Storm Hector Is Set To Tear Through Greater Manchester Tonight
Winds of up to 60mph have been forecast.
Just when we thought we'd been rid of the Beast from the East and the Pest from the West, the Met Office swoops in and tells us another UK storm is on the way...
Storm Hector is on the way to Greater Manchester folks, bringing up to 60mph winds on Thursday.
A yellow weather warning has been issued for much of the UK, including the North West of England, between 3am until 3pm on Thursday 14th June.
A Met Office spokesperson said: "A very windy spell will develop during Wednesday night in association with a deep area of low pressure, now named Storm Hector.
"The strongest winds will reach Northern Ireland during the early hours of Thursday before spreading eastwards across other northern parts of the UK during the morning."
The Met Office added that there is possibility of an upgrade to an amber warning if risks increase throughout the night.
