As a weather enthusiast, might I warn members in Kent, East & West Sussex, Hampshire & the IoW, Surrey, London and Essex (particularly those near the south coast) that the first named storm of the year is only 2-3 hours away to your west, and intensifying rapidly. Met Office have weather warnings here: http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/warnings/#?tab=map&map=Warnings&zoom=5&lon=-3.50&lat=55.50&fcTime=1479513600, which should be heeded. Gusts potentially on the south coast of 80+ mph, 60-70 inland, and 50-60 north and west of London until at least 9 a.m. tomorrow (20th).

Heavy rain is also a concern.

From NetWeather member:

AROME model picking up on a few things:



convective structures (bowing segments mainly) along leading edge of dry intrusion in narrow band of very high LL shear and low CAPE environment. There are hints at narrow "high gust corridors" further inland as well, potentially affecting Hampshire, Surrey, etc. as well around 03-06Z.
This means that there is the potential for squalls with high rainfall and very strong wind gusts in the south east between 3 and 6 a.m.
