Met Eireann Warn That Storm Gareth Is Coming Our Way

Strong winds and large waves at the harbour Folkestone

In addition to the strong winds, Storm Gareth will bring heavy rain for the East of England.

Strong west to northwesterly winds are expected from Tuesday afternoon until Wednesday with possible transport disruption.

Forecasters are predicting strong northwesterly winds will spread across much of the United Kingdom with gusts of up to 55mph across the next two days.

Storm Gareth weather is set to bring sustained bitterly cold gale force winds of up to 130 km/h according to the latest from Met Éireann.

Met Eirann, the Irish Meteorological Service, also warned of "severe and damaging gusts" as the storm moved over the country towards the UK.

There were also reports of trees blocking roads and some exposed routes in the north-east of England being closed to high-sided vehicles.

Gusts could reach 80mph today along the coast of Northern Ireland, the Met Office said. The wind and showers will gradually ease as the day progresses, ahead of more prolonged evening rain. The northwest winds will eventually moderate early on Wednesday night, before backing westerly and freshening again overnight.

The warning is in place from 12.15am tonight to 12pm tomorrow (March 12) covering Lancaster, Burrnley, Preston and reaching into the Fylde coast. More rain and a few thunderstorms are possible early Thursday and again Thursday evening but in-between the rains, gusty winds will elevate temperatures to almost 70-degrees.
