Wind and rain lashed, but 5 minutes later when I was about to open a gate near the turbine in the background a squall of uncommon violence struck. Not so much as rain, more a wall of water. It lasted for about 10 blasting minutes before subsiding then the cloud descended, reduced visibility to a few metres. the turbines were hardly visible. Time was about 13.00.
Holyhead port staff reported a squall of equal violence a little later at about 13.30.
