Brace yourself! Essex could be hit by 80mph winds in worst storms since the 1987 hurricane

Brentwood Weekly News: Brace yourself! Essex could be hit by 80mph winds in worst storms since the 1987 hurricanes Brace yourself! Essex could be hit by 80mph winds in worst storms since the 1987 hurricanes

WEATHER experts fear Essex could be hit by hurricane-force winds as strong as those which tore down trees and damaged buildings in 1987.

The Met Office issued an amber weather warning yesterday, four days ahead of the potential storm, which is expected to hit during the rush hour on Monday morning.

Experts believe it could be the worst storm to hit the county in 26 years, with wind speeds reaching 80mph.

Councils, transport companies and the emergency services are already making preparations to deal with any problems caused by the weather.

Tom Defty, from the Essex Weather Centre, said: “Our forecasts expect it will manifest over the weekend. If it does, this will be the worst and strongest storm since the infamous hurricane of 1987.”

South Essex has faced severe flooding in recent months and Mr Defty is concerned this could cause trees to topple over far more easily if the high winds hit.

He added: “My concern for south Essex is, in the past two months, we have had a lot of heavy rainfall so the amount of water in the ground makes the trees very unstable and likely to fall in strong winds.

“A lot can change in the next few days, but if it does happen, people should be prepared for power cuts and train delays.

“We will continue to monitor the situation, but unfortunately we will not know for certain until Sunday.”

Normally, Atlantic storms of this type develop much further to the west of the UK and are waning in strength by the time they reach the UK and Ireland.

This storm is more unusual, developing much closer to the UK and potentially tracking across the country while still in its most powerful phase.

A strong jet stream and warm air close to the UK are both con- tributing to the development and strength of the storm.

Eddy Carroll, chief forecaster at the Met Office, said: “This storm doesn’t exist at the moment, but our forecast models predict it is likely to develop in the west Atlantic on Saturday.

“Then it’s likely to rapidly inten- sify just west of the UK late on Sunday before tracking across England and Wales early on Monday.

“There is still a chance this storm may take a more southerly track and miss the UK, but people should be aware there is a risk of severe weather and significant disruption.”

Michael Fish famously says "don't worry" ahead of 1987 hurricane

The latest from the Essex Weather Centre says: "A intense low pressure system is forecast to run North-Eastwards across Northern parts of England early on Monday bringing the potential for an exceptionally windy spell of weather for all districts of Essex.

At this early stage there is uncertainty about the timing, intensity and track of the low. However, the public should be prepared for the risk of falling trees as well as damage to buildings and other structures, bringing disruption to transport and power supplies.

Based on the very latest model data from the Met Office, the worst of the conditions are likely to arrive during the morning rush-hour on Monday with frequent wind gusts of 40-50 miles per hour. At the same time, persistent, heavy rain could cause some surface water flooding."

Seems like the Met Office are covering their posterior after 1987 ;-)

A more common sense/less dramatic outlook from Metcheck.com

"Currently, meandering out in the Atlantic like a lost soul is Tropical Storm Lorenzo. At present, the system is far from affecting the UK weather but over the weekend and that all changes as models now show a very real threat that Lorenzo may well interact with another area of low pressure and rattles across the UK next Monday bringing a very significant storm system to many areas.

What is worth remembering is that models are simply number crunchers. If you put in the right data then you get a realistic vision as to how the weather will unfold and the right data is all down to how Lorenzo interacts with the passing frontal wave in 84 hours from now.

If Lorenzo fails to hitch a lift then we can expect some windy weather across much of the country next week but certainly nothing spectacular. However, if, as models suggest Lorenzo catches the wave depression then 80-90mph winds along with very heavy rainfall would affect much of the UK on Monday and certainly be a storm system which would rival the Burns Day Storm of January 1990.

If you do have outdoor interests for next Monday or travel plans (or a fence) then follow Metcheck closely in the next few days as we will keep you up to date with the latest potential of this system."

Well if it does happen, at least it's half term so if it's rush hour Monday there will be less traffic on the roads.

I remember 15/16 October 1987 well. Never quite heard anything like it and the devastation the day after was truly shocking.

However, one thing was absent then, the global warming handwringers... watch them come out in droves with their doom mongering "end is nigh" diatribe. I'm far more bothered about having to listen to that quite frankly.

Not quite sure if the last comment was laced with Irony or not but when I showed it to a group of year 2 science undergraduates today they almost p*ssed themselves laughing! A pity, but there wasn't even one beard in the room then or afterwards!

