    Can we then ignore the 62 mph gusts for here if met think its more north sadly for those badly hit already.  I been disgusted at the news more interested in france than what happened from the storm.  You would guaranteed they would been all over it if south had 100 mph + winds.

     

    I see XCW wind forecast just getting the 15th one in shot some serious winds hitting Ireland next wednesday.

     

    Mass unexpected murder and political fallout that could affect the world and the loss of life in a country close by, or a short period of violent winds that may have rattled a few cages and dis-lodged a few bricks that Insurance will work out. 

     

    Have a word with yourself.

    yeah whats the world coming to. The news more interested in mass shootings an attack on western principals and the likely hood that this will happen again over here. Then a wind storm in the far north of the country truely shoddey journalism.

    The thing that gets me more though is because of the live France thing they have dropped the half hourly forecasts. Tried 4 times now at five to and twenty five past the hour. I do feel for all those who have had their lives wrecked in France because of these two radicals though, really.... no need man. I'll send my mum round with a slipper, they will cry like babies then.

    Polar they spent good hour showing nothing but police standing there twiddling there thumps and just kept repeating stuff they could just reported the storm and easily could cut back if anything went down.  Agreed Ritchie V sad what gone on but there is other stuff too.

    I've read it all now. Our neighbours and friends in the middle of a serious national crisis, something that is not only a tragedy but could so easily happen here and you lot are moaning about the lack of coverage for a winter storm.

     

    You're an embarrassment to this forum. Grow up.

    I don't have a problem with that, surely they can break for 2 mins or so for the weather forecast.

    It's not like the news is the only place you can find out about the weather. Rolling news will always follow the developing and most interesting story because that's why it's there.

     

    If it's just shots of police standing around, switch off. This story is a huge deal, it strikes at the very fundamentals of freedom of speech, the threat of extremism and the worrying way in which the narrative behind this so-called war on terror is constantly shifting. Maybe some of you are too young to care, but it will affect all of our lives more than a stronger-than-usual Atlantic storm.

    Yes of course, I felt it needed to be said though. Especially as I came on here to see what the latest was because I realised TV wouldn't be covering it.

    Don't entity disagree but when not a lot happening other news could be focused like they used too then go back or cut in if things develop.

     

    Anyway back on topic and draw a line.

     

    We had 42 mph last night just been looking at Lightening Wizard they say middle band of strong  convective winds could be likely from 6pm.  Are there charts old or latest development.

    Regarding Matt Hugo tweet regarding ec32 update he says he doesn't trust it especially after week 2. All to play for. Certainly looking at the gfs run plenty snowfall Midlands northwards next week I would think with plenty of pm air in the mix. Just hope that storm potential downgrades a 935mb low wouldn't be good at all.

    Re next weeks potential: I did read somewhere that the the majority of EP members show it going north again. May have been Matt H or Ian F. Lots of uncertainty though.

    If it went North, it would be more intense. Given both GFS's handled it similarly, i would be prepared for at least a 960mb storm crossing through Northern Ireland and exiting in the Newcastle area with the strongest winds on the southern flank. Obviously a great deal of time to pass before then. Next GFS 12z will be interesting.

    We have a tread here to discuss next weeks potential storms - https://forum.netweather.tv/topic/82219-atlantic-storms-january-2015/   :)

     

    This one is for discussion on last nights storm and the approaching storm for tonight, which will bring further very windy weather and heavy rainfall and even snow later on. http://www.netweather.tv/index.cgi?action=weather-alert-status;sess=

     

    Latest wind speeds, very strong winds now affecting Ireland and Wales. - http://www.xcweather.co.uk/

    Cold front on the latest satellite image moving towards the UK with the unstable cold airmass behind it with wintry/snow showers. Expect the winds to really pick up later as the cold front gets closer, strongest gusts likely just ahead of and during the passage of it.

    I believe it was last winter at some point.

     

     

    edited to add, I was wrong, although only just.

     

    “The lowest authenticated air pressure in the British Isles is 925.6 hPa/mbar, recorded at 2145h on 26 January 1884 at Ochtertyre, near Crieff (Scotland)

     

    Last year on Christmas Eve, Stornoway experienced it's lowest since 1884, just below the 1886 recorded 937.6

    I think it was January 1993? down to around 910mb as a depression passed close to NW Scotland, not too sure on this one though! The lowest pressure over land could have been January 1884 where a pressure reading of 925.6mb was recorded at Crieff Perthshire.
