Warning issued for strong wind in Kent as Storm Aileen hits

Warning issued for strong wind in Kent as Storm Aileen hits”

A Met Office statement read: "Storm Aileen will bring a brief spell of very strong westerly winds with gusts of 65-75 mph during the early hours of Wednesday".

The forecasters issued a Status Yellow warning yesterday but now the depression expected to travel across the country has been upgraded to a storm and the first to earn a name in the new season.

A yellow warning means people should "be aware" of severe weather.

Rod Dennis, spokesman for motoring organisation the RAC, said: "The arrival of the first named storm appears to mark a very early arrival of autumn".

The Met Office's Chief Forecaster said: "Gales and local severe gales are expected to arrive in the west of the region later on Tuesday evening and move eastwards overnight".

Both Met Eireann and the Met Office have issued Status Yellow warnings for much of Ireland, with a risk of flooding in some areas from Tuesday evening into Wednesday morning.

And if that wasn't bad enough, we're also expected to be hit by the tail-end of three tropical storms now ravaging the Atlantic.

The Met Office says the country should expect gusts of up to 75mph.

Between 1.2in and 1.5in of rain could fall within six to nine hours, and may lead to flooding on roads.

The Environment Agency has also issued three flood alerts in Bridlington, Derbyshire and Manchester.

Tayside and Fife looks likely to miss out on the worst of the weather.

'Winds will pick up later today, and rain will be heaviest across Northern Ireland and northern England.

"This may cause flooding on the transport network, with spray and hard driving conditions due to the combination of rain and wind".

However, from midnight on Wednesday and lasting until 6am an Amber warning of wind has been issued across the city.

Gusts of 55-65mph are expected in these areas, and even fiercer gusts up to around 75mph gusts could be possible in exposed locations such as the coast and hills.
