  1. If you read my post I was talking about why Spain have named it, theres not a lot of impact for them, and even if you include France the same applies.
  2. Why have the Spanish named this as a storm? It's hardly effecting them at all, maybe a bit of rain thats it.
  3. Yeah I agree, these models seem to be way out, yet people seem to encourage their accuracy over the met office, even the meto app has been spot on. Not even sure where the models are generating their speeds from either as just a quick look at the intensity of the part of the low pressure over the UK could see it wasnt conducive to 70mph winds.
  4. I think its obvious that in many places the models were nowhere near what actually happened last week, same this. The met office have been spot on with their local wind forecasts
  5. Literally nothing here in Hereford again wind wise, obv rain is going to be an issue though. Either this forum gets over excited every time and those gfs models are always way off, or i just live in a sheltered area. Met office has been more modest and correct.
  6. Because in terms of wind its not actuslly going to be that bad, also the fact that with nearly every storm its overhyped by many on here. Not very often a storm lives up to the hype on here.
  7. Theres been many youtube tests in wind tunnels with people standing up just about in 100mph+ winds, cant see people being thrown about by 60mph winds unless you weigh 30kg
  8. Im not sure how location specific the warnings are meant to be, however it would have been a much more accurate warning to go with yellow on the west half of the country and amber on the east, possibly amber on the west coast of wales too.
  9. Saw this near my home in Bransford last year, never got to the bottom of what it was.
  10. Was waiting for that cold front to move through in Hereford before drawing conclusion, but certainly here in Hereford for some reason it wasnt bad at all, wouldnt even give it a yellow warning here.
  11. What would it feel like to be stood in it if its touch ground as in this case? Any increase in wind? Precipitation?
  12. Not particularly wooded there mainly fields.
  13. Thanks, i could see areas moving together and around each other in the main bit, but not particularly fast, could have been the distance though. I tried to drive to find it but gave up
  14. Whats that in laymens terms lol. A funnel cloud is not tornado related no?
  15. Worcester uk, yesterday evening around 9pm
  16. Can anyone identify whats going on here, almost looks tornadic lol
  17. Warning for the actual severity please. Also 45mph winds do not require a warning ?
  18. I know there are other considerations, but I thought generally speaking the storms were named when an amber warning at least is issued? Are we now naming storms that only carry a yellow warning?? The last one was yellow only also and not imo worthy of a storm that needed a name.
  19. Do you work for the Met Office or something lol? I like the Met Office but they have got things wrong probably as many times as anyone else. I think any decent forecaster would review all data presented in front of them, pretty narrow view to be met office, met office, met office all the time.
  20. In my humble opinion, referring back to the debate about the potency of this storm earlier in the thread, from being just a viewer of this website for some time, posters seems to fall into two sides here, those who like to over dramatise the situations/forecasts and those where nothing bothers them unless its a 150mph+ storm. With not much moderate grounded opinion in between. Personally I agree with this - "Call me old fashioned but years ago this would of just been a windy day. Now we call these storms as we lean towards more american type forecasts. In my opinion a storm is when gusts inland widely reach 60-70mph with exposed locations hitting 80-90mph"
