Cumbria braced for Storm Helene which could cause 'danger to life'”

"Winds are likely to gust to 55-65 miles per hour quite widely in the warning area, with possible gusts of 70-80 miles per hour in exposure".

Storm Helene is forecast to impact the United Kingdom with powerful gusts reaching 70mph and heavy rain from around 6pm this evening.

The warning, which runs from 6pm on Monday until midday Tuesday states that flying debris is possible and "could cause danger to life".

Storm Helene is due to arrive on Monday with a yellow "be aware" warning in force from 18:00 BST and is expected to pass through by 08:00 on Tuesday.

The national forecaster issued the briefing about the expected path of the tropical storm making its way towards Ireland.

- There could be some short term loss of power and other services.

Met Office bosses have even warned of heavy waves in coastal areas, with the potential for injuries as the sea pulls up items from beaches.

Overcast with moderate to heavy rain for south-west England, Wales, Ireland, north-west England and Scotland with fresh to strong and gusty southerly winds through the afternoon and evening.

"Winds associated with the storm are now expected to be strongest at sea and along the south and south-east coasts, with winds overland expected to be moderate to fresh, easterly in direction at first, then becoming cyclonic variable as the eye of the storm passes over".

"It's possible that the west coast of Wales and Cornwall could get some winds as well, but we will get a clearer picture of what to expect very soon".

"The models indicate it will travel up the west side of the United Kingdom, before crossing Scotland and going out the north of Scotland, but that could change as the storm degrades and changes its habits".
