At present it looks like Tuesday's storm will affect a much wider area of Britain, and whilst I don't think wind speeds will be as high as on
Thursday, the potential for damage and injury is much greater. Friday's storm is, IMO, the more serious one at the moment but with model's still
uncertain as the the exact trajectory of Tuesday's storm, we can't say where Friday's one will produce the strongest winds - it could be anywhere
from Central Scotland down to the Midlands.
At present though the message is: be prepared for very strong winds on Tuesday and Friday, keep an eye on the latest MetO forecasts, batten down the
hatches (and the trampolines) and if at all possible avoid travel on those days.
After next weekend though it looks like things will calm down omewhat, especially for us in the south. And my money's on a green Christmas unless
you live on the Ben.
