The UK will be bombarded by brutal winds as Storm Hannah moves in from the west across the country. The Met Office has issued a yellow wind warning for England tomorrow as the storm is forecast to strike Friday evening, continuing across the country on Saturday. Met Office forecaster Alex Deakin warns the storm could bring travel chaos as British coasts are expected to be battered by wind speeds of up to 80mph, according to the weather bureau’s latest maps.

He said: “Saturday looking pretty bleak in some spots with strong winds and feeling cold

“Many places will be seeing outbreaks of rain all thanks to storm Hannah.

“Some of the strongest winds on Friday night across the Republic of Ireland.

“But as that low heads its way across the UK noticed the tightly packed isobars on its southern flank, that is where the strongest winds will be.

“At first on Saturday across Western areas, these pink colours showing where we could see gusts of wind at 70mph around the coasts.

“Inland the gusts are more likely to be 45 to 55mph.

“Those winds are still strong enough to cause a few issues and spreading more widely across England and Wales during Saturday.”

Mr Deakin also detailed the weather warnings issued by the Met Office and how much disruption Storm Hannah could cause.

He said: “We do have a yellow weather warning in force for those winds, gusts of 45-55mph inland and around coasts maybe up to 70mph.

“Travel disruption possible, ferry services and high sided vehicles [articularly caravans with the trees and branches could get brought down.

“And there will be some large waves as well so maybe think about tying down your garden furniture.”

The weather map, behind Mr Deakin, shows winds will reach speeds of 70-80mph as Storm Hannah bears down on Devon and Wales before battering the rest of the UK.
