UK weather forecast: Storm Gareth to cause travel CHAOS and power outages - WARNING issued

Strong winds are expected which has caused a yellow warning to be put in place for today and Thursday by the Met Office. After a barrage of gale force winds from Storm Gareth over the last few days, the UK will continue to be hit by incredibly strong winds throughout Wednesday morning. Met Office meteorologist Alex Deakin predicted that although there might be some “bright and sunny weather” in some areas, it will still be a blustery start to the day for most of the nation. 

He added: “There will be strong winds across most of the UK due to Storm Gareth and that’s why we have a yellow warning.

“There’s potential for travel disruption, power failures in some areas and very large waves on the western coast.”

Going into the afternoon, the nation will continue to hit by a wave of strong wind.

Due to that wind, any brief patches of showers will pass through the country as we head into the latter part of the afternoon.

Parts of east and south coast of England and Wales will see some minor patches of Sun but for the rest of the country, it will be a cold and windy day.

Going into the evening, the wind will pass through the country and will closely be followed by a colossal band of rain.

Mr Deakin added: “More rain will come piling through the west into north-west England, Wales and western Scotland early on Thursday morning.

“Thursday’s a soggy start for much of the UK but there might be some patches of Sun available in some parts of the country.”

Mr Deakin also revealed that there will be another yellow weather warning in place in the north wets due to the amount of rain on Thursday morning.

Temperatures will rise to just above 10C but due to the “brisk breeze” it will feel much colder.

While the majority of the heavy rain will have passed over by Thursday, it will leave behind it persistent waves of showers.

Looking ahead to the rest of the week, there will “furthers spells of rain” and strong winds heading into the weekend.
