A very deep depression (936mb) to the south of Iceland is whipping up 60 mph+ westerly winds in the Mid-Atlantic. Fronts with rain attached to this LOW pressure will rapidly cross the country overnight tonight and should clear Reigate tomorrow morning leaving a bright showery day. The winds in Reigate will be blustery with maximum gusts reaching over 40 mph tonight and calming down to ~20 mph Sunday, but do spare a thought for ships in the Atlantic where waves could exceed 40 feet (13 metres on map) in height in sustained violent storm force winds (Force 11).
