Storm Katie was the 11th officially named storm of the winter and spring seasons of 2015/16, affecting primarily southern parts of England on Easter Monday (28 March 2016). The potential for disruptive winds was identified at a relatively long lead time, with communication to this effect being made by the Met Office 7 days before the storm arrived in the UK. This article looks at the forecasts and warnings in advance of the storm, examines the evolution of the system with a brief discussion on the application of conceptual models and then rounds up with the impacts from the associated wind, rain and snow.
