 It's not often that one sees such unanimity amongst the forecasters.  Tomorrow, according to Yr.No (above), we face the prospect of a full storm in the period between 1800 and midnight, while....

....XCWeather predicts force 10 after 1800 gusting to force 12, with gusts of 81mph.  We've seen forecasts as bad before during this winter, but not this close to the event.

The culprit is the swirl of winds at the centre of this clip from Cameron Beccario's superb rendition of Earth's surface wind speeds, a nasty little depression which is heading straight for us.

The Met Office has a yellow warning out, with the words, "The public should be aware of the potential for disruption, particularly to transport and power supplies.The public should be aware of the potential for disruption from these strong winds."  One wonders what they would be saying if this lot was heading for central London.

  1. Jon, you can be sure if this was headed for London and the south east the media would be in a feeding frenzy of dire predictions
