UK To Be Battered By 80mph Winds In "Danger To Life" Storm

UK to face disruptive winds on September 27-28

The Met Office has warned of “significantly disruptive” winds across the UK on September 27-28, with gusts of up to 80mph possible on the most exposed coasts.

The strong winds are expected to be caused by a deep area of low pressure that will hit southwest Ireland early on Wednesday before reaching northern parts of the UK. The Met Office is urging people to be prepared for the strong winds, which could cause damage to property and disruption to travel.

We’ve got a yellow weather warning in place for 13 different parts of the UK, including Northern Ireland and parts of Scotland, Wales and England. According to the Met Office, the strongest winds are expected to hit between 10 am on Wednesday and 7 am on Thursday.

The Met Office is urging people to be prepared for the strong winds, and has issued the following guidance:

  • Check for loose items outside your home, such as bins, plant pots, and garden furniture, and secure them or move them inside.
  • Be careful if you are by the coast, and keep all dogs on leads.
  • If you are driving, grip your steering wheel firmly with both hands, and leave extra time for your journey.
  • Be aware of cyclists, motorbikes, and pedestrians, and give them more room than usual.

The Met Office continues to monitor the trajectory of a storm which is expected to affect the United Kingdom on Wednesday. It is anticipated that the storm will produce heavy rainfall and gusty winds, however, the exact path and intensity of the storm is still uncertain.

Here are some additional details about the potential impacts of the storm:

  • Power outages are possible, especially in areas with overhead power lines.
  • Public transportation could be disrupted, with delays and cancellations possible.
  • Trees could be toppled, causing damage to property and roads.
  • Coastal flooding is possible, especially in areas with high tides.
  • People should avoid traveling if possible, and if they must travel, they should be aware of the risks and take precautions.

The Met Office will continue to provide updates on the forecast in the coming days.
