thrashing at the shore and the boats in and out of deep troughs and straining at their moorings. It's too far for me to walk, really, but.... Wild. So beautiful.
Hours later now, and the storm seems to have calmed. But we've had this wind (and sometimes lashing rain) time and again for two weeks now. Maybe this is the weather pattern we will have this winter.
Hope everyone in the southern counties are safe and warm.

And more to come tomorrow it seems...

www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-25606031

Some roads remain closed and train services disrupted as the UK reels from a spell of powerful storms.

Dozens of flood warnings remain in place in parts of the UK, with forecasters also warning that strong winds and large waves on Monday could cause further coastal flooding.

High winds and waves caused flooding in Northern Ireland, while heavy rain is forecast in southern Wales and England.

Its not been too bad here in Manchester, but my son was having real problems on friday trying to book his train ticket back to university in Exeter....they were all being cancelled.

It's really bad here again tonight. I think I made the right decision in staying home and not braving the trip to the West Country this weekend.

My son finally got a train booked for this lunchtime (at a far higher price than the one's he was trying to book for saturday).

He should be safely in Exeter by now hopefully. He had to be back by today....exams tomorrow.

That's a shame, but at least he managed to get a train. :)

I'm going to get a lift down next week and then catch the train back. Hopefully the weather will have calmed down a bit by then.
