Atlantic Storms Summer 2015

Recommended Posts

Mmmm didn't expect too see such an active system Monday into Tuesday.  Looks more like Winter weather than Summer weather. Plenty of time to downgrade it though.

Still high winds forecast for late Monday afternoon into Monday night.

 

High mean wind speeds for the SW of Scotland around 50mph even in those parts at this time of year that's rare.

Gusts of 50 to 60mph will pass over much of the UK as well along with heavy rain in some parts.

Big upgrade on the wind warning

Issued at: 
0828 on Mon 1 Jun 2015

Valid from: 
1400 on Mon 1 Jun 2015

Valid to: 
1800 on Tue 2 Jun 2015

An unseasonably windy spell is likely across many parts of the UK later on Monday, overnight and well into Tuesday, as active frontal systems sweep across the UK. An initial swathe of southerly gales accompanied by heavy rain will move east across many parts later on Monday, giving gusts of 40-50 mph widely but 60-70 mph across exposed Irish Sea and perhaps some English Channel coasts. Winds will become west or southwesterly on Tuesday, with further gusts to 40-50 mph more locally, before gradually easing later. Large waves will affect some coasts in the west and south at times.

Given the unseasonable nature of the winds, the public should be aware of the potential for disruption to transport and outdoor activities. Damage to some trees seems likely.

This is an update to the warning to bring forward the start time, cover the rest of England in the yellow area and also to increase gust speeds through the Irish Sea. A powerful jet stream stretching across the Atlantic into the UK will steer a number of active weather systems across the UK during Monday and Tuesday. A front will cross from the west on Monday and Monday night bringing 20-40 mm of rain to northern and western areas along with gales, severe on some coasts and hills. The windy weather will be maintained well into Tuesday by a vigorous depression crossing northern Scotland. Developments are complex so there is still some uncertainty in the detail, especially by Tuesday, and this warning will be kept under review.

Starting to get a bit wild here. I don't like it when the trees are in leaf, especially when it's damaging all the flowers and buds.

Quite agree. Such a shame to see all the lovely new growth on trees and other plants getting shredded.

Gets rid of the may blossom in one fell swoop - June 1st!!

It isn't just windy, it's going darkish here and not even 7 o'clock. The jetstream is in just the right place and speed to produce a sting jet.

Fairly quiet here with light rain. Nothing of note bar it being miserable and cold for June.

Weather gone wild here in the last hour. I live in the countryside surrounded by trees and the noise difference in summer when they're in full leaf is huge! Driving rain as well - awful conditions. Glad I'm sat on the sofa with a cuppa.

Power has been off here in Whaley for the past hour, some beefy gusts making their way through the valley as the back-edge of the low encroaches. Younger brother whose currently in the Lakes has had all his camping gear trashed and scattered, currently resting up in a B&B.

Certainly was a crazy ol' night here! 25.7mm of rain too, it seems a lot, but the manual gauge shows 25mm as well. The rain wasn't particularly heavy, but you could tell there was a lot of it.
