Here is today’s ESC European windstorm overview, issued October 27th 2016 at 11:30 UTC.

There is currently one storm system in the region.

Severe storm FLORENTINE is located near Iceland. The system's peak gusts currently exceed 135km/h, however especially in exposed locations the gusts may be a lot stronger. FLORENTINE is currently affecting Iceland, the North Sea, Ireland, the UK and Norway; storm warnings have been issued for the regions affected. Further, the storm field will move across Scandinavia and into the Baltic sea within the next 24 to 48 hours, possibly bringing storm gusts to the coasts of the Baltic as early as in 12 hours - due to uncertainties in the prediction and the time period, a storm watch rather than a warning has been issued for the coats of the Baltic sea and southern Sweden. Below are some of today's peak gusts of severe storm FLORENTINE:
- 161km/h - Cairgorn Mountains, UK
- 157km/h - Juvvasshoe, Norway
- 143km/h - Cairnwell, UK
- 140km/h - Myken, Norway
- 137km/h - Krakenes, Norway
- 133km/h - Svinoy, Norway
- 130km/h - Aonach Mor, UK

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

Red: Storm warning (>75km/h likely within 24h)

Yellow: Storm watch (>75km/h possible within 48h)
