  1. Those Undulatus Asperatus do tend to look ominous, damb those clouds! :)

  5. Excellent photo Chris, I think to be British and not appreciate cloudscapes would be like living without part of your soul.

  6. Not my photo, unfortunately, but thanks for the comment, Colum, and I agree regarding cloudscapes, albeit our most common type is what I have at the moment - grey stratus. Anyway, here's a quote from a respected Netweather member (ex-Met Office employee albeit not a professional forecaster) on his thoughts (BTW, WAA stands for Warm Air Advection - horizontal movement with respect to the Earth's surface of warm air, usually northwards):

    Strong winds and heavy rain to Ireland and Scotland, eh. Well, that'll make a change.

  15. Latest estimates from the US hurricanes people suggest that the hurricane will undergo extratropical conversion tomorrow while it is several hundred miles off the Spanish coast, possibly degrading straight from a hurricane to an extratropical cyclone/European windstorm without spending time as a tropical storm in between. That being said, Ireland and possible western Wales/south-west Scotland are expected to experience hurricane-force winds (defined as frequent gusts or continuous winds of 74 mph or above), so it's going to be disruptive and possibly present a danger to those outside near trees or in exposed areas such as clifftops.
