The storms, probably more in keeping with autumn will deliver rain, heavy at times, which may cumulatively lead to some flooding across the counties, but it’s the wind speeds more likely to cause issues. After a lull on Thursday with a dry, bright, and breezy day expected, Friday will be the focal point as Storm Eunice delivers winds which will gust up to gale force at times, potentially causing minor structural damage and along with the rain, some challenging driving conditions on the roads.

The airflow direction does deliver unseasonably mild temperatures which spares us any wintry conditions, with a generally settling down in the weather expected once Eunice has moved away to the east.

The BBC predict that tonight will be very windy with gales and strong gusts in exposed areas. There will be clear spells as well as variable cloud cover. A risk of an isolated shower.
