So it seems we have the remnants of hurricane Katia bearing down on us on Monday the 12th September. I just wanted to share with you the Met Office alert diagram to show you people where the weather is going to be severe.

www.metoffice.gov.uk

I live in the Lincoln area and I'm surprised to see the yellow alert for us. Worst that can happen in the area I live is flooding so I hope it doesn't cause too much ground saturation. I can see small tree's etc being blown over so watch out, we don't want any of these 'widow makers' landing on people. It seems most of the country will have some degree of severe weather. I haven't seen an amber alert on the Met Office for years regarding the UK, could be something, could be nothing.

Anyway, stay safe.

I'm in Cheshire and we've been having some pretty strong winds for two days now. Got an Amber alert too for this area. Hopefully it will be nothing more than a few trees and fences coming down and that no one gets hurt.

Stay safe

Oh lovely, I just about fit into the amber alert zone, lol. Just my luck.


Anyway, stay safe to everyone else in the UK tomorrow. The wind's have been picking up a lot lately but tomorrow it should be a lot worse unfortunately. Let's just hope It isn't as bad as some are predicting it to be.

Nothing will happen, those alerts are a joke. I would ignore anything except a red alert and even then think twice about taking any notice of it.

Amber alert is when a child is missing in the USA.

In UK it means bad weather could be coming.

The wind has picked up a bit but im on south wales and dont think we're in the amber alert zone.
i think the most i will get is about 25 mph winds.
I hope it stays mild for you other brits but bring your guinea pigs inside just in case.

We've had strong winds for over a week or so now. The remnants of Irene and Katia. There's another tropical storm brewing over the carribean right now called Maria. In hindsight I suppose it's much better that the UK gets a diluted extratropical storm than the US getting a full on violent hurricane. Still, you're in an amber area so probobly best not to hang your washing out for a few days


Being in Lincolnshire where it's mostly flat, plains like terrain and we will get the very southern end of the storm front here. What happens a lot is we get our own weather due to the flat nature of our landscapes. We tend to get unpredictable weather as the high pressure warm fronts collide with the cold fronts from the north and create storms. The flat landscape is perfect for heating up and the ground doesn't drain water too good so we get a lot of surface evaporation. We are getting humid mid 20s here. A storm is coming no doubt.

Not sure about Cheshire, I imagine it's not going to be pretty. Tell your friends and family too let them be aware at least and hopefully we can enjoy a good thunderstorm or two in the safety of our homes / workplace.

Yep, The amber alert area is more southern than I first thought. I was told it was going to be the most northern part of Scotland to be affected.

My house faces North and the winds are coming in strong now from the North West. My dads out planting these stringy looking weak plants in the front garden. I just asked him how long he thinks they will last if we get 50 mph winds, thunderstorms and heavy rain over the next couple of days, he's too stubborn to stop working though lol.

Hope you are okay in Northern Ireland. That's a pretty bad spot too be it looks like. It's almost the entire of northern / southern Ireland going to be under a severe weather warning for this. You will get the brunt of it as well but at least you take one for the team so to speak and weaken the storm for us in England!

We have chickens, cats and fish... I think the chickens will have to go inside there own hutch. If they die or something at least it's a good meal (3 meals... 3 chickens).

Not bringing them inside they poo everywhere and stink. The cats are stupid but will most likely stay inside at the first drop of rain and the fish, well the fish will be okay even if it floods

Only North of Scotland should be on the path of the tropical storm Katia. Winds: up to 85 km/hours. I would say UK was quite lucky this time!

The Met Office alerts are a joke? Ignore them? You can ignore them but I like to stay prepared. I've experienced flooding in my area so I actually have to pay attention to the weather.

If you want your material goods, your house, your livestock/crops destroyed then by all means, go back living in your bubble ignoring all the Met Office warnings.

The trees are still heavy with leaves, that plus wind & heavy rain will result in many fallen branches ... be careful on the roads. But 85 kph ? Not worthy of a thread.

Look at the Met Office link I provided, it's a lot more southern than you think.

It's blowing a gale outside here in Workington. We always seem to get the worst of it.

I just hope the rain isn't too bad, we've only just had the bridge over the river replaced from the floods in 2009.
For those that didn't see it on the news, in November that year we had 3 months rainfall happen in just a few hours, which caused one of the lakes to burst its gates and sent a tsunami of water for miles down the river Derwent, taking out pretty much every bridge in its path. The main road bridge into my town, a massive sandstone bridge, was swept away and sadly, PC Bill Barker who was trying to stop traffic crossing it was standing on it and was also washed away and drowned.

I live only 2 minutes walk away from the bridge and crossed it nearly every day, it was unbelievable that such a big heavy bridge could succumb to some bad weather!

Well, I posted the warning about 5 days ago here:
www.abovetopsecret.com...

I was quite sure it will hit right in the middle, however I am glad I was wrong. Bit strange how Katia survived such a long distance, yesterday it was still classified as a category 1 hurricane! Today the hurricane was pulled out from my map..
