Storm Erik Brings Wet And Windy Weather

Storm Erik Brings Wet And Windy Weather

Wind speeds of 69mph were recorded in Powys, Wales, and 68mph in Avonmouth, Bristol, while 50mph winds were expected inland, Met Office meteorologist Simon Partridge said.

By mid-week, conditions are expected to be milder and more settled as high pressure dominates, keeping severe weather fronts at bay.

The warning comes after ferries around Cornwall and Devon were cancelled on Friday morning, the Tamar Bridge was closed to high-sided vehicles and flood alerts were issued for the North Cornwall coast.

According to the Met Office, this week will be "milder of late" and whilst some hill snow is likely it will not snow at lower levels.

Although meteorological spring starts on March 1, Hammond said a "beastly repeat" of last February's savage cold snap could be on the cards.

Later, however, the clouds will move towards Scandinavia with exception of the south.

"This weather has impacted the network, but I'm pleased to say that we were able to restore some power within minutes and our engineers have also worked in hard conditions to restore power to customers and they'll be working through the day to restore the remaining customers as quickly as possible".

Gale force winds have swept through the United Kingdom, felling trees and causing delays for travellers and motorists.

Although the wet and windy weather was expected to ease, further hard conditions were forecast. Showers will continue to affect Atlantic coastal counties on Saturday night, but it will be largely dry with clear spells elsewhere.

The yellow ice warning in place for parts of northern Scotland will remain in place until 10am on Monday.
