Met Eireann Warn That Storm Gareth Is Coming Our Way


The yellow status weather warning issued by the Met Office is valid between 3:00pm on Tuesday and 12:00pm on Wednesday.

Storm Gareth is due to hit parts of the country today, bringing strong winds and a chance of coastal flooding.

The warnings will be in place from 12pm tomorrow until early Wednesday morning.

More severe gusts are expected to move in this evening, with speeds of 55-65mph expected inland, reaching up to 80mph (130km/h) towards the north-west and north coast.

Storm Gareth will bring potentially destructive weather to parts of the United Kingdom this week, the Met Office has said.

A deep area of low-pressure, which will cross to the north of the United Kingdom late on Tuesday into Wednesday, has been named Storm Gareth.

Police teams have issued travel warnings and advice with Storm Gareth bringing treacherous and unsafe driving conditions in Calderdale. "Winds will gradually ease during Wednesday afternoon".

On 12 March, high wind speeds will be joined by as much as 20-44mm of rainfall in much of the United Kingdom, the Met Office said.

This comes after Storm Freya battered the Sussex coast recently.

Met Office forecasters have issued two yellow weather warnings for Tuesday and Wednesday following a bright start to the week on Monday.

Rain spreading across southern parts, with hill snow for central areas, and perhaps to lower levels here later in the night.
