Quiberon / Brittany – France /
Storm Atiyah. Storm Atiyah was the first named storm of the 2019-20 season and was named by Met Éireann on 6 December 2019.
Areas of low pressure developed across the North Atlantic over the weekend and moved to the north of the UK. A particularly strong zone of winds developed across western Ireland and pushed into Wales, southwest England and along the south coast of England through the evening of Sunday 8 December and into Monday 9 December.
This brought a gust of wind of 83 mph at The Needles on the Isle of Wight. Wind gusts of over 70 mph were also recorded around the coasts of Wales and southwest England with inland gusts of between 50-60 mph.
The strong winds were accompanied by heavy, squally showers with a mixture of rain, hail and some thunder.

Jutting out into the sea for 9 miles (14km) and just 72ft (22m) wide at its narrowest point, the Quiberon Peninsula is a tourist destination par excellence. With its rugged coastline, sweeping sandy beaches, fishing villages and rich cultural history, this beautiful area of Morbihan won’t disappoint.
On the western side, the 5 mile (8km)-long Côte Sauvage (wild coast) is the perfect place for getting back to nature via a bracing walk. On the way you’ll pass hidden caves, arches and coves – but swimming is strictly forbidden due to the rough sea. The area is rich in flora and fauna, with a mix of dunes and heathland. As well as spectacular views over the coast and Belle-Île, Brittany’s largest island, you’ll encounter the remains of a Roman fish farm and a Bronze Age fort plus plenty of swooping seabirds.
Quiberon’s beaches have something to interest all tastes. The windy, sandy expanses west of Penthièvre in the north are popular with horse-riders, sand-yachters and surfers whereas families favour the sheltered beaches around Saint-Pierre-Quiberon in the south. Wherever you are, you won’t be far from someone who can teach you a watersport or hire you some equipment.
