Here is today’s ESC European windstorm overview, issued October 24th 2016 at 11:35 UTC.

There are currently two storm systems in the region.

Storm ELISABETH is located to the west of the Iberian peninsula. Its central pressure is 991hPa, peak gusts currently exceed 95km/h. The system is forecast to remain more or less stationary to the west / southwest of Portugal. ELISABETH's storm field is not predicted to affect any land masses within the next 48 hours, hence no warnings or watches have been issued.

A new, nameless storm is located in northeastern Canada. Peak gusts currently exceed 105km/h. As of now, the storm field of this low pressure system is not affecting any European land masses, but storm gusts of around 100km/h are possible in Iceland in about 30 hours and later on other islands in the North Sea and possibly the northern tip of the UK. Therefore, a storm watch has been issued for these regions regarding this new storm.

Below are the ESC overview as well as warnings/watches maps.

Yellow: Storm watch (>70km/h possible within 48h)
