As Storm Dudley ripped through Doncaster on Wednesday, today we can expect another in the form of Storm Eunice.
Winds will be unusually strong and violent today, reaching peak speeds of 60mph at 3pm, according to the Met Office. The morning will not be as turbulent as the rest of the day, although wind gusts will be faster than 40 mph from 11am.
These strong gusts of wind are not expected to subside until Saturday morning. On that day, they should return to a relatively normal speed of 30 mph by 7 a.m.
However, until then, it is advisable to exercise the utmost caution when going out. The winds could easily be strong enough to knock you over, on top of that they can also blow heavy objects in your direction potentially causing serious injury.
At the same time, due to the winds, it will be much colder than it actually is. Today’s average temperature will be around 5 degrees Celsius, according to the Met Office – however, it is expected to be more like minus 3 degrees Celsius due to bad weather.
Fortunately, we are not expecting too much rain today. The Met Office says it will rain from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., although it won’t be particularly heavy – the winds are always the biggest concern. However, it can rain heavily from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. – during this time there is an 80% chance of precipitation. Also, there is a 70% chance of precipitation at 12 p.m.
