Exclamation Storm Barra

Storm Barra named
Author: Press Office UKMO

13:23 (UTC) on Sun 5 Dec 2021

A deep area of low-pressure moving in from the Atlantic on Tuesday [7
December, 2021] has been named as Storm Barra by Met Éireann for the
level of impacts expected for the Republic of Ireland.

As the system moves in from west, the strongest winds and impacts are
expected to affect the Republic of Ireland. As the system begins to weaken, it
will bring strong winds and rain, with the rain turning to snow across
northern England and Scotland. In response the Met Office has issued a
series of yellow National Severe Weather Warnings for wind and snow. These
warnings will affect most of the UK.

Frank Saunders is a Chief Meteorologist at the Met Office. He said: “Strong
winds arriving across the west through Tuesday morning, will spread inland
and reach eastern areas through the afternoon and early evening. Gusts of
45-50 mph are expected widely, with 60-70 mph in exposed coastal
locations. The strongest winds will ease across inland areas into the
overnight period.”

Deputy Chief Meteorologist, Brent Walker said: “A band of rain will turn to
snow across northern England and Scotland through Tuesday. Two to five cm
of snow is expected to accumulate quite widely across the warning area, but
locally this could reach ten cm, particularly in parts of the Southern Uplands
and Highlands.”

He added: “Strong south-easterly winds will also lead to snow drifting in
places, particularly over the highest routes, adding to poor visibilities.”


Storm Barra - the second named storm of the season - is a name selected as
part of the Name Our Storms collaboration with Irish forecasters Met Éireann
and Dutch forecasters KNMI.

It's just Anwen back to attack from the other side! Be careful Niamh - our trampoline (which has not been used for years and I meant to dismantle in the summer) took off over a 5ft fence, through the neighbour's garden, over another fence into the street and narrowly missed three cars before I managed to wrestle it back to the garden with the help of a neighbour's nephew. And I have bad blood with those neighbours so it was also very awkward. The true danger of storms.
