A very windy spell will develop during Wednesday night in association with a deep area of low pressure, now named Storm Hector. The strongest winds will reach Northern Ireland during the early hours of Thursday before spreading eastwards across other northern parts of the UK during the morning. Westerly winds are likely to gust between 50 and 60 mph in many areas and possibly around 70 mph in some exposed locations. Winds should gradually ease from the west during Thursday afternoon. In addition, a spell of heavy rain will accompany the wind with the highest rainfall totals over parts of western Scotland.Within the warning area, the greatest potential for disruption is likely to be in northern parts of Northern Ireland around rush hour on Thursday and later in the morning across southern and central parts of Scotland. It is possible that Amber warnings may be issued for some areas later on Wednesday or early on Thursday if this risk increases further.The warning has been updated to cover more of Northern England and to increase emphasis on potential disruption to outdoor activities.

Chief Forecaster

A deep area of low pressure, now named Storm Hector, will bring a very windy spell to much of the north of the UK on Thursday, as noted in a separate yellow warning. Parts of Northern Ireland look most likely to see the strongest winds during the early part of the morning, including the rush hour. Westerly winds will gust to 50 to 60 mph widely, though gusts of 70 mph are likely for a time in northern and western parts, especially, but not exclusively, along the north coast. These strongest winds will ease somewhat by mid-morning, though it will remain windy and the yellow warning remains in force into the afternoon.
