Large Low Pressure System In The Atlantic = More Rain And Floods

Large Low Pressure System In The Atlantic = More Rain

An area of low pressure has been moving up from the Atlantic over the past few days. At the moment it is located off the west coast of Ireland.

This weather front will move into the UK later today and could result in strong winds creating large coastal waves, coastal flooding and storm surges. The north-western coasts of Scotland are expected to be hit the worst.

However, according to the latest Met Office forecast the weather should improve over the week as the storm moves north-east past the UK.

This beautiful screen shot shows wind speeds at 1000 hPa with the values shown for the small green circle (Leeds). The large low pressure system is clearly seen in the Atlantic.
