HERE IT COMES: Huge Atlantic storm heading STRAIGHT for Britain will hit in just 10 hours
THIS TERRIFYING image shows how a catastrophic storm hurtling across the Atlantic will smash into Britain in just HOURS.
The UK faces the WORST hurricane-force winds and torrential rain this winter and possibly for DECADES.
And forecasters warned there will be NO let up in the extreme stormy weather until at least the end of the month.
The entire west coast is braced for colossal 75 foot-plus waves to crash inland this weekend triggering unchecked flooding and widespread destruction.
A deep low Atlantic pressure system miles of the UK coast will whip up 150mph winds and violent sea surges as it barrels into the country.
At its centre the intense storm will see pressure drop to just 944mb – seven millibars LOWER than the Great Storm of 1987.
Experts said the worst of the weather is due to set in tonight before a relentless onslaught of wind and rain over the weekend.
They warned communities to prepare for trees to be torn from the ground, roofs ripped from buildings and the flooding crisis to dramatically deteriorate.
Meteorological projections show winds of 12 on the Beaufort scale – Hurricane force – hitting the west coast on tonight and into tomorrow.
Forecasters have warned exceptional low pressure driving the storm threatens to whip up gales which could exceed 100mph – way off the Beaufort scale.
It is also pulling a massive “sea swell” towards the UK which when hurled against the coast will send waves of more than 75-feet crashing inshore.
Another image shows the frenzied “Catherine wheel” of low pressure sweeping towards the UK, closely followed by another at the beginning of next week.
Experts said storms which battered the country over Christmas and saw wind speeds top 142mph in Scotland pale into insignificance next to the approaching monster.
