    Meteorologists have gained a better understanding of how storms like the one that battered Britain in 1987 develop, making them easier to predict.

    University of Manchester scientists, working with colleagues in Reading, Leeds and the US, have described how these types of cyclones can strengthen to become violent windstorms.

    Some of this has been known for quite some time. I went to a meeting of R Met Soc at Leeds Uni at the start of this year or back end of last year when perhaps the leading meteorologist on this aspect explained about this. Name of Brian Goulding who you may have heard of.
