UK Weather: Urgent warning for 2 days of snow

A yellow weather warning has been issued as ferocious gale force 75mph winds are set to batter parts of the UK.

The winds are expected to develop over the Western Isles during the early hours with the Outer Hebrides likely to see the strongest winds.

A Met Office spokeswoman said: “A brief period of strong to gale west to southwesterly winds will transfer quickly eastwards across the rest of the warning area on Thursday, likes typically around 50 mph, but perhaps approaching 60 mph in a few morning locations.

“While such wind speeds are not unusual for the time of year, recently weakened trees and structures may mean a greater likelihood of localized damage or disruption.”
