Storm Diana is about to impact the UK on Wednesday with a strong wind and a savage rain.
Diana named by IPMA Portuguese weather service. Diana is a storm coming from the Azores, she will then move to the UK during mid week with a strong wind and a massive rain, that will give wet and windy conditions to the UK.
Diana hits in the south west of Great Britain she will not have time to weaken and therefore we can expect heavy rains. There will be 20mm – 40mm rain bringing winds up to 60 mph, Christmas shopping is about to be a disaster!
It is expected that the storm front on Wednesday and Thursday will pass through all the western region of great Britain from south to north . Temperature are expected to reach a maximum of 10C with high of 4C. Storm Diana is due to arrive on Wednesday although shower are likely to persist on Thursday.
Dan Harris, the met deputy chief meteorologist says, ” It now looks very likely that we will see a major change in the UK’s weather early in the week ahead. Before the wet and windy conditions arrive, Sunday and Monday nights will be frosty in places with patchy fog making driving conditions difficult in some area.”
In response, the Met Office has issued several severe weather warnings across the UK, with strong winds and downpours expected across much of Wales, Northern Ireland, western England and Scotland.
It added there was a small chance that injuries and danger to life ‘could occur from large waves and beach material being thrown onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties’ in coastal areas such as Cornwall.
