With a combination of a weather bomb & sting jet overnight, I hope it doesn't cause to much damage IMBY    I'm sorry I just couldn't resist 

Just like what I done with the storm last week I've made up a map showing the top wind speeds according to the Met Office on their Weather Map to give a quick and easy view on the wind speeds,  

Sod the storm, it's the imminent Ice Age I'm concerned about!

    just a snippet on the st Jude storm ,it had potential ,caused trouble across some southern and london area .but one of those occasions that crops up in meteorology ,its predicted path about 12/18hrs before had the low crossing uk slightly further north ,it did not develope so quickly .indeed i went outside during the night and the low crossed fairly close to my area with lovely clear star lit skies ,but this low DID cause damage ,further s/east ,this low midweek this week will cause many a head ache for the Met office and expect horror headlines in the press in the run up ,and i also expect some surprises as we get low 850 mb temp after the low exits ,interesting times for us storm lovers , :drinks:

    As the crow flys it did cause massive problems, close to Eastern England (Denmark) 100mph + winds were recorded from ST Jude as it continued to deepen rapidly.So on a global scale the M.O were right to issue their warnings as it was nearly deadly in its impacts for our shores.

    But that gust of 113mph was the strongest on record in Stornoway so surely this warrants the term "incredible" even by their standards, and it was equally if not more powerful then the 1987 storm, but I guess you're right because it's not heavily populated up there there's less of an impact! 

     

     

    90+ would be comparable to 1987 and the Burn's Day storms and I really don't think we want to go there do we?... :help:

     

    There was and has and still a massive impact on going here. it should have been a red warning. what would constitute a red warning then?! just cause it was over night didnt less the impact.

    from the latest model predictions what kind of wind speeds should northern ireland be expecting for wednesday night?

    50 - 60mph expected, perhaps 70mph on the coasts, as it stands now of course. :)

    I will make do with 50-60, no downgrades please and a 30 mph upgrade would be fab but 99.9 % unlikely

     

    30mph upgrade? Are you sure that would be a good thing!

    For inland areas, Southern England this is definitely looking worse than St Jude Storm. I recall the really big gusts were very isolated and mostly affecting coastal areas, meanwhile what we are looking at is much more expansive, and much longer lasting - there's been a slight upgrade in wind speeds to my untrained eye. So that is 24 hours - of high wind gust for C/S England this would do some damage.

    yes you are very correct there ,timings, depth of low ,track ,whether its developing etc all very critical ,and of course we could have got the full force of it here .As i mentioned ,as the low passed over my area all seemed so weak and calm ,lovely twinkling stars ,but the beast had been born ,with europe as its target .interesting days ahead ,Fax charts will be interesting as we approach . :drinks:

    Just look at the rain warnings for the SE, I think flood could become an issue also, weather has not been as extreme as last year for sure but it may well have similar impacts anyway.

    St Jude = Officially the most overhyped storm in history, the storms in October 2000 and 2002 where both significantly stronger and longer lasting. A wind event that only lasts about 40 minutes can't even be warranted a Storm in my opinion, it was a freak squall nothing more!

    Most of the admiralty pier is still closed after that storm, with wind peaking (for a short time admittedly) in the 80's. A mate of mine has been out of work since, and will be till the turret section is opened. He runs the cafe there.

    Been windy here since Thursday night with no let up, gusting to 40-50mph at least in the last few days, 70mph yesterday morning. A further increase is likely overnight with the next system 60mph+ on the cards and higher still for Scotland.

    Plenty of rain to come! Potential for 50mm to fall on lower levels quite widely this week, higher locally and perhaps exceeding 100mm over high ground.

    i thought northern irreland was expecting 90mph   gusts?

     

    Perhaps 90mph in very exposed places and at altitude. Further there will be blizzard like conditions in hillier areas also. This storm has plenty of cold air wrapped in it and because of the depth of the storm the 850s level will be closer to the surface, so less chance of the air being modified.

     

    Still another 48 hours of model output before a firm handle can be put on it.

     

    Whatever the outcome, at least it won't be mild.

    The track would have to shift quite a bit north for that. On the current track, southwest Ireland, Wales and southwest England are in line for the strongest winds.

     

    Still time for changes.

    On a more serious note things are looking interesting to say the least regarding midweek, any upgrades and it could become pretty serious indeed. 12z's next...

    Thursdays storm could be proceeded by some snow in the north and Scotland, no mention of wind speeds for Thursday but Jay mentions it has the potential to cause disruption
