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.

I don't think it's overdoing it. ECMWF is similar if not stronger.

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.

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...

18z GFS pushes dangerous gradient slightly further south, placing more built up areas of Scotland at risk

18Z GFS has the low slightly further south and a little more intense again at 30 hours.

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.
