BBC Weather Europe: ‘Life-threatening monster cyclone’ brings 15-metre waves to continent
Jan. 13, 2020
BBC WEATHER has forecast stormy weather for western Europe as Severe Weather EU has warned the major swell could bring 15-metre waves to the coastlines.
BBC Weather’s Louise Lear warned a “cloud swirl” is moving across the Atlantic as Storm Brendan floods coastlines. Temperatures across the week are expected to remain mild with highs of 12C. The 100mph winds have blown objects into roads including a trampoline onto the motorway in Britain.
Ms Lear said: “A swirly cloud is moving in from the Atlantic bringing stormy weather across northern Europe at the moment.
“High pressure is still firmly in control across much of central Europe with some stormy weather east across the Mediterranean.
“You can see we’ve got snow across Scandinavia. Rain in Poland, Germany and eventually out of the UK into northern France.
“The east of the Mediterranean looks largely fine and quiet.
“It won’t be long before we see more spells of wetter weather drifting that way steadily east.
“Between the two, a good deal of fine dry weather but this weather front is going to continue to push its way into northern Spain.
“There will be some wet and windy weather and warnings remain in force.
“In northern France it stays cloudy. Largely mild but still some snow likely into northern Scandinavia.”
Storm Brendan has sent 100mph winds across the Irish Sea as its expected to intensify as it heads into western Europe.
Severe Weather EU added the violent windstorm will bring gusts of “120-150 km/h”.
Marko Korosec said: “There will be intense rain squalls with violent gusts along the front first.
“The cyclone is very low and the result will be major swell and significant wave heights up to around 15 metres.
“What has to be pointed is the wind maximum comes behind the main cold front, as likely a sting-jet feature with violent wind squalls develops in the rear side, being pushes towards Ireland on Monday afternoon from the west.
“Through the evening hours, the wind maximum curves northeast and grazes into western parts of Northern Ireland and gradually spreading into Scotland ovenight to Tuesday.
“Peak gusts are likely to reach 120-150 km/h on the most exposed places, much higher towards the open waters near the sting-jet.
“The Scottish Highlands are likely to experience the brutal force of the low-level jet around this deep cyclone, probably pushing into 200-230 km/h overnight to Tuesday.”
