The met office have early wind warnings out for this

 

Issued at: 1229 on Wed 11 Dec 2013

 

Valid from: 0900 on Sat 14 Dec 2013

 

Valid to: 2359 on Sat 14 Dec 2013

 

South to southwest winds will increase across many northern parts of the UK on Saturday with gales becoming widespread across Scotland and Northern Ireland along with parts of northern England. There is the potential for severe gales to develop, particularly across northwest Scotland. Gusts of 60-70 mph are likely within the yellow area with a risk of gusts to 80 mph or more across exposed parts of northwest Scotland. Some heavy rain is also likely, particularly in the west. The public should be aware that there could be disruption to travel and other outdoor events. At this stage there remains uncertainty regarding the extent of the strongest winds and so the public are advised to look out for updates to this alert in the coming days.

 

Chief Forecaster's assessment

 

A vigorous depression is expected to run quickly northeastwards passing northwest Scotland on Saturday. As this happens, very strong south to southwest winds are likely to develop across much of the northern UK. At this stage there remains uncertainty in the extent of the strongest winds. It remains possible that more of northern England and parts of Wales could also be affected. The very strong winds may last into early Sunday in places before easing.

The Canary Islands are already seeing some of the effects of the Atlantic again this week and they are normally quite quiet at this time of year:

 

Code Red: Wild storms to batter Canaries
 
Spain's Canary Islands, famed for their gentle spring-like weather, are now entering their second week of wild storms. Meteorologists have warned Canary residents that this second instalment of wet, windy weather will be so severe that 100 litres of rain will fall on the archipelago’s westerly islands in just 12 hours.
 
The Canary Government has issued a code red warning for Tenerife, La Gomera, El Hierro and La Palma and an ‘orange alert’ for Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura and Lanzarote. All schools and educational facilities in the ‘red zone’ will be closed from 3pm on Tuesday. Maritime and air transport is likely to experience considerable delays caused by winds of up to 100km/hour.
 
Spain’s meteorological agency AEMET believes the storms will not cease until Friday.

So anyway any good winds speed for the storm?

 

Currently forecast to be somewhere around 80 to 90 mph in Northern Scotland (exposed areas), but I wouldn't call those 'good' for anyone/anything in the path.

Can I ask you a question? Is it possible to get a storm surge again from this Saturday's windstorm? The moon is out right now.

Sorry Lloyd, this is coming through from several sources:

 

Canary Island holidaymakers told to stay indoors
 
Holidaymakers in the Canary Islands are being told to stay in their hotels due to a severe weather warning.  Gale force winds and heavy rain are expected on the Spanish island until Friday. The Foreign Office said some airport and port services are disrupted, adding that tourists and residents were advised to remain indoors. Classic Collection Holidays said that they had advised clients to stay in their hotels but added that airports were still open and flights were arriving. A spokesman said: "The severe weather is arriving later than initially expected and at the moment there are high, strong winds and choppy seas.

Reading the article, they seem to state rainfall in l/sq. m. So 100l is equivalent to 100mm. A lot, especially in as mountainous a place as the Canaries.

Back to Saturday. Notable downgrade but still windy and indications that we could be entering a active period where could get a few storms. Sunday preserved now for Scotland only.
