WEATHER – Gale on the North-East Coast

Accreditation The Redcar and Saltburn-by-the-Sea Gazette 03/11/1876


            The fine weather of last week has been succeeded by a violent North North-Westerly gale, which set in on Monday (31/10), and reached its height on Tuesday (31/10) night, when it somewhat abated, though the sea is still very heavy. Both at Saltburn-by-the-Sea and Redcar the tides have been unusually high, the waves breaking over the Coatham Pier promenade and over the sea-wall at Redcar on Tuesday (31/10) afternoon-in fact there had not been such a high tide since February, when the sea on one occasion roles to greater height than had been known for several years previously. Vessels appear to have been very fortunate in making harbour, for there have been no shipping casualties in the neighbourhood of Tees Bay, which presents the appearance of a huge sheet of form. Rain, sleet, and Hill fell at intervals on Tuesday (31/10), and on Wednesday (01/11) morning there was a slight fall of snow in the heavy portion of Cleveland
