Storm Ciara Set To Batter Britain This Weekend As Met Office Issues Weather Warning

Storm Ciara Set To Batter Britain This Weekend As Met Office Issues Weather Warning

Hold on to your brollies guys, because Storm Ciara is on her way this weekend and she's ready to break umbrellas, ruin fresh blow drys and streak your fake tan.

The Met Office says the third storm of the season will see winds of up to 92mph this weekend and it could cause travel delays and disruptions.

There may even be a chance of power cuts and issues with mobile phone signal - but hopefully not, as it seems the only thing we'll be able to do this weekend is binge Netflix and chat on Whatsapp.

The storm is expected to be rather disruptive, with the Met Office issuing a yellow weather warning across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland from 6pm on Saturday and all day on Sunday.

The north of England is expected to be the worst hit as well as high-ground and coastal areas.

People are being warned to be extra vigilant over the "very strong winds" which could see flying debris and fallen trees or branches.

Let's face it, the dustbins are likely to take a tumble too, so it's worth making sure your rubbish is properly bagged up or you might find yourself chasing crisp packets on Sunday morning.

You can expect Storm Ciara to arrive from the Atlantic on Saturday afternoon, with unsettled weather beginning at the end of this week.

Chief meteorologist Neil Armstrong said: "An extremely strong jet stream flowing from North America will be steering a succession of low-pressure systems towards the UK at least into the middle of next week.

"The relative predictability of this pattern has provided an early warning and has given us the certainty to be able to name this storm four days ahead."

The Met Office reports that by 6pm on Saturday, Ciara will be in full swing, with heavy rain and very strong winds.

Brace yourselves! Is now a good time to invest in an extra strong brolly?
