Knock-on delays via a hub such as LGW won't allow the airline to use Extraordinary Circumstances. However there are currently weather and related ATC delays are on the EuroControl website at at 16:51 GMT:
EGKK/LC/LL (London Gatwick/City/Heathrow)
Arrivals regulated due to weather (strong winds).
Moderate delays.
So I wouldn't get too hopeful of Article 7 compensation. You should get a refund on the unused part of your ticket.
