Because the answer will always be "we don't know". We can never be sure of how storms will behave from this far out.

Or how airports deem when to ground in flights, in any weather risk the first call should be to contact your airline company, they're the only ones who can advise on flights.

At least the weather is looking interesting
(Hopefully not that interesting)
What sort of nonsense is this.
Its going to be a wet and windy day.
That's all.
You really don't need the Daily Express much these days when you could just look at some of the comments here.

Weather Element Criteria for Red – Severe Weather Warnings
1. Wind Mean Speeds in excess of 80 km/h
Gusts Speeds in excess of 130 km/h

So yes. Considering what the charts were showing yesterday he was right I think, they have since lowered windspeeds since last night though

By way of update, on the 12zs only Hirlam has this centred on Ireland - UKMO, GFS, ICON and Aperge all show it going into Scotland mostly. Still windy here.
