Storm Eunice and Dudley – Met Office issues further Weather Warnings


The Met-Office has officially warned that the wind and rain from the combination of storms Eunice and Dudley could cause more problems for UK citizens this week.

Following the problems of the past few weeks, it looks like parts of the UK may also have to brace for snow. The official word is a yellow weather warning for wind and snow in parts of the north of England and most of Scotland this Friday 18th February. As well as this, the strong winds from storm Eunice are set to sweep the rest of nation by this date, with the orange weather warning for winds that is currently in place in Scotland moving to the midlands and south of England by Friday.

For the rest of this week you can expect disruptions to roads and public transport such as air and ferry services. Also, be warned that some roads and bridges are likely to close, which may lead to longer journey times and further cancellations. As for the past couple of weeks, you may also need to be prepared for fallen trees and power cuts. And for those in coastal regions (or visiting them for half term), please be aware that the conditions may cause waves and material from beaches to be thrown onto roads and beachside properties.

For those travelling in storms this week, please note this guidance from the Met-Office on how to do so safely, and to keep up to date with the changing conditions, visit the Met-Office website. During the periods of high wind, please be careful of flying debris, as this can cause a danger to life, as well as damage to buildings and homes.
