    I would give it another 30 mins or so to give them time to get sorted but it may be that Scotland and NI will take the brunt of the storm

    That's always been what's been indicated as soon as this storm was mentioned but that doesn't mean to say the winds wont be significant enough to cause disruption n the south, MetO worry me sometimes with all the chopping and changing of their warnings!  Most the models are still agree that the south will get gusts in the region of 60-70mph at least so why take the wind warnings off?

    Now confidence has increased they are now pinpointing the areas likely to experience the worst conditions. 

     

    They haven't removed the wind warning - Read the text in the rain warning, gales or severe gales.

    So lets only bother issuing wind warnings for Scotland because their getting 90mph gusts but dismiss the idea of warranting warnings further south despite the fact 60mph+ looks likely for many even inland, I do hope that's not their new philosophy on issuing wind warnings?..

    They will be issuing updated warnings atm though I'm surprised they take a while to update the warnings after removing the old ones, if it were me I'd wait until the update was ready to upload before deleting the previous warning, otherwise some may look at the Met Office site to check the warnings and think 'That's ok no warnings for wind looks like it won't be so bad now'

    Not very likely to be seen by potential lorry drivers trying to cross the Severn Bridge... etc ~ There needs to be a seperate warning.

    maybe some of you perhaps need to have a life away from your pc's, I do love to read the armchair critics, be it about weather forecasters or any other expert professionals. My I wonder how good some of you are assessed by your boss at work or your head teacher?

    BBC showing the orange triangle warning from the Met Office, I'm sure that the website is just having trouble updating.

    How long does it take usually to update warnings?

    As long as it takes for the chief met office guy to read this thread and find his crayons ha ha Edited by fluid dynamic

    Must be due updated warnings, metoffice app have removed any warning from the NW England for well over an hour now, anyone checking now could easily think that the weather will be less severe tomorrow/Tuesday.

    Amber rain warnings out for the south now

     

    Issued at: 1226 on Sun 22 Dec 2013

     

    Valid from: 0700 on Mon 23 Dec 2013

     

    Valid to: 0900 on Tue 24 Dec 2013

     

    A spell of heavy rainfall is expected to affect parts of southern England and South Wales during Monday. This will fall onto saturated ground and lead to a risk of some flooding. Gale to severe gale force winds will be an added hazard, with the potential for very strong gusts across coastal areas. The public should be prepared for the likelihood of some significant disruption due to the combined hazards of heavy rainfall and high winds. The rainfall should clear southeast England on Tuesday morning, with the winds moderating from the west.

     

    Chief Forecaster's assessment

     

    A deep area of low pressure will sweep an active frontal system across England and Wales on Monday. This will bring 20-40 mm rainfall quite widely, with over 60 mm likely across parts of the high ground of southern England and South Wales. Falling onto saturated ground, this will bring the risk of both surface water and river flooding. Meanwhile, south to southwesterly winds will increase with gusts 70-80 mph likely around exposed coasts, particularly along the English Channel. Further inland, gusts of 50-60 mph are likely through the amber area, with a lower risk of gusts reaching 70 mph - more especially across southeast England during the evening.

    I mentioned yesterday about rain, we've had a lot of emphasis on the winds but there is a serious concern on rainfall total. The NMM 6 and 18KM rainfall totals look very serious ..

    Meto still only using rain symbols for the south, even though wind advisories are added to the text, are there not going to be separate wind warnings?

     

    Not everybody reads the wall of text

    People post in these threads rather than the Model Discussion to avoid the condescending and degrading speeches.

     

    Looks like the amber warning is out now, I wonder if that covers just the rain, or the wind too?

    I suspect they'll put the wind symbols back up later. Anyway if the wind turns up tomorrow and no warnings I'll get the normal abuse from work colleagues. I get it either way no warnings or when the warnings are wrong.

    I did indeed David, and my comment would be the same as always, it is no use moaning on Net Waether about perceived issues with UK Met, send them an e mail.

    Some 98% of the UK population will simply read the area forecast and get their data from there. Those on whom we rely for taking care of our safety will already have the very latest update from Met. The web is at the bottom of their very long list of priorities. Don't believe me then ask Ian F what he thinks, or perhaps Jo. They will be able to explain the system currently in operation.

    Most people don't bother to read them to be honest. They find them unreliable mainly because when do they do they don't read the detail. My work colleagues do because they know I'm a weather nut. Otherwise it's daily mail or whatever for weather warnings. Try it when in you're in the pub.

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
