Has SW England got a wind warning for today? It's just a bit blustery. 

Even out at Lands End it's only a F5-6. Here in Penzance F4-5, even down the prom

Windier up in Wales. but even there nothing of note that I can see.

Very big sea on the north coast yesterday removed feet of sand from the whole length of Sennen beach in just 2 high tides. Significant wave  height still 10-15ft today

Well, maybe N Wales, especially the Lleyn peninsula & Anglesey, but that's a long, long way from here.

Shorts wearing weather it would appear.

Nice wave in the bottom picture. Bit of wave refraction onto a sandbar  / slight headland?  What a surfer would call a lefthander. Start at the peak and head left as the wave peaks in that direction.

Shorts are amazingly popular here even in cold windy conditions.  I guess that might be because kilts these days seem to be reserved for formal occasions.

A few years ago I was able to find out what /if a Scotsman wears under his kilt - and I was shocked.  I was on deck on a ferry and a group of men were on their way to a wedding.  The wind blew up one man's kilt and revealed the truth: not a true mix and match.  He was wearing pants with a tartan that was not the same clan as his kilt.

That's truly shocking and a probably a big disappointment for the ladies.
