Early fog and frost before the winds pick up this weekend. The Storm Ciara event runs from Saturday pm, through Sunday into Monday and Tuesday. Mostly about the winds but coastal flood risk too.

wow, thats some fair old speed. We had a very quick overnight flight on a BA747 from JFK to Heathrow a few years back. I reckon it would have been close to the record if we'd not had to hold for a while before we could land in London.

Amber warning for South Coast and Southeast. MO seems pretty confident that’s the worst affected area which goes in line with latest high-res models.

Met office update has 60mph gusts for me. I'm as far inland as you get. 50 mph is uncommon here

I'm very surprised that the amber warning isn't larger. The touted wind speeds here are the on par with 14th February 2014.

I think if the models are still showing a similar picture tomorrow morning we will see it expanded.

Jo's update from this morning:

Amber warning now issued. The Storm Ciara event runs from Saturday pm, through Sunday into Monday and Tuesday. Mostly about the winds but rain and coastal flood risk too.

I'd expect it to be expanded along the Essex/Suffolk coast to cover the winds just ahead of the cold front.

That Met Office amber warning makes absolutely no sense. Why only that area? The EC has widespread gusts of 70mph or so for pretty much the whole of Britain, this is NOT just a coastal event and I'm really concerned by the way they're downplaying this.

The UKV mean winds are very similar too. It's just puzzling why they've singled out a small area, it's so inconsistent with the model output.

I don't know what Marco Petagna is on about when he says the only difference is confidence. The text shows different wind gust speeds between the yellow and amber warnings, the latter obviously being higher.

The whole system is flawed, both the naming storms and issuing warnings for them.

Agreed. I find it incredible that the Met Office haven't felt the need to update the rest of the wind warning for Sunday. This is a significant weather event.

Where i am a yellow seems about right, 50-60 mph inland and 70 around coasts.Strangely the met are going for higher max gusts than the gfs, don't remember that happening before.

Most of the train companies in the South East and London area have started warning of speed restrictions and disruption on Sunday. You get the feeling they’ve been briefed by the MetO to expect higher winds over a wider area than just the amber warming currently suggests.

The system has always been flawed. Probably because they offer it as a public service and therefore receive no financial/profitable incentive to have these warnings absolutely correct. 

Or maybe I'm just being cynical..

Nope, the rail network is covered by the company I work for. We're going for higher winds than the Met. I've been on conference calls for most of the day to various parts of the network!

Everybody complaining about the met warning matrix but from what i've seen over recent years it's been fairly consistent.Amber warnings in built up areas usually get issued when they're expecting gusts of over about 65 - 70mph.Hardly any of the forecasts expect over 70 mph inland, it's mostly south and west coasts that get the 70-80 mph gusts.

But that's not what the model output is showing at all. This was last night's EC but things are still pretty much the same.

If the models were showing what you're describing then I'd completely agree. What's baffling me is how the Met Office are ignoring consistent model output except for a small area in the southeast!

Think there is a SE bias also because they are talking about strong wind gusts inland aswell and it covers a large population. 

I think there should be an Amber rain warning too, Cumbria in particular is looking very wet Saturday night and into Sunday. 

And there should be a wind warning for Tuesday, the models espoecially ECM seem to really want to tighten the isobars and the wind flow looks perfect for severe gales to occur east of the penninnes with the 'lee' affect creating such strong gusts.
