Storm Eunice RECAP: Snow, ice and winds to follow tempest that killed three

Winds on Saturday could hamper Storm Eunice clear up efforts

More windy weather on Saturday could hamper clear-up efforts in the aftermath of Storm Eunice, the Met Office has said.

While gusts are not forecast to be as strong as Friday’s, their timing after what is expected to be a major storm might cause issues, the forecaster warned.

A yellow weather warning for wind has been issued for 6am on Saturday until 6pm, affecting the south and south west coast of England, Herefordshire and much of Wales.

Wind speeds are expected to get up to 60mph through the Bristol Channel and along the south coast of England, and around 50mph inland.

The Met Office said: “The winds themselves could cause minor disruption; but given the expected impact from Storm Eunice on Friday, these conditions on Saturday may hamper any clear-up operations.”
