Due to the storm, two yellow weather warnings have been issued for the entirety of England and Northern Ireland. The yellow weather warnings applies for between 9am to 11.59pm on Tuesday. The Met Office has predicted delays to transport and potential power loss. 

This comes as thousands of people in the north were left without power due to Storm Arwen last weekend. 

Although some in the north had their power restored, up to 5,100 remained cut off in County Durham and Northumberland. 

Like last weekend, the Met Office predicts high winds will once again batter England. 

They claimed wind speeds may reach 70mph in some coastal areas. 

The Met Office reports: “A deep area of low pressure moving in across the UK from the Atlantic is likely to bring high winds to many parts of the UK.

“Strong winds arriving into the west through the morning, spreading inland and reaching eastern areas through the afternoon and early evening.

“Gusts of 45-50 mph are expected widely, with 60-70 mph in exposed coastal locations.

“Strongest winds will ease across inland areas into the overnight period.”

A yellow weather warning has also been issued for the Highlands of Scotland and parts of the north of England. 

The Met Office has warned high levels of snow is expected to fall in the are from the Scottish Highlands running south through the Pennines and the Yorkshire Dales. 

Some areas may see snow levels reaching 10cm due to weather front hitting the country next week. 

A report read: “A band of rain will turn to snow across Northern England and Scotland through Tuesday.

“Between 2-5 cm is expected to accumulate quite widely across the area, but locally this could reach 10 cm, particularly in parts of the Southern Uplands and Highlands.

“Strong southeasterly winds will also lead to snow drifting in places, particularly over the highest routes, adding to poor visibilities.”
