ECM bringing the low pressure further north with Southern England right at the forefront of strong winds. Midlands also right back in the mix of very strong winds. Heavy rain for much of the country.

Low pressure sweeps into NW for Halloween before sweeping through country by start of November, so we start a new month with the same unsettled pattern which October had if ECM is close.

Is it ment to be very windy in Northern England?

Yes, windy with strong gusts if we keep seeing corrections northwards on the models gusts could be in excess of 50mph even for northern england. But a unsettled and windy monday for all.

Yup ECM wants to mash us. Going to great watching this for the next few days.

How fast is the winds going to be in cornwall?

Far too early to say. Best waiting until the details firm up which will probably be Saturday unless we get full model agreement tomorrow.

Yeah You're right I hope we do not get 50+Mph winds.

With all the emphasis currently on the very unsettled and potentially stormy weather ahead, it may come as a surprise that the outlook could end up being anticyclonic. Once again, as with the GEFS 06z perturbations, almost ½ of the 12z perturbations become very anticyclonic and some of the others are ½ settled & ½ unsettled so we could see a much more settled spell developing by later next week onwards with an increasing risk of fog and a touch of frost and the PFJ shunted further north.Posted Image

Indeed potential is the key word here, it's not a nailed on severe event until a Red warning is enforced. So until that happens this event is not as bad as it can/could be.

 

Also the reason why only Amber warnings were given for some flooding like you mentioned is because river flooding happens every year, I don't think it would be reasonable to issue a Red warning every time unless lives were at risk, some rivers don't endanger people that's common sense in a rural area where there's not a lot of people, but winds usually are more dangerous with slates flying off roofs etc. And I don't want a Red warning 4 days out either, ideally I will wait until Saturday or even later if that happens.

 

 

Depends on the state of construction, something old or flimsy like a wood fence will break easily - doesn't take a rocket scientist to work that out, also smaller trees will get battered but older bigger trees with longer roots won't get uprooted unless the wind is 70-80mph but even then it depends. In the past we have had winds of 75-80mph but big old trees in a nearby field are still standing. If that was the case with 55mph winds Manchester would be treeless! lol

 

The RHS and NT did a survey after the '87 storm. They came to the conclusion that if a tree had grown from a little sapling, they were less likely to uproot. But trees which had been planted at quite a mature stage, i.e. for instant effect, came down like nine pins. They'd never developed their root systems properly to anchor them in place and were top heavy.

 

In our 'neck of the woods' Posted Image  we noticed that beeches were the worst - they have a very shallow root system.

Could you pop your location into your profile?

 

At the moment the north should escape the worst

 

Currently Manchester north we're looking at gusts speeds ranging from around 25mph to 36mph

 

Where as in Cornwall we're looking at 67mph gusts

 

This is what the met office currently think (time of day top right)

Well, tonight's Ecm 12z op run continues the unsettled and sometimes very windy outlook with rapidly changing airmasses but on balance it looks rather chilly next week compared to recent times, it's not looking very mild next week that's for sure. the azores high tries it's luck later next week to build a ridge across the southeast but is soon sent packing by the next tidal wave of low pressure bearing down on the uk from the northwest, it looks like a chilly westerly flow later in the run of arctic origins but seriously modified during it's long atlantic journey, very unsettled end to the ecm 12z tonight.

The projected stormy spell is still on track for the southern parts of the Uk. There is certainly a threat of some severe weather in terms of wind and rain . What I do feel interesting is that the stormy low flings aways very quickly due to a very strong jet stream, there will be lots of changes in the days ahead but at least intense rain and wind will be shortlived although very concerning for some folk! Ecm shows a same evolution....Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image here is the gfs predictions....

Latest from Gibby

 

All models show Low pressure becoming dominant again over the next few days as the first centre moves North North-east across the UK tomorrow and is followed by very deep Low pressure up to the North with a broad run of westerly winds with showers and longer spells of rain over the weekend. On Monday the risk of a severe weather event is still shown by the most powerful models and if the path of the storm takes a track over Northern Wales and England severe or storm force winds are possible for a time on Monday but there is still an element of doubt as to how strong the winds will be and where tonight.

 

GFS then takes us through the remainder of next week with changeable weather maintained but with less wind than early in the week as Low pressure ends up close to SW England with rain at times and relatively mild conditions in the

Southerly flow. Later in the output the Atlantic racks up strength again with gales and spells of rain and showers returning to all areas over week 2 as deep Low pressure moves East to the North of the UK.

 

UKMO tonight shows a brief lull following the Monday storm with sunshine and showers before a new Low pressure up to the NW brings renewed strong winds and heavy rain East across all areas around midweek. Temperatures wouldn't be far from average but it will feel cold in the wind and rain.

GEM shows a very changeable and windy period through next week with High pressure never far from the South especially later in the run. Nevertheless, it would be sufficiently far away to maintain windy weather for all with Westerly gales on northern and Western coasts and hills at times. rain would be commonplace too with the North and West seeing the most of this until all areas dry out a bit as pressure builds up from the SW at the end of the run.

NAVGEM keeps very unsettled weather next week with spells of rain and showers for all as Low pressure continues to move across or to the North of the UK. Temperatures would fluctuate between average and maybe a little above or below average at times.

 

ECM tonight shows a brief respite from the wind and rain as we move through midweek as a weak ridge crosses the UK from the West. Later in the week Low pressure intensifies again to the North bringing renewed rain and strong winds across from the West from later in the week. Temperatures will be close to average.

 

The GFS Ensembles continue to show mostly unsettled weather with rain at times in a strongly Atlantic based weather pattern. Temperatures are never expected to be cold or overly warm through the period with strong winds at times too.

 

The Jet Stream shows the flow troughed down to the SW of Britain but flattens out on a West to East axis across the Atlantic and the UK from the weekend and well into the end of next week.

 

In Summary the weather looks like staying very unsettled over the next few weeks. There will just be a few shorter and drier interludes between lengthy spells of rain and showers. The start of next week looks potentially stormy with the risk of some damaging winds over Southern Britain for a time. Temperatures are likely to be average for most of the time but with all the wind and rain it will feel chilly for much of the time too.

So sunday night into Monday looks very unsettled and windy to say the least, with potential for some winds in excess of 50-60mph. Here is what the GFS 12Z H.R looks like. Rainfall, Wind gusts and Pressure readings.
