8 posts in this topic

Forecasters are predicting explosive intensification this weekend for an extra-tropical storm in the North Atlantic that is expected to eclipse the intensity of last October's superstorm Sandy.

Most fragments of Hurricanes do end up hitting the UK, but less and much more rain

How do they conclude that it will rival a category 4 hurricane when they state the winds will reach 98 mph and on the Saffir-Simpson scale, a hurricane with winds of 98 mph is only category 2 (95-110)?

It is a bit windy at the moment, but us Brits should be used to the wind. Britain is the windiest country in Europe.

I think they are talking about the pressure at its center will rival a category 4 hurricane not the wind speed. They also say it doesn't pose a threat to land.

The UK may be the windiest country in Europe, but it sits only eighth in the wind power league and generates less than 10 percent of the wind energy produced by world leader, Germany: http://edition.cnn.c...s2001/windiest/

The UK is the windiest country in Europe, so much so that we could power the whole country several times over using wind energy: http://www.uk-energy...ergy_facts.html

Scotland has been named as the windiest country in Europe: http://www.bbc.co.uk...otland-15283013

Britain is the windiest country in Europe yet lags behind some of its more progressive neighbours when it comes to tapping into the energy potential of this resource: http://www.edie.net/...nd-power/16190/

Wind is not something the UK is short of. In fact, we're the windiest country in Europe. We're the world's eighth largest producer of wind energy; it's our second largest source of renewable energy, with the capacity to power 3.3 million homes: http://www.guardian....lown-off-course

What is the windiest country in Europe? ... According to CNN Europe, it is the UK: http://wiki.answers....untry_in_Europe

Ireland is the second windiest country in Europe: http://www3.ul.ie/en...ide/energy.html
