Wind Continues on Monday in UK; New Wind Threat Arrives on Tuesday

A deep area of low pressure located to the north of the United Kingdom on Monday will lead to another windy day across the British Isles. This will be closely followed by another storm on Tuesday, bringing spells of rain and strong winds gusts.

As this storm system advances to the east, it will then bring rain and wind to much of northern Europe into Wednesday.

The area of low pressure located to the north of the United Kingdom on Monday, strengthened in part by the remains Hurricane Kate, will lead to another day of strong wind across northern Scotland. Wind gusts of 50-120 kph (50-75 mph) are expected to occur along the northern coast and into the Highlands.

Across the remainder of the United Kingdom and Ireland, including in Dublin, Manchester and London, wind gusts will be lower, averaging 55-70 kph (35-45 mph). While not enough to bring significant issues, wind gusts could lead to minor travel delays at airports as well as cause impacts to outdoor activities.

While the low pressure system responsible for bringing wind across the United Kingdom on Monday will pull away from the region on Tuesday, another fast-moving disturbance will bring a renewed threat for strong winds on Tuesday.

While on Monday, the strongest winds will occur across northern Scotland, the core of strongest wind on Tuesday is expected to occur further to the south across Ireland, Wales and England. To accompany the wind, spells of rain will spread across the region, falling the most widespread in the afternoon.

On Tuesday, wind gusts of 65-80 kph (40-50 mph) are expected to be widespread with some areas seeing even higher winds. Coastal areas along southern Ireland and into Wales and the southwest of England could see gale-force wind gusts leading to dangerous seas, isolated power outage and travel delays.

As this fast-moving area of low pressure moves to the east on Wednesday, so will be associated wind threat.

On Wednesday, Germany, western Poland, the Czech Republic and northern Austria will have to contend with disruptive and potentially damaging wind gusts. This will at least cause travel delays through the air and on the land, as well as possibly down trees and power lines causing isolated loss of electricity.
