Here is today’s ESC European windstorm overview, issued October 30th 2016 at 11:00 UTC.
There is currently one storm system in the region.
Severe storm GISI has regained strength and is now located to the northwest of Iceland with a central pressure of 993hPa, 4hPa higher than in the previous ESC overview. The system’s peak gusts currently exceed 140km/h, but this is mainly over the open ocean between Iceland and Greenland. GISI is currently affecting Iceland with storm gusts that are forecast to intensify in the coming hours, hence a storm warning has been issued which overlays a severe storm watch on the map. Some northern islands of the North Sea may also be affected within the next 48 hours, but due to uncertainties and the time period a storm watch watch has been issued.
Below are the ESC Overview as well as warnings and watches:
Red: Storm warning (>70km/h likely within 24h)
Orange: Severe storm watch (>120km/h possible within 48h)
Yellow: Storm watch (>70km/h possible within 48h)
