Amber warning issued as Storm Franklin is set to bring 80MPH winds and the risk of a tornado!

The Met Office has named #StormFranklin. The storm is forecast to bring strong winds and heavy rain to the UK on Sunday and Monday. The strongest winds will be in Northern Ireland where an Amber weather warning has been issued.

However there is a risk from a possible Squall line which could bring a sudden but short spell of severe winds as it crosses England today should it develop. Winds up to 80mph possible aswell as a risk of a tornado forming, This narrow area band of intense precipitation and strong winds will be followed quickly by wintry showers leading to temporary accumulations later in the day.

The forecast squall line is the thin narrow band of the dark red colours

All this comes just two days since the UK faced wind gusts maxing out at 122mph leading to fears that another barrage of strong winds has the potential to cause damage to already weakened trees, buildings etc.
