Two storms named by the Met Office are expected to bring impacts from strong winds for much of the UK, with the potential for some snow later in the week across parts of Northern Ireland, northern England and southern Scotland.
Storm Dudley arrives in the UK, strong winds batter the coastline in Blackpool and blow sand at Tynemouth Beach. Will bring a wet and windy afternoon today, particularly in the north with inland gusts of 60-70mph
Yellow and amber warnings for wind have been issued for Storm Eunice, which is going to impact much of the UK on Friday. The most significant wind gusts are expected in the south and west of the UK, with an amber warning now in force here from the early hours of Friday morning. Exposed coastal areas could see wind gusts in excess of 95mph, while inland areas could still see gusts to around 80mph, bringing the potential for fallen trees, damage to buildings and travel disruption.
