Can't wait to see the ensembles! Should be some extreme options again. Don't just take the operationals track and depth as gospel - nothings ever completely set in stone with these kind of developments.

I'd say the wind fields ahead the front as it closes in on the eastern and southeastern coasts look almost as serious as those near to the low center.  GFS continues to model gusts in excess of 80mph in that general region, with 60-70mph well inland. Pretty serious stuff. 

us southerners are tough :)

on a serious note. at least the tress are quite bare now and that will hep with branches falling off. but i am sure theres going to be disruption to travel on the rail lines. any excuse they can find :rolleyes:

Some people seem to be looking forward to this a bit too much in my opinion. I can't personally see what is so wonderful about travel disruption, power cuts, damage to property and endangerment to life, even more so this near to Christmas.

Am sincerely hoping for (but not expecting), downgrades in intensity as we get nearer the time.

i'm working xmas eve until 03:00 am xmas morning and 7-7pm on the 26th and 27th i'm starting to get worried about traveling there and back i drive along alot of tree lined roads on the route.

ha! remember shifts like that so well. 4 on - 4 off .

i suppose the best thing is to try get to work, and if you cant get in. least youve tried :)

dont think its a case of "looking forward" its more a case of liking the extremes of weather. im pretty sure no one wishes bad things to happen, but they (like me) are wanting to see how extreme the weather can be without injury, loss or disruption to peoples lives Posted Image

Same here. Absolutely love mother natures power.. but I wouldn't wan't see any hurt or killed by it. 

When I first started taking a liking to storms we had a lot of rain throughout yr 2000 I believe. The most destruction I wanted, was for the football pitch to get washed away by the river. A little optimistic I was, but I do remember it eroding away slowly.

I take your point; I love weather too and without extremes, things would be very boring. However, wind storms do nothing for me, and I think it's impossible to get some kind of Utopia where such "exciting" weather conditions do not affect people. I can almost guarantee that some will be eating a cold Christmas dinner in a dark and chilly room as a result of Monday, and that's a depressing thought.

Anyone got a time for the worst winds ??

good question......taking into account the 4 bottles of speckled hen & rather dodgy tasting kebab I've recently consumed, then I'd guess around 2 to 3 hours time Posted Image

yes it is. and if i could change that, i would. and i wish no harm to anyone whatsoever; but its weather. and we have no control as to its ferocity or actions. so, no matter what the weather does, i, personally, am happy to see the waves crashing on the coast, the trees downed and the roads flooded. and so long as no one is injured or worse then i accept that the weather has no way of being controlled. personally, if things get to the stage where theres no gas/electric and people are stranded; i would do all i could to help. bbq, bonfire, whatever, there is always the community and survival spirit Posted Image

I won't be satisfied til I get hurt, sorry, just the beast within me. I certainly wish no harm to others though.

what if you get struck in the head by a piece of corrugated iron sheeting travelling at 80 mph , game over , I'm sorry you can't under estimate this sort of weather !!...and what about the people who care about you !, Edited by Mokidugway
