"The Environment Agency has issued a severe flood warning for the whole of the Devon and Cornwall coast amid storm warnings for south and west Britain.

Large parts of England and Wales are braced for what experts warn may be the worst storm of the winter.

The Met Office has issued severe weather warnings for much of the UK, with winds of up to 80mph (130km/h).

Forecasters said storms on Monday and Tuesday could disrupt travel and bring down power lines and trees";

Somewhere else, as I am banned...
And as always, God's people in Essex are spared the worst of it. :D

Sounds like some fun weather conditions, I love a good storm - sitting inside watching the rain go sideways has a strange appeal to me.

Worst has been and gone. I can honestly say that it was soooo not what I expected. Sure we had some hail, and some wind ... but nothing completely out of the ordinary. Maybe we were just lucky, I definatly won't call it the worst we've had this winter. Plus it didn't set in until Tuesday afternoon.

It was really stormy where i live in Somerset, it was worst on day one, then got better over the next couple of days- i'm actually very surprised i didn't get any powercuts, the winds were very strong and it rained most of the time and we even had some strong hail.

That wasn't a storm, just average weather for March really, the wind always picks up and delivers some nice icey rain from the East at this time of year but some reason the media decided to make a big deal of it this time.