Of course I do hope it was intentionally Ironic ... after all ... if not, that would mean we are laughing at you.

Ok so let's get one thing straight here. This is a WEATHER forecast. Weather happens regardless of climate change and if you are confused as to the difference remember this quick and easy maxim: Climate is what (on average) you expect. Weather on the other hand is what you get.

In either case neither climate nor weather have anything to do with politics, prejudice or education. They just happen!

Why not? Sounds better than being run by all these Marxists, like we are now. Rumour, gossip, like the the guy up the road scrounging benefits - is all a far better guide to what's going on in the world than any facts that tell me only 2% of the welfare bill goes to the unemployed (the vast majority of whom are unemployed through no fault of their own). Get real. This is how public opinion is shaped. I'm with Kim Gandy. We're all Kim Gandy now. She is clearly not stark raving mad, at all.

Exactly. Facts, evidence, the things on which we can best derive a truth, have nothing whatsoever to do with the real world. In the real world, gossip, and rumour, are what must shape the real truth. I'm going out to work and where are all my taxes going (OK, I know you're going to give our Marxist government facts that prove this all untrue)? Going to scroungers, single mothers, and counselling for gay Islamist terrorists. It's disgusting. It's bloody correctness gone mad is what it is.

So with this storm threatening to blow down some trees will we see a mass outpouring of grief from the tree hugging hippies across town for any blown down.

Some call it murder to cut down a tree so if one gets blown down is it murder by the big guy?

Still perhaps any that do get blown down could be used to create benches or a new art installation.

Still more then ready for it, torches, candles, lighter & matches, the portable generator in the shed is fuelled with spare fuel (always had one as back up in the event of a power cut!) food stored as I went shopping today.

yes there might be some damage but its not going to be the apocalypse there might be a few zombies roaming the streets but fear not for all they will be tree huggers in mourning!

Ok so let's get one thing straight here. This is a WEATHER forecast. Weather happens regardless of climate change and if you are confused as to the difference remember this quick and easy maxim: Climate is what (on average) you expect. Weather on the other hand is what you get.

In either case neither climate nor weather have anything to do with politics, prejudice or education. They just happen!
Since I've noticed that my comment about 'immigrant weather' has achieved ten 'likes', and is up to joint second most popular comment, I want to level with you, because you seem (so rarely for this website, whether the Gazette in north Essex, or the Echo in the south) of an intelligent, educated, disposition. I fear that of those ten 'likes', while I'm sure some found it funny, many actually think it's true, and there's people that really are that stupid, and mad. I thought by using rubbish like 'my taxes...going to...counselling for gay, Islamist, terrorists', what I was saying, and what I was doing, was obvious. Bloody hell, the user name should be a clue, you don't have to be Dusty Bin to see it translates as 'Mail reading p r i c k'.

I've tried arguing on forums such as this in the past, using evidence, and facts, but always found that a certain perceived 'wisdom' seems to dominate. Fair play to those like yourself that give reason a go, but to be honest, I can only extract the urine these days. I'd like to think it's an Echo/Gazette website phenomenon, because when I actually talk to people about things, people don't seem quite such barking mad, ignorant, morons.

Lovely - something nice in autumn to look forward to! Remember the 1987 catastrophe well - having to remove a large oak tree from the bottom of the cul de sac I lived in then before clambering into a car and trying to avoid debris and trees strewn all over the place. I was one of only 5 people to attend my place of work that day in an office that normally held 40 people. Such was the devastation. Still, one positive thing is that this will be a boost to the small businesses that require smaller insurance-claim type jobs to boost their trade for the year, e.g. roofing experts.

Political correctness ? There's nothing on earth quite so loathsome and plenty enough of it about to destroy our quality of life far more effectively than global warming ever will............. but a 97% scientific consensus has nothing to do with PC, it's just what you describe it as......... a 'scientific consensus'
What's the alternative ? a fairground tent and some tarot cards ?
Why not? Sounds better than being run by all these Marxists, like we are now. Rumour, gossip, like the the guy up the road scrounging benefits - is all a far better guide to what's going on in the world than any facts that tell me only 2% of the welfare bill goes to the unemployed (the vast majority of whom are unemployed through no fault of their own). Get real. This is how public opinion is shaped. I'm with Kim Gandy. We're all Kim Gandy now. She is clearly not stark raving mad, at all.
sorry, but i'm not getting how government lies about welfare and unemployment (which i totally agree with you) has anything to do with a computer model that predicts global warming ? the same kind of computer modelling that predicts a storm on monday that doesn't even exist yet....... if the storm happens i suppose the met office are just a load of bearded communists that 'got lucky' ?

