Looks like they get most of the wind but due to the latest path UK will see a plunge in temperature with possible snow & ice giving problems for many areas.

String of storm systems equivalent to a Category Four Hurricane to Strike U.K.
(TheWeatherSpace.com) - A storm system last week produced very damaging winds across the area and if you can believe it or not, a string of storms stronger than the last one will smack the area this next week.

The storm pattern is very dangerous this next week across the United Kingdom as storm systems approach the area from the west. These storm systems have central surface low pressure readings that of major hurricanes, including one by the end of the week being equivalent to a category four hurricane.
This is a very dangerous situation for the United Kingdom. A central pressure below 945mb is not common in this area and this will be a hazard to life, potentially end lives of the unaware.

The first storm system strikes on Tuesday, the next shortly behind that by 24 hours. This is a double-barrel storm setup for the first two, which means both central surface low pressure systems will be low, and working with each other.

The most powerful one may very well end up being one for the history books with a a central surface pressure reading of 942mb, a category four hurricane equivalent. This system will impact the area later Thursday and into Friday.

Really? they gave it a name lol. Well he was either very quiet or he missed the UK altogether as last night we had some rain (nothing unusual there then!) and a bit of wind but nothing to write home about! To the north of where I am (which is the most of the UK lol) they had some snow in places. The first storm of the week seemed the worst one.

Germany’s emergency services braced themselves Friday morning as the powerful winter storm “Joachim” struck the country from the west. There have already been massive power cuts across France. The storm raged across France on overnight, with the centre of the low pressure system reaching Paris at 3 am. Railway systems broke down in the Loire region. The storm also caused an oil spill from a stranded freighter on the coast of Brittany. The storm, dubbed “Joachim,” is expected to cut a swathe through Germany from Düsseldorf to Hannover to Berlin, but the strongest winds are expected to strike regions south of the centre of the storm. The Meteomedia weather service has already put out its highest alert for large areas of the states of Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria. Meanwhile the Karlsruhe institute for meteorology said “Joachim” would bring heavy rainfall. The institute added that there would be winds of up to 200 kilometres an hour in the Alpine summits and snowfall could be expected in mountainous regions. According to the weathermen, the storm also heralds the end of the relatively mild temperatures that have been reigning in Germany this winter. Snow is expected in the lower regions of Germany during the weekend. http://hisz.rsoe.hu/alertmap/site/?page ... -33438-DEU

Yes yet again we have had another REALLY bad storm, it looks like this one has affected the entire UK, worse I think in the west, but the entire country has taken a battering! I had to go out this morning and I had a few scary moments on the main roads I can tell you! Couldn't see further than my windscreen at one point, and there was flooding everywhere. Even saw a tree come down :shock:

Wasn't much of a warning of this one either, well at least I didn't hear of any on the national and local news, although the met office website might've put one up.
