Met Office issues new 21-hour ‘danger to life’ storm warning across 13 regions

The weather forecast for the week ahead shows Britons will be facing “significantly disruptive” winds, according to the Met Office, with strong winds expected to hit the British Isles from Wednesday, September 27.

The weather experts have issued a yellow weather warning for 13 regions across the UK with warnings of strong gales resulting in “injuries and danger to life from flying debris”.

The map produced by the Met Office shows a deep area of low pressure which will hit southwest Ireland early on Wednesday before reaching northern parts of UK.

Experts are keeping a close eye on the path of the storm, as there is “uncertainty” on the precise track and depth of low, but the most likely outcome is for 50 to 60mph gusts of winds to affect inland areas.

Some Irish Sea coasts could also see gusts of 65-75mph with a small chance of 80mph gusts on the most exposed coasts and headlands.

Posting on social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter, the Met Office explains the harshest winds will be felt from 10am on Wednesday morning though to 7am on Thursday, September 28.

In the latest video on the forecast released by the Met Office, it stated: “We could potentially see some very heavy rain and also some very strong rains. There is uncertainty, but we are keeping a very close eye on the forecast.” 

The Met Office has issued guidance on how to protect properties from damage during harsh weather conditions. Advice includes checking for “loose items” outside your home such as bins, plant pots and garden furniture, and securing the items or moving them inside. 

If you’re out and about during this time frame, you are more vulnerable to injury and you should take care if you are by the coast and keep all dogs on leads.
