Forecasters at the Icelandic Meteorological Office (IMO) were able to forecast these storms with adequate lead time. The lows appeared in the ECMWF deterministic forecast 4-6 days in advance, followed by the high resolution Harmonie forecasts based on the ECMWF model.
All three storms were high impact both meteorologically and societally. Many of the main roads and airports were closed and general public services suspended in some cases. Structural damages were reported, houses were dislocated from foundations, ships in harbours damaged and debris caused a variety of damages in many places. In this talk the meteorological evolution of the storms is discussed, along with discussion on warnings issued and the societal impact of the storms.
