    TORRO SEVERE WEATHER FORECAST

    TORRO SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 2007/014

    A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH has been issued at 2145GMT on Saturday 8th December 2007

    Valid from/until: 2145 - 1800GMT on Saturday 8th/Sunday 9th December 2007, for the following regions of the United Kingdom & Eire:

    Parts of (see map)

    SW England

    Cent S England

    SE England

    Midlands

    Central and southern Wales

    Channel Islands

    Central/southern parts of Eire

    THREATS Convectively-enhanced wind gusts 60-80 knots, cloud-ground lighting, hail, isolated tornadoes.

    SYNOPSIS

    Intense, occluded, Atlantic depression will move ESE across Eire and central Britain late tonight and through tomorrow. Intense wind fields are expected on its south-western side, and for a short time ahead of it. A trough/occlusion is expected to eject eastwards from the approaching system later tonight, across much of the WATCH area, with severe convection possible. Behind this, further scattered convection is expected.

    Due to the tight pressure gradient, non-convective gusts exceeding 50 knots are expected. However, convection is likely to aid in downward momentum transfer, and will augment gusts somewhat. SW Eire/SW England and the Channel Islands seem most at risk, with 60-80 knots possible, and this risk is for a fairly long time. Elsewhere, a shorter risk period, associated with the trough later tonight/early tomorrow morning, is expected. Here, gusts may briefly reach 50-60 knots, especially close to the English Channel coast. There is also a small risk ohttp://www.torro.org.uk/torro/forecast/rss.phpf one or two tornadoes - the risk across the areas with the higher wind gusts seems quite low due to the intense shear; however, along the trough further east - for example, Bristol Channel, S Coast of England, and if convection can develop, inland southern England, may have a slightly enhanced tornado risk for a time later tonight and early tomorrow morning.
