    There she blows!

    Doesn't look to be as bad, according to metcheck for my area, but I'm very new to this and apologies for starting a thread that isn't necessary. Not sure of decorum ;-)

    Friday Could prove to be more powerful than todays storm as the centre is forecast to cross land, a few gust charts from the 18z for the 27th.

    It's looking rather stormy around Ireland and the central belt of the UK for Friday...

    Certainly 50kts in the SW approaches to SW Ireland so at the moment severe gales in southern Ireland and S to SW gales along the west coast of England and Wales and Scotland. How much this will impact further inland obviously depends on the track.

    All I wanted for Xmas was a storm of Biblical proportions. Instead I got some socks and a giant Toblerone.

    Have some dodgy curries fifty pints of whisky, cider. beer and lager and I can guarantee a local storm of biblical proportions.

    May do something daft and Friday and drive to Scarborough in the storm.

    Period of heavy rain Friday morning, although pushing through quite quickly. I'd say anything between 10-20mm for those areas currently experiencing flooding. Strong winds the main concern further north, with gusts of 50-60mph quite widely (more in exposed locations), with winds strongest across Northern England, NI and North Wales. I'd expect more travel disruption

    Could be looking at gusts around 70-80mph and higher in exposed areas.

    Friday is looking violent for my area. I expect Met Eireann to issuea red alert before the day is out

    Met Eirann warning level increased to Orange:

     

    "Becoming very windy or stormy again during the evening of St. Stephen's Day, continuing overnight and for much of Friday. 

    Southeast winds, becoming southwest during the evening, will increase to 55-75 km/h, with gusts of 90 to 120 km/h, and up to 130 km/hr in some coastal areas, leading to further disruption and possible damage."

    Friday is looking increasingly promising! 

    No it isn't, unless you like stormy weather like me.

    Further yellow warnings for strong winds issued this morning for Friday

     

    Issued at: 1101 on Wed 25 Dec 2013

     

    Valid from: 0005 on Fri 27 Dec 2013

     

    Valid to: 2100 on Fri 27 Dec 2013

     

    Widespread gales are expected to develop late during Thursday night or Friday night bringing gusts of over 50 or 60 mph inland and gusts to 70 or 80 mph to some coastal areas and high ground. The public should be aware of the potential for disruption, especially where the high winds are combined with heavy rainfall. Please watch for updates to this warning over the coming days, especially those who have travel plans.

     

    Chief Forecaster's assessment

     

    Another deep area of low pressure developing over the Atlantic Ocean will bring another spell of wet and windy weather across the UK as it tracks northeastwards past northwestern Britain later on Thursday and during Friday. Wind is expected to increase across the area during Thursday evening and night. Peak winds are thought most likely to occur during the early hours of Friday and Friday morning with the highest gusts probably being over Irish Sea coastal areas. Relative to recent storms that have affected the UK, Friday's depression is looking less intense and the extent of associated impacts are currently thought to be less severe. However, at this stage there remain some uncertainties concerning the track and depth of this storm and this warning will be re-assessed and updated on Boxing Day.

     

    All regions except those below are covered by this warning

     

    West Midlands

    East Midlands

    East of England

    London & South East England

     

    Yellow warning for heavy rain has also had an update

     

    Issued at: 1111 on Wed 25 Dec 2013

     

    Valid from: 0005 on Fri 27 Dec 2013

     

    Valid to: 2100 on Fri 27 Dec 2013

     

    Spells of rain affecting the UK late Thursday and Friday are expected to be heavy at times with 10 to 20 mm expected to fall quite widely. Locally in excess of 30 mm is likely over parts of Wales, Northern Ireland and southern England by mid-morning whilst more than 40 mm are expected over parts of Scotland and northern England. The public should be aware of the potential for disruption, especially where ground is already saturated and where high winds are combined with heavy rainfall. Please watch for updates to this warning over the coming days, especially those who have travel plans.

     

    Chief Forecaster's assessment

     

    Another deep area of low pressure developing over the Atlantic Ocean will bring another spell of wet and windy weather across the UK as it tracks northeastwards past northwestern Britain later on Thursday and during Friday. Relative to recent storms that have affected the UK, Friday's depression is looking less intense and the extent of associated impacts are currently thought to be less severe. However, at this stage there remain some uncertainties concerning the track and depth of this storm and this warning will be re-assessed and updated on Boxing Day. Over Scotland precipitation is likely to start off as snow in places with some brief accumulations above 200-300 m and remain as snow above 600 m or so in the Highlands. Meanwhile, below approximately 600 m snowmelt will increase the contribution to Scottish river catchments.

     

    All regions except those below are covered by this warning

     

    Orkney & Shetland

    Grampian

    East Midlands

    East of England
