Strong to severe winds in BeNeLux, north Germany and Denmark – August 9-10, 2018

The cyclone associated with the trough and frontal system passing across western and central Europe today will also produce unseasonally strong non-convective winds in BeneLux, northwest Germany and – in particular – in Denmark. Winds gusting up to ~130 km/h are possible.

The low will pass across BeNeLux today, crossing into the eastern North Sea and rapidly deepening to a central (MSL) pressure below 1000 mbar by late morning tomorrow. At the time it will likely produce strong winds gusting up to 120-130 km/h along the western coast of Denmark.
