I cycle around the Fylde a good deal and always check the weather forecast before I go. I often find, however, that the wind speed and direction bear little relation to the forecast. I appreciate that the sea has a lot of influence on the wind but I can`t work out exactly how - it seems to have a mind of its own. Any ideas?

Phil,

The wind in these parts, I've found from experience, is variable according to which direction I'm facing. If I cycle south towards Cleveleys, the wind comes from the south and blows sand in my eyes. If I cycle north, it comes from the north. I've even tried changing direction mid cycle and the wind simply follows suit, battering relentlessly into my eyes and up my nose until it becomes extremely painful. I've reached the conclusion that there's some sort of wind-magnet lodged in my forehead.
