Storm Bronagh to impact upon North

  • Two yellow warnings for wind are in place over the coming days

"The good news is Storm Bronagh has cleared away now, so the peak strength of these winds has passed".

High winds are expected to batter Portsmouth today. Injuries and danger to life from flying debris are possible.

The strong winds will be accompanied by short-lived outbreaks of squally heavy rain in places.

'Some vehicles have been parking up against exposed sea walls with waves breaking which could lead to damage or worse'.

Only a day after Storm Ali killed two people and wreaked havoc in the north of the UK, England and Wales are bracing themselves for the second named storm of the season.

Storm Bronagh is set to sweep across Sussex tonight and into tomorrow (Friday September 21), bringing heavy rain and strong gusting winds.

Storm Ali is being followed by Storms Bronagh and Callum this week.

Sheffield had almost half a month's rain fall in 24 hours, while more than half a month's rain fell in Sennybridge, Powys.

Greek town covered in spider webs
The giant webs are spun by a very small spider of the Tetragnatha genus ― it's just 0.7 inches long, according to Inside Edition . Experts told local media that the numbers of lake flies, a non-biting midge, have rocketed amid humid late summer conditions.

Included in their initial warning was the potential that Storm Bronagh would affect the country during Thursday, and as of this morning Storm Bronagh has been officially named by the Met Office, with very strong winds expected across much of England and Wales this evening.

Arriva Trains Wales suspended services between Carmarthen and Fishguard Harbour after a train hit a tree, but the line reopened late in the morning.

There were also reports of delays to airborne aircraft arriving at Manchester Airport, as well as departures, because of the windy conditions.

A yellow warning has been issued for wind covering the Harborough area from 6pm today (Thursday) to 9am tomorrow (Friday).

The 76pmh gust of wind was recorded overnight at the Needles on the Isle of Wight.

Most experts are in agreement that a series of fronts will bring heavy downpours with strong and gusty southwesterly winds backing to northwesterly across the north. Localised flooding is possible.

"We are looking at gusts of between 45 and 55mph across the United Kingdom and associated with that some heavy showers with some hail and thunder".
