    This low pressure should not be underestimated. From the core of low pressure progged for early Tuesday morning at a near record low, the low itself stretches all the way from the North African coast to the fridgid coast of Greenland. That's well over 2,000 miles!!Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

    The Low for later next week, may not be as deep, but it becomes slow moving and it hangs around for a long time

    That is bad too. Gale / Severe Gale going non-stop for many hours. Relentless

     

    One positive thing, as i struggle to find much positive about the days ahead. Neap Tides !!

     

    If these lows were coming with high spring tides... well it doesn't even bear thinking about

     

    There has been some big swells around already, but lows this deep, with the isobars closely packed, going to

    really whip up those seas. Oh yeah, the shipping forecast is going to make for interesting reading too

    Sorry, but there is no warning for wind - Metoffice have a specific warning for extreme wind and it is notable for it's absence.

    I'm driving to the south coast tomorrow to work and a rain warning isn't going to put me off - actually probably not even a wind one either lol

    well put it this way chaps, it's my business and unless my stock goes back into the blast freezers over the xmas period (and bare in mind the blast freezer depot closes tomorrow at midday) then I lose three grands worth of stock and my business goes under....Profit over safety?...get real!

     

    If I had my way it would be by law. You wouldn't be allowed out. If I was your manager I'd tell you not to go as well. Anyway take care.

    The met office warnings are really dangerous. They have removed the wind warnings (I see they still include a warning in the text)

    They have a wind of 79mph gusts in my area but you click on the wind warning icon in yellow and they only mention areas in the north.

    They completely over hyped for the St Jude storm and completely under hyping this one which in my opinion is just dangerous.

    No one knows whats coming because the news arn't all over it like a rash because the Met have been really slow with there warnings.

    People are aware there is a bad bit of rain and wind coming but not to the extent which will most likely happen.

    GFS should be out in any min now will it be a upgrade or a downgrade but i am betting on a upgrade.

     

    It's already coming out.

     

    It looks a little slower, but doesn't look like any downgrade or upgrade by very much if anything.

     

    Maybe a tad further south?

    It has been pasted numerous times but once more won't hurt..

    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.

    Well I wasn't planning on going out to do any sea-fishing ! A 50-60 mph inland occasional gust is not something i will hyperventilate on - It could interfere with my golf though

    Interesting 12z, the low for Xmas Eve now has a double centre which could bring the strongest winds a bit further south.

    What I thought when I posted this earlier "Posted 21 minutes ago

    "Is there a secondary low / disturbance  crossing the midlands / souther England in this sequence ??"

    Glad to see that Met Office has made right decision & will soon be updating the wind warnings to make them clearer for S'ern areas Mon/Tue.

      The risk of frost continues and it is chilly out of the sunshine but the fine, dry spell continues this week as the temperatures creep up, closer to average rather than below as they have been. Read the full update here

      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.
