After the storms Ciara and Inès, it is Dennis who will surge on the North-West of Europe. It “will mainly concern the British Isles this weekend of 15-16 February”, specifies Météo France. This storm is coming from the Atlantic, and will develop “explosively”, according to forecasts.
“Strong winds and heavy rain over the UK”
Between Ireland and Great Britain, very strong winds, big waves and abundant precipitation are expected when Dennis arrives: “his very imposing size and the very strong associated pressure gradient will be enough to generate severe weather, “write French forecasters.
“Storm Dennis will bring strong winds and heavy rain to the UK this weekend,” writes the Met Office, the UK weather agency.
Strong gusts in France
In France, “it is especially Sunday that the gusts will be strong, possibly reaching 100 to 110 km / h near the coasts of Manche and 80 to 90 km / h in the interior”, writes Météo France, specifying that “these forecasts deserve to be refined by then. “
The multiplication of storms in this month of February is due to a particular meteorological context which persists over the North Atlantic and Europe, associating “rapid currents from west to south-west depressed, conveying rainy and windy disturbances in a remarkably sweet atmosphere. “
