    Hi Cookie,

    I'm not sure how long it will stay calm for you, but there does still seem to be some uncertainty to the exact track of any strong low/lows over the next week or so. For a while it seemed most of Scotland would get a battering on Sunday morning, now I'm not so sure. Will it or won't it? Only time will tell. At least the murk will be shifted, gratefulness and small mercies abound!

    Robbie.

    yup its been calm since late last week.

    Tuesday and Wednesday where fab with high pressure it was cold and crisp.

    Monday was rotten with low cloud and drizzle!

    yes the track of this LP seems to be changing daily!

    just A wait and see I guess

    Gales and Heavy Rain

    Issued on 08/11/2008 at 12:41

    Valid From: 08/11/2008 at 12:00 until 09/11/2008 at 12:00

    Regions affected:

    Scotland Northern Ireland Northern England Wales Midlands East Anglia Southern England

    Areas affected in detail:

    Whole of the UK

    Severity level:

    Level 4

    Weather type:

    Gales and Heavy Rain

    Alert risk period:

    08/11/08 12.00 until 09/11/08 12:00

    Alert details:

    Depression is currently deepening quickly in the left exit of a strong Atlantic jet streak to the NW of Ireland, around 976mb at 1200, and will continue NE then turn N to the west of Scotland deepening all the while to be around 961mb at 06z Sunday to the west of the Western Isles. As a result, strong winds are expected across the western half of N. Ireland this evening - with isolated gusts reaching 60-70 mph for a time. Later, these strong winds will transfer to the Western Isles and exposed west of Scotland, with again gusts in excess of 60mph for a time.

    Also, an active occluding cold front will move east across the UK this evening, to be across SW England, Wales, IoM and western Scotland at around 1800hrs, then clearing the east coast of the UK by midnight. Squally conditions are likely during the passage of the front, with the threat of intense rainfall leading to localised flooding, strong wind gusts reaching 50-60 mph, hail and isolated thunder. Public are advised to take extra care when travelling this evening, with risk of treacherous driving conditions for a time as the front moves through.

    Further heavy showers with hail and thunder are likely across N. Ireland, Wales, NW England and western Scotland overnight into Sunday morning, and as increasingly cold polar air arrives from the west, snow is likely to fall in any showers over high-ground of the north and west as far south as the Cumbrian Fells and Nern Pennines.

    Gales and Heavy Rain

    Issued on 08/11/2008 at 12:41

    Valid From: 08/11/2008 at 12:00 until 09/11/2008 at 12:00

    Regions affected:

    ScotlandNorthern IrelandNorthern EnglandWalesMidlandsEast AngliaSouthern England

    Areas affected in detail:

    Whole of the UK

    Severity level:

    Level 4

    Weather type:

    Gales and Heavy Rain

    Alert risk period:

    08/11/08 12.00 until 09/11/08 12:00

    Alert details:

    Depression is currently deepening quickly in the left exit of a strong Atlantic jet streak to the NW of Ireland, around 976mb at 1200, and will continue NE then turn N to the west of Scotland deepening all the while to be around 961mb at 06z Sunday to the west of the Western Isles. As a result, strong winds are expected across the western half of N. Ireland this evening - with isolated gusts reaching 60-70 mph for a time. Later, these strong winds will transfer to the Western Isles and exposed west of Scotland, with again gusts in excess of 60mph for a time.

    Also, an active occluding cold front will move east across the UK this evening, to be across SW England, Wales, IoM and western Scotland at around 1800hrs, then clearing the east coast of the UK by midnight. Squally conditions are likely during the passage of the front, with the threat of intense rainfall leading to localised flooding, strong wind gusts reaching 50-60 mph, hail and isolated thunder. Public are advised to take extra care when travelling this evening, with risk of treacherous driving conditions for a time as the front moves through.

    Further heavy showers with hail and thunder are likely across N. Ireland, Wales, NW England and western Scotland overnight into Sunday morning, and as increasingly cold polar air arrives from the west, snow is likely to fall in any showers over high-ground of the north and west as far south as the Cumbrian Fells and Nern Pennines.
