The wind really picked up here late afternoon, and just claimed its first flight of the day at the Airport. The TUIFLY from Cologne has just diverted to Lisbon. Only 3 more flights due in from Lisbon, two will be here shortly and the last just before midnight.
The island will stay on Yellow Alert for strong seas, and rain showers through till at least Saturday, and the Mountains will also have an Orange Alert for strong winds. So still a bit of an unsettled time to come yet.
Update 21.45…. Both Lisbon flights are in a holding pattern, there may be a break in the weather, but not looking good.
