There’s slightly good news for the weekend, looks like Storm Ciara may only affect you this Sunday.

The Met Office have warned there will be very strong winds up to 60mph and heavy rain affecting London and Hertfordshire this Sunday (February 9).

When the news of the upcoming storm originally broke, potentially disruptive winds was expected to strike the UK starting from Saturday (February 8) at 6pm and throughout the Sunday.

Now, Storm Ciara will only affect the northern region of England and Ireland, and most of Scotland on the Saturday.

However, Storm Ciara will still strike on the Sunday.

You can expect a lot of traffic disruption as there could be delays to road, rail, air and other forms of public transport.

Houses and other buildings could be at risk of damage such as tiles being blown off from roofs and other flying debris, which could cause injuries.

The Met Office also warns that some roads and bridges could close due to the storm and there could potentially be short-term loss of power and other services such as mobile phone coverage.

In hills or coastal areas, winds could still be as high as 80mph.

This comes just three weeks after Storm Brendan struck the UK in January, making Storm Ciara the third storm of the season which started in September.

Neil Armstrong, Met Office chief forecaster said: “An extremely strong jet stream flowing from North America will be steering a succession of low-pressure systems towards the UK at least into the middle of next week.

“The relative predictability of this pattern has provided an early warning and has given us the certainty to be able to name this storm four days ahead.

“The Met Office will continue to monitor the development of Storm Ciara and other potentially impactful low-pressure systems through next week.

“Warnings will be issued and amended as appropriate so members of the public should keep up to date with the Met Office forecast via our website, app or by following us on social media.”
