   DUAL STORM Britain could be hit by two storms in the first week of 2018

A yellow weather warning has been issued across the South-east ahead of the arrival of Storm Eleanor tonight (Tuesday).

Power cuts and disruption to other services (mobile phones for example) may also occur, while injuries from flying debris are possible.

Storm Eleanor wasted no time hitting Ireland, with people sharing pictures of the bad weather endured outside their homes.

The storm is threatening Ireland and the west of the United Kingdom with winds of up to 90mph, putting lives at risk, the Met Office has said.

Met √Čireann is warning that southwest to west winds of mean speeds of 55 to 65 km/h, gusting 90 to 110 km/h., will develop later this afternoon and this evening and will continue overnight and through into Wednesday.


In Cumbria the entirety of the county's coastline has been issued with an Environment Agency flood warning. If you are in areas affected by the flood warnings please be prepared and where necessary take action to protect property, friends and family.

"The details of the forecast later this week and into the weekend are extremely uncertain at this stage, so my advice is to keep up to date with the latest forecasts as confidence will increase later in the week".

Environment Agency manager, Jeremy Westgarth, said: "We are preparing for the heavy band of rain and strong winds combined with high tides along the Cumbria and Lancashire coast until Thursday".

Vince Crane, of the AA, advised drivers to take extra care in the worsening conditions.

You'll be scrambling for your anoraks come Wednesday with torrential downpours likely to follow the windy start to the first week of 2018.
