2017.09.21 – ESC European Windstorm Center Update: New windstorm coming from the west

Currently there is one storm within the area that the ESC covers. This nameless severe storm’s core is located between Iceland and Greenland, where there are currently wind gusts exceeding 130km/h over the open ocean. The central pressure of the storm was 987hPa at the latest 00UTC analysis.

However, a storm watch has been issued for Ireland and Iceland due to a different storm. A new storm is expected to form tomorrow before crossing the Atlantic and potentially reaching Iceland & Ireland towards the end of the 48-hour forecast period. According to current forecasts, the storm will not strike mainland Europe but rather be deflected towards the north by the high pressure area over central Europe.
