Storm Ellen Update

⚠️STORM ELLEN… STRONGER THAN STORM OPHELIA?
⚠️STRONGEST AUGUST STORM SINCE HURRICANE CHARLEY?
⚠️RED WEATHER WARNINGS LIKELY TOMORROW
With models now coming into agreement on the development of Storm Ellen, and with winds forecast to possibly reach close to 200 km/h along the south coast it’s highly likely that Status Red Weather Warnings will be issued tomorrow night and into the early hours of Thursday morning.
With such powerful winds forecast, combined with highs tides, swollen rivers and heavy rain it seems likely that there could well be considerable damage across the south, southwest, midlands and west of the country. Given the timing of this storm it may well prove to be more costly economically than Hurricane Ophelia, and possibly the worst Summer Storm since Hurricane Charley in 1986.
Ellen bears all the hallmarks of a storm which has been influenced by climate Change and emerges as yet another ex-tropical storm/hurricane which has threatened to cause extensive damage across the country, following on from Hurricane Ophelia and Storm Lorenzo. In a warming world such storms are expected to become increasingly common during late summer and autumn in Western Europe.
More details to follow tomorrow morning. In the meantime if you have any questions then please message the page, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or WhatsApp me on 0879723300
