You know the drill, check ahead when you’re travelling and don’t make unnecessary journeys as storm Gareth is on the way.
The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for ‘damaging gusts’ of up to 80mph for today and tomorrow across the UK, as well as flooding in some parts of the country. The severe “be aware” warning comes after a supermarket roof was torn off by the gusts on Sunday.
Gareth is the third storm to be named this 2019 after Erik last month and also Freya earlier in March.
Experts have predicted strong winds for Northern Ireland before the wintry, blustery weather hits south-west Scotland, and onto England and Wales.
The arrival of Storm Gareth carries the risk of loose debris, damage to buildings, power cuts and travel disruption, the Met Office says – so take extra care with journeys and if you’re travelling by public transport be sure to double check official websites, social media and apps in case of cancellations and disruptions.
