What the weather will be like in your area this week as Storm Debbie reaches the UK

The UK is set for a week of wet and windy weather as Storm Debbie hits on Monday.

The Met Office has issued amber weather warnings for winds in northwest England and Northern Ireland, meaning flying debris is likely to cause injuries or put people’s lives at risk.

There will also be a risk of tiles flying from rooftops, as well as power outages and transportation disruptions.

Power outages were reported across the island of Ireland, with around 100,000 homes left without power after the storm made landfall overnight.

Much of the Republic of Ireland was covered by a red wind warning – the highest level of alert – on Monday morning.

The Met Office’s yellow warning for the North West will remain in place until 4pm on Monday, while the one in southern Northern Ireland will remain in place until midday.

In addition, there are yellow warnings for wind and rain in the north-west, north-east and parts of the Midlands, as well as in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

Heavy rains and strong winds are expected in the affected areas on Monday. Storm Debbie was named by Met Éireann – the Irish meteorological service – on Sunday morning.

The Met Office also warned of possible road and bridge closures, meaning long journeys could be closed and public and other transport cancelled, with road, rail, air and ferry services affected.

Residents of coastal areas are advised to stay away from the waterfront, as high waves are likely to throw beach material onto coastal roads, waterfronts and nearby properties.

Matthew Lehnert, chief meteorologist at the Met Office, said: “Storm Debbie developed rapidly overnight and will affect parts of the UK today.”

“Due to the risk of impacts over parts of County Armagh and County Down this morning and parts of north-west England during most of today, we have issued two amber wind warnings.”
