Posted by feww on February 12, 2014


Massive Storm Battering Ireland and UK with Torrential Rains and Hurricane-Force Winds

UK Met Office has issued a ‘Red Warning’ for hurricane force winds exceeding 160 km/hr, as a massive storm system barrels into Ireland and UK.

This is the first “red warning” issued by the UK Met this winter. It mean “danger to life” with widespread destruction/damage expected.

Wind gusts of up to 180 km/hr have battered the coast of southern Ireland, and gusts of 150 km/hr were recorded in South Wales.

In the counties of Devon and Cornwall, wind gusts of up to 155 km/hr have uprooted scores of trees and brought down power cables.

Meantime, southern England is bracing for more than a month of rain in the next few days.

Warnings Issued by UK Met Office at 10:27 on  12 Feb 2014

Valid from – 12 Feb 2014, 13:30
Valid to – 12 Feb 2014, 21:00

During this afternoon a swathe of exceptionally strong winds is expected to affect western parts of Wales and then some northwestern parts of England this evening, particularly in coastal areas. Winds are expected to gust 80 mph widely and possibly reach 100 mph in the most exposed locations in west and northwest Wales.

Winds of this strength can cause widespread structural damage, bringing down trees and also leading to loss of power supplies. In addition, large waves are likely to affect some coasts. The public should take action to alter their travel arrangements during this spell of storm force winds.

Chief Forecaster’s Assessment

A vigorous area of low pressure is expected to move northeastwards across Ireland and southern Scotland this afternoon and evening. Damaging winds are likely to develop along the southern flank of this area of low pressure, especially in coastal locations.

Coastal areas of west Wales and northwest England are likely to bear the brunt as southwesterly (later westerly) winds widely gust to 80 mph and possibly 100 mph in the most exposed locations. The core of strongest winds will then affect parts of the coast of north Wales and northwest England early evening with peak gusts of 85 mph.
