    About the Met Office Weather Warnings

    BBC Weather carries two types of weather warnings issued by the Met Office: Warnings and Alerts.

    Warnings will be issued when severe weather is expected within the next 24 hours.

    Alerts will be issued more than 24 hours ahead of severe weather.

    There are three categories of event Red, Amber and Yellow – the most severe is Red.

    A Warning and an Alert of the same colour have the same severity but are forecast to arrive at different times. Thus, the difference between a Red Warning and a Red Alert is the lead time of the event.

    When a warning is in force, full information can be found at Met Office Weather Warnings
    About Flood Warnings

    The flood warnings are issued by the Environment Agency, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency and Natural Resources Wales, and sent to the BBC Weather Centre. We then issue a compendium of warnings based on the latest information available. When severe flood warnings are issued they will also be highlighted on TV broadcasts.
    Find out more about Flood Warnings

    There are a number of ways you find out whether your area is at risk from flooding. The Environment Agency, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency and Natural Resources Wales update their warnings 24 hours a day via the Floodline number.

  2. ESTOFEX Storm Forecast

    Storm Forecast
    Valid: Sat 30 Aug 2014 06:00 to Sun 31 Aug 2014 06:00 UTC
    Issued: Sat 30 Aug 2014 02:46
    Forecaster: TUSCHY

    A level 1 was issued for S-Norway and the Kattegat mainly for excessive rain and an isolated tornado event.

    A level 1 was issued for E-CNTRL Spain mainly for an isolated large hail event.

    A level 1 was issued for NW Italy mainly for isolated large hail.

    SYNOPSIS

    Ex-hurricane’s (CRISTOBAL) WAA induces rapid mid-layer thickness increase west of Ireland (e.g. 500 hPa height increase in excess of 10 gpdm/12h). This causes a sharpening thermal gradient over Ireland and UK between the ridge and a stationary vortex over N-Scotland. Both, the northward building ridge and intensifying mid/upper jet winds along the SW fringe of that vortex cause the vortex’s slow SE-ward motion during the overnight hours … approaching Benelux from the NW during the end of the forecast. Advection of moist marine air ahead of that low result in marginal thunderstorm conditions for this forecast period.

    Positive tilted trough over NE Europe features cold mid-levels, but no distinct moisture source is available to feed any storms. Hence scarce thunderstorm probabilities exist.

    Numerous broad mid/upper waves, cool mid-levels and decreasing mid-layer thickness affects S-Europe including the Mediterranean. As 700 hPa temperatures remain aoa 6°C, the air mass remains capped for most parts … excluding mountainous regions.
