п»їOutline the causes, effects and answers of a recent storm event in the Uk Isles The truly great Storm of 1987 brought on a huge amount of damage and destruction across the Southern Counties with the UK. Evaluation of the thunderstorm suggests generally there had been nothingВ like it since 1703 and you would just expect a storm of that magnitude once every 200 years. The depression started over theВ Bay of Biscay, В south westerly windsВ carryingВ warm wet atmosphere from the North Atlantic metВ north easterly windsВ carryingВ cold airВ from the Pole. The depression thenВ deepened rapidlyВ due towards the unusuallyВ warm ocean surface conditions in the These types of of Biscay and aВ steep pressure gradientВ between the two air masses. Low atmospheric pressureВ in the centre of the depressive disorder led toВ very strong wind gusts. TheВ polar fly streamВ was also locatedВ further southВ than normal and this meant the depression created overВ northern France and the southern area of EnglandВ instead of above north Scotland like it would normally. On theВ 15th OctoberВ pressure in the middle of the depressive disorder fell fromВ 970mb (millibar) in middayВ to 953mb at midnight, reduced than theВ average air pressureВ in the UK ofВ 1013mb. Weather forecasters thought that wouldn't reach England, but by midnight it had altered course and moved towards the south shoreline. Most people attended bed not knowing that there is severe gusts of wind overnight. The storm hitВ Cornwall and DevonВ just afterВ midnightВ and then moved across to the MidlandsВ and reached theВ Humber Estuary atВ 5: 30am. TheВ south-eastВ experienced veryВ strong wind gusts, withВ GorlestonВ in Norfolk receiving gusts of up toВ 196km/hВ and inВ Shoreham-by-SeaВ there were speeds ofВ 136km/hВ forВ 20 a few minutes. There were speedy changes in heat as the warm front side passed over, for example in Farnborough, Hampshire the heat went from 8. 5 degrees Grad to 18. 6 levels C in 20 mins. AfterВ 6amВ the major depression began toВ weakenВ and had transferred away in the North Sea by 9am.
