BBC weatherwoman Carol Kirwood warned that Britons face “disruption and damage to property” as two powerful storms look to reak havoc this coming week. The Met Office have an amber warning for wind to come into force for parts of the United Kingdom. Storm Dudley is expected to reach the UK on Wednesday, sparking a first wave of strong winds, followed shortly after by Storm Eunice on Friday.

Ms Kirkwood told BBC Breakfast: “What we have today is a band of rain moving from the west to the east.

“It’s already cleared Northern Ireland it will linger longest in the far southeast of England, clearing northeast Scotland through the day, and then behind it, we’re looking at sunshine and showers some of which will be wintry on the hills and it’s going to be a breezy day with temperatures ranging from three or four in the north to 10 or 11 as become further south.

“Now as we head on through the evening and overnight that continues to push off into the North Sea and clear and then a new weather front comes in from the Atlantic bringing in some more rain and also some hill snow across Scotland.

“It’s going to be cold in the north cold, cold enough for a touch of frost, but very mild in the south, which is the hint of things to come tomorrow.”

She continued: “So tomorrow we start off with that rain in hills snow in Scotland, that moves north-eastwards and then another front comes in bringing in some rain primarily in the northern half of the country.

“It will still be chilly in the north, but not the temperatures around Norwich and London 16, 17 degrees way above average for the time of year but the wind will be strengthening.

“You can see an area of low pressure creeping in across the north of Scotland.

“That is storm Dudley and just look at those isobars the proximity of them telling you that it is going to be very windy in fact the Met Office has an amber weather warning out to this end for parts of Northern Ireland, southern Scotland and also Northern England.”

“We could have gusts even inland 70 to 80 miles an hour around the coasts 80 to 90 miles an hour,” added Ms Kirkwood.

“So as we head on into Thursday, very slowly the winds will start to ease looking at a day of sunshine and showers and some of those showers will be wintry in nature.

“Now although the winds are easing it still is going to be noticeably windy and temperatures still hanging on to the milder conditions in the south cooler especially as we push farther north.

“And then if we look at the pressure chart once again, in the Atlantic, we’ve got another area of low pressure, this is Storm Eunice again zooming across the country and look at those isobars.

She said: “This time it looks very much like it’s going to be England and Wales that are going to have the strongest winds with gales and in the north of Scotland we’ll see some snow.

“So we will see some blizzards on some of our mountains. But with Eunice, the track has yet to be set down because it hasn’t even formed in the mid-Atlantic yet.

“We expect that to happen sometime tomorrow night so we’ll keep you posted on exactly where that tracks likely to be.

“But we both storms again it could lead to travel disruption, also some damage to property and uprooting and possibly bringing down some trees.”
