TORNADO WATCH 2014/002

A TORRO TORNADO WATCH has been UPDATED at 15:30GMT on Friday February 14th 2014

Valid from/until: 15:10- 21:00GMT on Friday February 14th 2014 for the following regions

Parts of (see map)

England

Wales

THREATS

Tornadoes; wind gusts to 70mph; hail; isolated CG lightning

DISCUSSION

**Watch extended a little westwards to capture risk from convective cells west of the cold front.**

Another deep Atlantic low will move NNE across Eire this afternoon. Associated cold front will move eastwards this afternoon across England and Wales - it is currently in western areas. Dry intrusion aloft along with deep lifting should enhance ascent along the cold front, with convection (perhaps forced) already evident in SE Wales. Strong low-level shear ahead of the cold front may allow for one or two tornadoes to develop with any stronger convection. Strong wind gusts are also likely.

Forecaster: RPK.
