Madre Mia! Deity help the UK! - And I am not an easy panicking person.
That image right there laves me speechless. 920 mbar over the UK, that's 690 mmHg which is 17 mmHg below my record. In the winter? Something's definitely very wrong here. I've never seen such a deep storm system over those parts of the world before. And though my life is pretty short, and I'm not in the UK I must concur with jrmcleod. Prepare for unforeseen consequences! That storm system is a possible killer. I can only hope it will abate and avoid the UK altogether. I have nothing more to add, completely speechless. Wow, England must have angered some deities real bad. Tied down your knickers and trampolines!

The dry reprieve will not last for much of the U.K. as another major storm approaches western Europe early next week.
The strong low pressure system is forecast to bring rain to southern England and western France, including Paris. Farther north, snow will accompany the storm across Scotland, including Edinburgh, and northern England.
Being an unusually strong storm, the system will rough up seas in the north Atlantic. Wave swells of over 40 feet are forecast off the coast of western Ireland early Tuesday morning.
The storm also has the potential to bring another round of high wind speeds that could be similar to the recent storm in some areas.
This storm will be slow to depart leading to unsettled weather and gusty winds through at least Wednesday, with the worst of the storm expected to occur Monday night into early Tuesday when a cold front pushes through the United Kingdom.