Personally i find this kind of extreme weather adds a bit of excitement to the usual dreary predictions of an awful winter, dark evenings and all that kind of stuff, especially on a monday............ bring it on ! hurricane strength !
100mph winds would do a serious amount of damage, which would have a disastrous knock on effect on roads, rail, air and sea, ... I fail to see anything excellent about that ..
but you feel threatened by anything not 100% safe and legal...... it must be nice and cosy being you..... but a bit boring

However, one thing was absent then, the global warming handwringers... watch them come out in droves with their doom mongering "end is nigh" diatribe. I'm far more bothered about having to listen to that quite frankly.
Spot on Kim, it's bloody political correctness gone mad, is what it is. I don't care that there's a 97% scientific consensus saying man-made global warming is real, they're all beardy weirdy commies anyway in these stupid, pointless, universities, so what do they know? As I always say, you can prove anything with facts, so what does that actually prove?
Not quite sure if the last comment was laced with Irony or not but when I showed it to a group of year 2 science undergraduates today they almost p*ssed themselves laughing! A pity, but there wasn't even one beard in the room then or afterwards!

Of course I do hope it was intentionally Ironic ... after all ... if not, that would mean we are laughing at you.

Ok so let's get one thing straight here. This is a WEATHER forecast. Weather happens regardless of climate change and if you are confused as to the difference remember this quick and easy maxim: Climate is what (on average) you expect. Weather on the other hand is what you get.

In either case neither climate nor weather have anything to do with politics, prejudice or education. They just happen!
Just wait til I get started on the Marxist/Islamist/fem




inist/woolly minded beardy weirdy liberal conspiracy, you won't be laughing then!
Ha Ha Ha Ha ... oh my word - I just laughed so much I sprouted a Goatee!
You would, bloody Islamist/Marxist/gay


/feminist/woolly minded beardy weirdy liberal, teacher, indoctrinating our kids with filth. I hate you, always on strike, we need the army in our bloody schools, not you lot with all your evidence, and facts. It's why the country is going to the dogs. We're run by all you commies (oh don't start on all that how there's more old Etonians in government than women, or how the public school dominates all the major positions in the civil service, industry, and finance - these public schools are actually a breeding ground for Marxism, and gayness), and you need proper sorting out. No more **** footing around, like we get with commie Cameron.
Blimey you prove that care in the community is not working. Sit down take your meds you poor delusional mug!
Hi.

I do see what you mean. But come on, Islamists, conspiring with feminists, and gays, 'commie Cameron', or even the user name - you don't have to be a fan of that 80s Dusty Bin show - to see it translates as 'Mail reading p r i c k'. Please see my other, considered, response, to the same correspondent.

However, I'll ask you to keep this between the three of us. I've a lot of holiday to use up, so a lot of spare time over the next couple of weeks. Arguing with idiocy seems rather pointless on here (I've tried it, with facts, evidence - note, I still keep sneaking them in, like the overwhelming scientific consensus on global warming), and I prefer to amuse myself by making it look ridiculous.

Thank-you.

It meant what it said, in very clear English. You can go and look at responses I've made to others, where I've explained what I'm doing. Jesus, it worries me that's it's not bleeding obvious, saying it would be better to run by tarot card readers, than scientific evidence! I also kind of hoped that my stark raving bonkers point I made elsewhere about it not being 'British weather', but 'immigrant weather' (which now has 17 'likes' - I sincerely hope the majority were laughing - but I am concerned), all while using the name 'Mail Member 4 Colchester' (think about it), well, bloody hell!

I've tried rational argument with the perceived 'wisdom' that seems to dominate the Gazette/Echo website. It seems a total waste of time. I can't help people are more likely to question this perceived 'wisdom', if it's taken to an extreme, and made to look ridiculous. Perhaps not, but it's more fun.

No worries. The problem is, I think, there are a lot of nutters out there. What I've done is based on the sort of stuff you see on here all the time, I've just taken it to that next level of madness. I suppose I shouldn't laugh at my own jokes, but my personal favourite was about all my taxes going to 'counselling for gay, Islamist, terrorists'.

