Northern Europe is bracing for powerful storm system expected to reach land by the middle and end of the week. The system will begin to organize on Tuesday, December 3, near southern Greenland and move eastward toward Scotland, Scandinavia and northern mainland Europe.
Storm-force winds in excess of 100 km/h, rain and snow are expected from Wednesday to Friday.
This system will have a more northern track than the severe storm which struck southern UK on October 27th.
