Storm Katie set to ruin the rest of your Easter weekend with strong winds and heavy rain


Brace yourself for a depressing finish to the bank holiday weekend as Storm Katie is set to bring high winds to coastal regions for the rest of the Easter holiday.

A nationwide weather warning for wind has been issued and drivers are being warned to watch out for strong gusts on roads and the possibility of fallen trees.

The Met Office has also issued yellow weather warnings for northern Scotland on Sunday.
Good morning, heavy, blustery showers will move in from the west today.

Forecasters say that winds could reach up to 80mph in Orkney and Shetland, but should clear across most of mainland Scotland by mid-morning.

A weather warning for the South West, South East and the east of England is in place for Monday, advising wariness about winds of up to 70mph around the south coast.

Large waves are also expected, and some heavy rain.

“There remains a fair amount of uncertainty over the track and timing of this system, and so where and when the peaks of strongest winds will occur.

“However, there is a continuing signal for a period of disruptive winds, perhaps now more focused towards south-eastern parts of England. This alert will be updated on Sunday in light of further information.”

Showers will continue through Tuesday with hail and thunder also possible.
