Fierce Winds Roar From U.K. to Germany Through Tuesday

On the heels of a storm that brought widespread strong winds from Ireland and the United Kingdom through northern France, Belgium, Netherlands and Germany, another will follow a similar path unleashing another round of locally damaging winds Monday night into Tuesday.

Widespread wind gusts over 65 km/h (40 mph) will occur for the entire region, including cities such as Dublin, London, Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam and Berlin. Isolated wind gusts over 80 km/h (50 mph) are possible in Dublin and Amsterdam the most likely to endure winds of this magnitude.

These strong winds will be capable of downing trees and causing extended power outages. Travel will also be impacted as flight and train delays are expected due to the magnitude of the winds over a large area.

While gusty winds will continue Tuesday night into Wednesday, the threat for any damaging gusts or power outages will come to an end.

While strong winds will be the primary threat with this storm system, a period of rain will advance from southern England into Netherlands, Belgium and Germany Monday night. On Tuesday this steady rain will fall over southern Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Poland.

Showers be scattered across Ireland and the United Kingdom on Tuesday with lingering showers across much of northern Europe on Wednesday.

Another storm will bring a period of rain to northern Europe on Friday, before more tranquil weather arrives for Easter weekend.
