February's Storm Doris
14 March 2017
You may have been wondering what impact last month’s Storm Doris had on our rental properties. Although severe weather warnings were issued for the Midlands and elsewhere, we escaped relatively unscathed. One property lost a couple of roof tiles, and we had to replace fence panels in three other properties.
The BBC reported that some parts of the UK had winds of 94mph, disrupting travel and bringing snow and rain. Flights were cancelled and thousands of homes suffered power cuts.
The Met Office described the storm’s violent winds as a weather bomb. This is “an unofficial term for a low pressure system whose central pressure falls 24 millibars in 24 hours in a process known as explosive cyclogenesis. Rapid acceleration of air caused by the jet stream high up in the atmosphere can remove air from the column, reducing its weight so causing pressure to fall at sea level. This in turn sucks in air which converges from surrounding regions resulting in faster and faster rotation of the circulation, in the same way that ice skaters spin faster by drawing their arms in. The resulting winds peak over a period of a few hours and can be strong enough to bring down trees and cause structural damage.”
