Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire issued with yellow warning by Met Office for wind

The Met Office says some travel disruption from the snow is likely from early in the morning and that some roads and railways are likely to be affected.

During the warning periods, across Northern Ireland there could be gusts of 60 to 70mph, with wind speeds of 50 to 55mph experienced across England and 60 to 65mph in coastal areas.

Sunday will be a cold, raw day with widespread wintry showers or rain, hail, sleet or snow with a risk of thunder.

Gusts of 70-75mph are likely along northern coasts, perhaps up to 80mph for a time.

The warning reads: "A spell of strong northwesterly winds is expected to develop across southwest Scotland late on Tuesday evening then extend across much of England and Wales through Wednesday". Gusts of 50-55 miles per hour are likely inland and up to 65 miles per hour along western coasts.


This afternoon will be windy, but the gusty westerly winds will gradually decrease.

Met Eireann has also issued a status yellow rainfall warning for Connacht, with heavy rain followed by squally showers leading to a risk of rainfall accumulations of around 25 mm.

The Met Office added that as Storm Gareth moves away from the United Kingdom, the winds will ease, though the weather will remain unsettled with showers or spells of rain.

This warning will be in place from Tuesday 12 March 2019 12:00 to Wednesday 13 March 2019 09:00.

Heavy snow has swept across the north of England and Scotland overnight and throughout this morning, days after the country recovers from the powerful gales of Storm Freya.
