Weather in Europe is already beginning to be affected by the extensive pressure below Ignatz, whose center is located above Scandinavia. This will bring not only a change in the flow, but also a relatively strong wind, which is already beginning to blow in Europe. But the worst is yet for Europe.
The coming hours will be extremely windy in Europe, thanks to the extensive pressure below, which is currently highlighting over the Scandinavian region and which German meteorologists have named Ignatz.
While over Scandinavia there will be a pressure below Ignatz, over Greece and a large area of the Mediterranean Sea lies the pressure level of Philine. It is between them that a pressure gradient will be highlighted in Europe, which will cause a stronger wind. He is already beginning to influence the weather in Western Europe.
The wind at night exceeded 100 km / h
The wind is already picking up speed in the British Isles and France, with gusts of wind moving at lower altitudes. from 50 to 70 km / h. In the British Isles, mountain areas are an exception. In Scotland, the wind has already exceeded speeds of up to 100 km / h.
We can say that currently the windiest is in the area of France and especially Brittany, where the wind has already exceeded gusts of 100 km / h during the last night, even in lower positions. In area Carteret measured wind speed 102 km / h and the strongest wind has been recorded in the area so far Beg Melen on the island of Groixwhere a gust of wind reached up to 119 km / h.
The wind in Europe is getting stronger, but a really strong wind will come tonight and night for tomorrow. Another pressure below will take care of this, which will deepen over the British Isles and advance over the English Channel, the Benelux along the coast of Europe towards the Baltic Sea. This one was named by meteorologists as Hendrik II and it is this that will further accentuate the pressure gradient and bring the aforementioned storm to Europe.
synoptic situation from tonight
The storm will do damage at night
The first problems are expected in France and the Benelux region during the coming night. Wind gusts should move in lower positions between 80 to 100 km / h and there are up to 5 meters of waves on the coast of Europe.
