While the ‘Great Storm’ of 15 and 16 October 1987 is still one of the most talked about weather events in living memory, it was also a wake-up call for the Met Office and other organisations. Read about how things have changed since then and how it would be forecast and communicated now if it happened again.
Here you are able to personalise the Met Office website to work specifically
for your needs. Site-wide settings are available for units of measurement and you can
set boundaries, place names and map detail in the
Map preferences section.
