UK weather forecast: Britain faces horror SNOW and 90mph gales in Storm Brendan showdown | Weather | News


Severe gales and localised flooding has already caused travel chaos across the nation as Storm Brendan battered the UK and Ireland with winds of up to 87mph. The storm has brought with it 50ft waves and floods which will only worsen over the next 24 hours.

The Met Office has yellow warnings for wind, snow and ice and rain covering much of the UK on Tuesday.

Travel across the nation has already been disrupted with flights, trains and ferry services delayed or cancelled.

In Wales, more than 1,000 homes were left without power after a tree fell onto a power line.

And now, the Met Office has warned that the storm will only worsen on Tuesday.

Met Office meteorologist Aidan McGivern said: “Tuesday evening will see the wind and rain increase further across much of England and Wales.

“Much of central and southern England you can expect 55mph wind gusts.

“Around coasts perhaps 60mph or 70mph for the most exposed locations during Tuesday evening.

“This will be accompanied by heavy rainfall, across central-southern England in particular.”

The Met Office has also warned of snow in some parts of the country with a warning in place for Tuesday.

In a tweet, the weather agency wrote: “Blustery showers in the west during Tuesday’s commute, with snow and ice across the higher ground in Scotland.

“A drier picture elsewhere, but with more wet and windy weather arriving into the afternoon.”

Mr McGivern said: “It’s across northern parts of Scotland, north of the centre belts, predominantly over 200 metres where further snow will be piling up during the morning.

“Icy patches as well down to lower levels perhaps in places.”

The rest of the week will continue to be windy on Tuesday and Wednesday, before brighter and sunnier conditions arrive on Thursday.

The Met Office spokesman said: “Coastal showers moving inland through Wednesday morning, sunny spells and windy throughout.

“Dry and bright Thursday morning, rain later and gales possible. Sunny spells Friday, with occasional showers, winds easing.”

The BBC’s long-range forecast shows conditions to significantly clear up on Friday morning.

However, north Yorkshire across the Dales, could see some snow.
