Storm Gareth may cause flooding and power cuts, warn forecasters

A yellow weather warning has been issued for the East of England

A yellow "be prepared" warning for wind for the whole of Wales is in force from 21:00 GMT Tuesday until 15:00 Wednesday.

Headline: Unsettled through much of this week, with a spell of potentially disruptive winds later tomorrow, Tuesday, into Wednesday, especially in the northwest.

Severe weather lashed western Scotland yesterday and the Met Office issued flooding alerts for the region as Storm Gareth took hold.

Storm Gareth is expected to hit the United Kingdom on Tuesday, bringing wind speeds up to 80mph and heavy rain.

The organisation posted: "Road users are advised to use caution crossing the M90 Friarton Bridge due to high winds now affecting driving conditions".

As Storm Gareth arrives in Calderdale, and across Yorkshire, heavy rain and cool temperatures are expected, with a high of 10°C.

Gusts could even reach 80mph along northern coasts, the Met Office said. Another weather front of rain and winds sweep across Britain on Friday.

"Winds will steadily ease through Wednesday morning".

"There will be gusts of 50 to 60mph inland, and on coasts, up to 65 miles per hour, and this can certainly cause disruption".

This warning is valid from Monday, March 11 at 6pm to 6am on Tuesday, March 12. Showers will gradually ease through the morning, becoming confined to northeast Ulster in the afternoon.
