Storm Gareth: 70 MPH winds and rain to cause travel chaos in UK

Published on : Tuesday, March 12, 2019

Met Office issues warnings as Storm Gareth hits the U.K. with up to 70mph winds and flood-inducing heavy rain. The warnings are about travel difficulties and power outages. Britain has been put on yellow alert by Met Office as destructive weather arrives from the west. The storm is expected to land on Tuesday.

 

 

Almost all of England, Wales and Northern Ireland, as well as parts of Scotland, on Tuesday and Wednesday will be overwhelmed by strong winds. Some north-western areas of England were also issued with yellow warnings of rain for Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

 

 

 

Another Met Office tweet added that northern England was particularly at risk of travel disruption and localised flooding. There could be 50mm to 60mm of rainfall over higher ground in Cumbria. Met Éireann, the Irish weather service, named the storm as Storm Gareth. It  is the third named storm this year after Storm Erik in February and Freya this month.

 

 

 

 

The strong north-westerly winds will also affect south-west Scotland late on Tuesday, spreading across much of England and Wales through Wednesday.

 

 

 

 

A yellow alert means people should prepare for severe weather that could lead to disruption to day-to-day activities and travel delays. They are less severe than amber or red warnings, though the expected likelihood and severity of the impact of each yellow warning can vary.
