Met Office weather warning extended to SATURDAY: Storm Eunice to last 48 HOURS in barrage


The Met Office states: “Further strong winds are expected in some southern areas of the UK, which could hamper recovery efforts from storm Eunice.”

The warning suggests the situation will continue on Saturday between 6:00 am and 6:00 pm.

Much like the previous warning for Friday, the weather centre says disruption can be expected.

There is a small chance that some roads and bridges could close.

There is a small chance of longer journey times or cancellations as road, rail, air and ferry services are affected.

And finally, infrastructure recovery works resulting from storm Eunice could also be hampered, i.e. power cuts may be prolonged.

The Met Office states: “A short-lived area of strong winds looks likely to track quickly eastwards across southern parts of England and Wales on Saturday, accompanied by a spell of heavy rain.

“The strongest winds are expected through the Bristol Channel and along the south coast of England with gusts of 60 mph likely here, and 40 to 50 mph inland.

“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.”
