One of the models (GFS) shows a very nasty low (I think its ex-hurricane Katia) for Monday for Scotland. Now Monday is a long way off and it may well not happen but the potential is there, so well worth keeping an eye on the met office warnings page as we get closer.
I've just been looking at the Met office site - it looks as if the worst affected parts are likely to be north of a diagonal line from about Aberystwyth to the Humber. With the worst in NW England and SW Scotland.
And despite the BBC link I posted earlier - Monday/Tuesday seems to be the likeliest worst times that a fair assessment?
I would say that is pretty fair - the track of the storm seems a little further north and I think a little slower than first predicted so perhaps a little further north than the line youve drawn but the timing youve stated is pretty spot on.
If you have a trampoline make sure it is tethered to the ground or weight the legs down (flying trampolines are a bit of a weather cliche). Ditto with wheelie bins. For those in areas prone to power loss then it would be the old power cut kit. (we are so we have our camping stove, torches, lantern ,little radio in an accessible place just in case)
Also keep an eye on any forecasts in case the met office upgrade the warnings and know the frequency of your local radio station.
if you have to go out with no choice and the weather is proper bad then think about your route carefully - are there likely to be fallen trees for instance, will any bridges be closed, that sort of thing.
Dh is taking this very seriously (giving me very regular updates) and planning to clear the garden tomorrow of anything that could blow about. he's giving me 6h updates! I'm more concerned about my parents who are in Orkney and due to sail back to the mainland on Tuesday ....