Not quite sure if the last comment was laced with Irony or not but when I showed it to a group of year 2 science undergraduates today they almost p*ssed themselves laughing! A pity, but there wasn't even one beard in the room then or afterwards!

Of course I do hope it was intentionally Ironic ... after all ... if not, that would mean we are laughing at you.

Ok so let's get one thing straight here. This is a WEATHER forecast. Weather happens regardless of climate change and if you are confused as to the difference remember this quick and easy maxim: Climate is what (on average) you expect. Weather on the other hand is what you get.

In either case neither climate nor weather have anything to do with politics, prejudice or education. They just happen!
Since I've noticed that my comment about 'immigrant weather' has achieved ten 'likes', and is up to joint second most popular comment, I want to level with you, because you seem (so rarely for this website, whether the Gazette in north Essex, or the Echo in the south) of an intelligent, educated, disposition. I fear that of those ten 'likes', while I'm sure some found it funny, many actually think it's true, and there's people that really are that stupid, and mad. I thought by using rubbish like 'my taxes...going to...counselling for gay, Islamist, terrorists', what I was saying, and what I was doing, was obvious. Bloody hell, the user name should be a clue, you don't have to be Dusty Bin to see it translates as 'Mail reading p r i c k'.

I've tried arguing on forums such as this in the past, using evidence, and facts, but always found that a certain perceived 'wisdom' seems to dominate. Fair play to those like yourself that give reason a go, but to be honest, I can only extract the urine these days. I'd like to think it's an Echo/Gazette website phenomenon, because when I actually talk to people about things, people don't seem quite such barking mad, ignorant, morons.

I remember 15/16 October 1987 well. Never quite heard anything like it and the devastation the day after was truly shocking.

However, one thing was absent then, the global warming handwringers... watch them come out in droves with their doom mongering "end is nigh" diatribe. I'm far more bothered about having to listen to that quite frankly.
Spot on Kim, it's bloody political correctness gone mad, is what it is. I don't care that there's a 97% scientific consensus saying man-made global warming is real, they're all beardy weirdy commies anyway in these stupid, pointless, universities, so what do they know? As I always say, you can prove anything with facts, so what does that actually prove?
Not quite sure if the last comment was laced with Irony or not but when I showed it to a group of year 2 science undergraduates today they almost p*ssed themselves laughing! A pity, but there wasn't even one beard in the room then or afterwards!

Of course I do hope it was intentionally Ironic ... after all ... if not, that would mean we are laughing at you.

Ok so let's get one thing straight here. This is a WEATHER forecast. Weather happens regardless of climate change and if you are confused as to the difference remember this quick and easy maxim: Climate is what (on average) you expect. Weather on the other hand is what you get.

In either case neither climate nor weather have anything to do with politics, prejudice or education. They just happen!
Since I've noticed that my comment about 'immigrant weather' has achieved ten 'likes', and is up to joint second most popular comment, I want to level with you, because you seem (so rarely for this website, whether the Gazette in north Essex, or the Echo in the south) of an intelligent, educated, disposition. I fear that of those ten 'likes', while I'm sure some found it funny, many actually think it's true, and there's people that really are that stupid, and mad. I thought by using rubbish like 'my taxes...going to...counselling for gay, Islamist, terrorists', what I was saying, and what I was doing, was obvious. Bloody hell, the user name should be a clue, you don't have to be Dusty Bin to see it translates as 'Mail reading p r i c k'.

I've tried arguing on forums such as this in the past, using evidence, and facts, but always found that a certain perceived 'wisdom' seems to dominate. Fair play to those like yourself that give reason a go, but to be honest, I can only extract the urine these days. I'd like to think it's an Echo/Gazette website phenomenon, because when I actually talk to people about things, people don't seem quite such barking mad, ignorant, morons.

Anyway, can you keep this between ourselves? Between you and me, I've got a lot of holiday to use up between now and the end of the year (being lucky enough to have an enjoyable job, I didn't take it, but now my managers are insisting that I do), so I still want to have a bit of fun on here. I'm at a bit of loose end, for another couple of weeks.

Shame when you go back to work

If only I could sprout a beard properly
Why don't you f u c k right off, you evil, leftie, scum? My account has been hijacked by the wife I'm now divorcing (one of these minorities, these women, they're like blacks), and it's political correctness gone mad. And the biggest traitors of them all? These beardy weirdy, sandal wearing, gay, Moslemic, Marxist, liberals. They hate us more than the lot with the Muslimic ray guns. You're the worst kind of racist , you're racist against your own kind.
