Met Office’s hurricane warning

Have your say

WEATHER experts are warning the remains of Hurricane Katia will move eastwards across northern Scotland during Monday, September 12, bringing a spell of very windy weather to the UK including the East Midlands.

The national Met Office has also predicted heavy rain to western Scotland and the strongest winds are expected to affect parts of Northern Ireland before moving east across central and southern Scotland and into northeast England by the evening.

However, the experts are warning that areas further south will not be immune with the potential for strong gusts particularly to the east of high ground.

The Met Office said the public should be prepared for the risk of disruption to transport and of the possibility of damage to trees and structures and they are advised to take extra care.
