Record breaking storm in Atlantic as powerful as a hurricane

January 26, 2013 — Leave a comment

A powerful extra-tropical storm is hovering between Iceland and the UK for the next few days. The central pressure of this LOW has fallen to an astonishing 930mb, one of the deepest ever recorded in the Atlantic. Wind speeds of 90mph and 50 foot waves are being recorded. It has been named “Jolle”. It will not directly cross the UK but is forecast to send several fronts and “baby” storms our way: the potent fronts corssing Wales and delivering heavy rain and thunderstorms tonight are part of this new weather pattern associated with a strong jet stream. Warm, wild weather approaching: hang on to your hats!
