Severe Low Pressure Storm

Post by Lifeless » Thu Jan 24, 2013 3:39 pm

While this isn't really to do with winter weather.. I think its a good example of some of our winter time wind storms that we tend to get a lot at this time of year.

The low pressure to the North West of us which is meant to miss us mostly, but is certainly one hell of a storm.

This particular models shows the lowest pressure point being between 924 and 928 (bare in mind the lowest pressure recorded in the UK is 925.6mb)
It certainly looks like a monster, with winds to match
(The darkest red is Beaufort 12 winds...)

It does miss us by going up Northwards straight towards Iceland, however the winds still are quite strong as it heads up there, with speeds of at least 25mph (Beaufort 6) across almost the entire country. Should be an interesting one to watch, and a interesting end to a wintry spell
Note: Everything I say can sometimes be entirely wrong. Never ever take my word as gospel. Ever... EVER
