    https://forum.netweather.tv/gallery/image/20570-storm-water-vapour/   18Z image out 'The dry areas (dark) are a sign of cyclogenesis as stratospheric (dry) air is protruding down.'

    I don't care how it's dressed up or which location of the UK you are in, but the people in the NW of Scotland (yes, people do live there and have livelihoods) probably should now be under a red warnin

    That's ok then. Let's not bother issuing a red warning

    A real serious situation developing for northern Scotland, at least they are somewhat used to it, if this system was to hit further south there would be major issues.

     

    Will be interesting to see what winds will be recorded.

    The Jan 2005 storm caused loss of life and serious problems here.  You can never get used to it.  Hope everyone stays safe for this one.

    As the discussion is now focussed solely on the exceptional wind events forecast over the next 48hrs+ I have renamed it to reflect that.

    Did the wrong thread get locked? Was only started approx. 20 mins ago?

     

    No, we're keeping this one running and have renamed it so it's specifically covering the coming few days.

    How many of our Scottish friends are in the amber warning area, out of interest?

    And I thought it was bad when they forcast force 11 in the dover straight some time last year, good luck to all over there in the coming days, hope it decides to down grade a bit. Can't believe it is upgrading instead of doing the normal downgrading the models do nearer the time.

    That's for INSHORE waters

    When you see the sea state for an area of coastal waters described as phenomenal, it's not likely to be an everyday storm...

    With the exceptionally strong jet-core aloft, some really incredible winds could reach the surface if a sting-jet would form.

     

    A red alert surely will be issued tomorrow if these charts stay in a similar vein.
