Storm Imogen due to hit the South

Post by sheddi » Sun Feb 07, 2016 11:40 am

Storm Imogen is on the way. For once it's not going to clobber Northern Ireland, northern England and Scotland - this time it's coming for southern England and south Wales.

Some ferry services have been cancelled or re-arranged and various other warnings are in place.

Ferry services have been cancelled because of severe weather warnings for the south and west of England as Storm Imogen approaches.

The Met Office has warned of gusts of up to 80mph in coastal areas. Highways England said there was an increased risk of lorries, caravans and motorbikes "being blown over".

The weather has already led to some ferry disruption. Some Friday evening services have been cancelled and other services will not run on Monday.

Highways England has urged drivers of lorries, vehicles towing caravans and motorcyclists to "take extra care" and delay their journeys if the "weather becomes severe". A spokesman said if the wind speed went above the threshold for the Severn crossings and QEII Bridge at Dartford they would have to introduce speed restrictions or shut them temporarily. "We are keeping a close eye on the situation. There is a greater likelihood that there may be restrictions on the Severn crossing."

After Gertrude & Henry battering us in a matter of days, I'm glad it's not going to be bad here, sorry guys :rofl:
Stay safe!

To be honest, where I am (away from the coast, in a valley but not near a watercourse) this is the biggest risk of disruption:
