Storm Ciara NAMED: Monster storm approaching this week as UK under threat - latest updates

Yellow Met Office weather warnings span across the entire UK this weekend, in place from 6pm on Saturday, February 8 until 11.59pm on Sunday, February 9.

The Met Office warns “very strong winds” could cause disruption to the UK, with gusts of 50 to 60mph likely across many inland areas.

Gusts of 70, possibly 80 mph are possible around some exposed coastlines and hills.

Accompanying the winds will be heavy rain, which will be an additional hazard, especially over western hills.

Winds of this strength across a wide area have the potential to produce disruption to transport, along with some coastal impacts, especially in the west.
