The incoming Atlantic storm is an absolute monster, deemed “Strike Four” by Magic Seaweed. Forecasters are warning that this weekend may be the largest and perhaps most damaging storm yet heading for Western Europe.
Great Britain is once again under huge threat as the next massive storm of the winter strikes the North Atlantic. European news outlets are predicting 80 mph winds, high sea levels, large waves and heavy rain to flood Britain with extreme force, possibly hitting around February 7-9th. With so many recent floods and harsh storms tormenting the country this winter, concerns for coastal residents on the south west are on high.
Surf forecast website, Magic Seaweed, has already predicted the storm to bring a swell of 35 ft at 19 seconds, making this the most intense storm of the winter we’ve seen thus far. Though the swell will be massive in size, Magic Seaweed believes that it will not be the most ideal conditions for surfers.
The Guardian, a UK news outlet, posted today:
“The Environment Agency said the first warning affects the Salt Moor and North Moor while the second is in place on the A361 between east Lyng and Burrowbridge, including the Somerset Levels Basket and craft Centre Area.”
Warnings are being distributed to the public regarding flooding and cancellation of travel plans to the south coast of Great Britain. Keep checking back here on TheSurfChannel.com for more updates on the storm to come.
