Severe weather warning

The Met Office has issued the following weather warning:


This is the first warning of disruption due to Severe Gales and Heavy Rain. The Met Office has issued a risk assessment for the occurrence of severe weather conditions of 60% for WALES, SOUTH WEST ENGLAND, CENTRAL SOUTHERN ENGLAND, and SOUTH EAST ENGLAND.

The Met Office is expecting the occurrence of severe weather conditions in central and southern parts of the UK between 12:00 on Sunday 11 January 2004 and 12:00 on Wednesday 14 January 2004. Heavy rain and storm force winds are forecast with the most intense depression expected Monday. Winds could gust to more than 70 mph, which is enough to cause structural damage and bring down trees, whilst there is a smaller risk of gusts to 90 or 100 mph bringing widespread disruption to transport and danger to life. At the same
time, heavy rain will add to that already fallen to bring a risk of local
flooding.

Will a large raincoat do? Maybe one of the BBS fatboys will lend you theirs, especially if they've recently lost weight
