The Storms Of 1993

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

We have had plenty of stormy weather recently, particularly in December 2013, which the Met Office say was the worst month since 1993. Prior to that, both 1984 and 1990 were also much stormier. (The Met Office classify this from the number of stations experiencing above 60Kt gusts each day).

As can be seen, January 1993 was recorded almost twice as many counts as last December. It is also worth noting that only two out of the ten have taken place since 2000, whereas four took place in the 1990’s, and three in the 1970’s. (The measurements only start from 1969).

To get some perspective, let’s take a closer look at the Met Office’s Monthly Report for January 1993.
