Storm Isha tracker map and hour-by-hour forecasts as a rare amber alert has been issued for East Yorkshire

Storm Isha is set to bring very wet and stormy weather to Hull and East Yorkshire this weekend, with a rare amber weather warning issued for parts of the region.

The storm is scheduled to sweep northern Britain, with wind speeds reaching 80 miles per hour in some areas, and its usual speed ranges between 50 and 60 miles per hour. A 24-hour severe weather warning will be issued from noon Sunday through noon Monday.




The amber warning covers northern parts of the East Riding, including Bridlington and Driffield. Hull and the southern half of the county are covered as a lower yellow warning. The Met Office said “strong winds associated with Storm Isha” could disrupt travel and local services on Sunday and Monday.

The yellow wind warning means communities may face potential power outages and loss of mobile phone signal in affected areas, while roads may be closed and rail and bus services may face delays and cancellations. Other hazards can include flying debris and falling trees.

However, warmer temperatures will replace recent sub-zero lows, with temperatures likely to reach 12C on Sunday night. You can follow the storm’s progress on this tracking map from Windy.com, a website dedicated to tracking wind conditions.

Alex Burkill, a meteorologist at the Met Office, said: “Temperatures will be much higher than they have been before.” He added: “More broadly, we could see places reaching highs of 12 to 13 degrees Celsius, but we need to take into account strong winds, rain and clouds, so we won’t feel as warm as that might suggest.”

Storm Isha is the ninth storm to hit the UK since the season began in September. Each is named when it poses a danger to people and is given names that begin with consecutive letters of the alphabet.
