Met Office warns of high winds across much of England, Scotland and Wales
Gusts of up to mph could hit parts of the uk as storm Brendan sweeps in, prompting the Met Office to issue a weather warning.
The Republic of Ireland will be most affected by the storm, with Met Éireann putting out an orange wind warning for the entire country.
Its British counterpart has also issued a weather warning covering the next two days, warning of strong winds across much of the western half of the UK.
Storm Brendan is expected to plague Ireland until 9pm, bringing with it a significant risk of coastal flooding, while the warning of “a very windy period” is in force across the west of England, Scotland and Wales is in force from 10 am on Monday.
The east coast will not escape the impact of the storm, with winds of 40 – (mph possible.)
The windy weather will persist for England and Wales on Tuesday as the storm continues to move east.
The Met Office forecaster Simon Partridge said: “As it pushes though, pretty much every part of the UK will feel the influence.”
Everywhere in the UK will have rain on Monday at some point, he said, adding that the storm will move through pretty quickly.
The Met Office warning added that disruption to travel was “likely”.
Forecasters said coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities may be affected by spray or large waves. There may also be some short-term loss of power and other services.
