  • Wind speed in the UK – where have the strongest gales struck as Storm Fionn heads to Britain?

British Airways has cancelled some flights today as Storm Eleanor brings fales force winds and torrential rain to the United Kingdom and parts of continental Europe.

The storm will impact almost all the United Kingdom before the end of tomorrow, with weather alerts spanning everywhere from Scotland to the south west of England.

In Wales there are a further 36 flood warnings and 30 flood alerts, while in Scotland 14 flood warnings and five flood alerts are in place.

"There will be a breeze around tomorrow, particularly across the south of the country, and thereafter it gradually turns a lot more settled into the weekend".

The storm has now moved to the North Sea and forecasters predict that winds are likely to slow as the day goes on (January 3).

Storm Eleanor will bring very strong winds today (Wednesday), with large waves in coastal areas.

The first yellow warning issued by the Met Office has been adjusted to encompass the whole of England, Wales, most of Northern Ireland and the Scotish border.

Persisting high winds mean this morning's 8.45am Ben-my-Chree crossing to Heysham, and the return journey at 2.15pm, have been cancelled.

The RSA also said to watch out for other vehicles veering across the road in high winds.

As of Wednesday morning a few hundred people in Notts were without power to their homes following strong winds overnight.

The Met Office said the conditions could trigger power cuts, affect mobile phone networks and disrupt public transport.

Meteorologist Becky Mitchell warned of the risk of more "violent storm-force gusts" is less likely, but that we could still experience wind speeds of between 70mph and 80mph.

"Gusts of 50-60 miles per hour are likely fairly widely with some gusts reaching 65-75 miles per hour along exposed coasts and over high ground in the west". "Very high seas along Atlantic coasts, with a risk of coastal flooding also".

The Met Office said the heavy gusts would sweep along the Irish Sea coasts and that there was the chance of injury from beach material being thrown across sea-fronts and roads.
