Monster 111Mph storm set to smash into Britain!

Things are set to get very windy particularly in the West as the UK experiences an Autumn style storm thanks to the remnants of tropical storm Kyle.

The most powerful winds look set to hit the South West of England & the Western fringes of Wales. Because of this the UK Met Office has a warning in place which reads:

‘Strong winds are expected to cause some disruption to travel and power supplies on Thursday.’

What to expect

  • Some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport are likely
  • Probably some bus and train services affected, with some journeys taking longer
  • Delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges likely
  • Some short term loss of power and other services is possible
  • It’s likely that some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities affected by spray and/or large waves
  • Some damage to trees with debris on roads are possible given the time of year

‘A spell of strong southerly winds are expected to develop on Wednesday night across southwest England and move north across western parts of Wales, southwest Scotland and all of Northern Ireland during the early hours of Thursday. Although there is some uncertainty in the track of the low, gusts of 65 mph are possible inland, with 70 mph or more possible around coasts and hills. Whilst winds may temporarily ease during Thursday morning, a band of heavy rain is likely to move east during Thursday afternoon and evening accompanied by some locally squally winds.’
