2017.10.24 – ESC European Windstorm Update: Overview / Warnings / Watches – A (relatively) calm day

Today’s situation regarding windstorms in and around Europe is fairly relaxed. Though storm FLORENZ continues to stir up wind and quite a bit of waves in the northern Atlantic, its peak gusts of over 130km/h can be found to the north of Iceland and the storm is not expected to affect mainland Europe today.

A storm watch has been issued for the islands of the North Sea as well as the far north of the UK, as towards the end of the 48-hour forecast period, storm gusts may affect these areas. The same goes for the coasts and islands of the Baltic sea that have been put under a storm watch.
