High pressure. Yet really windy?

Post #1 by GarbageBags » Fri Jun 22, 2018 4:54 pm

Hello.

I have a question. What is the deal with having pretty Intense wind's, during stable high pressure events? It happened in the last mini heatwave and its happening again now. Pretty damn high winds. Yet I check the charts and the isobars are really far apart. I check the forecast and it's like 5mph winds forecast. Yet its really blowy. This is particularly bad on Loch lomond where it an be an actual "strong gale" when it's forecast to be calm. I don't get it? I'm not near the coast particularly
