Weather warnings and who to contact


The Met Office has issued weather warnings for Storm Dudley and Storm Eunice. Storm Dudley will arrive Wednesday 16th around 1pm through to 6am Thursday 17 February and is expected to bring a spell of very strong winds and possible disruption, with westerly gusts of 50 to 60mph and potentially 60 to 70mph. . After the very windy start to Thursday, less windy conditions are expected – but not for long. Overnight Thursday and into early Friday wind increase once again as Storm Eunice arrives during Friday morning. Storm Eunice has been upgraded to an amber warning and likely to bring stronger winds and unsettled weather that could cause significant disruption. Winds associated with Storm Eunice are expected to ease late on Friday, with the coming weekend still looking likely that it will remain very windy with winds still reaching 40 to 50mph at times, along with spells of rain or showers.
