Met Office warning: New storm to hit THIS WEEKEND as raft of wind warnings issued

The Met Office has issued several wind warnings for the coming weekend potentially showing the next storm of 2020 hitting the UK as deluged communities continue to struggle after the devasting impacts of Storm Ciara and Storm Dennis.

The Met Office has issued another raft of weather warnings - this time for wind as Britain prepares for more stormy conditions this weekend.

A yellow weather warning for wind has been issued for much of the UK on Saturday, starting at midday and ending at midday on Sunday.

A spell of strong winds is expected to move northeast across a large swathe of the UK through Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning.

The Met Office forecast read: “Strong winds will move into south-western parts of the UK by Saturday afternoon, and steadily move north-east through the course of Saturday evening and overnight into Sunday morning. 

“Gusts of 50 to 60 mph are likely quite widely, and especially in association with heavier showers across England and Wales during Saturday afternoon. 

“More isolated gusts of 65 to 70 mph, particularly on coasts and other exposed areas, are probable.”
