"Disruption to travel and utilities is likely."

Here's what to expect:

  • There is a good chance that power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage.
  • Probably some damage to buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs.
  • Longer journey times and cancellations likely, as road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected.
  • Some roads and bridges likely to close.
  • Injuries and danger to life is likely from large waves and beach material being thrown onto coastal roads, sea fronts and properties.
  • Wind speeds are already picking up and driving rain is reported in places.

The whole of the UK is under a weather warning - either yellow or amber - for wind and/or rain.

Wind speeds are forecast to be highest in coastal areas.
