Brits will be left windswept by a third storm following the impact of Storm Dudley and Storm Eunice, the Met Office has warned.

The latest forecast has named Storm Franklin as the latest storm which will hit the UK from this evening (February 20) through to Monday morning bringing strong winds travelling up to 80mph in some parts of the country.

Met Office Chief Meteorologist Andy Page said: “Following the significant impacts of Storm Eunice on Friday, Storm Franklin will bring further high winds for many late on Sunday and into Monday, although not on the same scale as Eunice.

“Coastal areas of Northern Ireland, especially on that north coast, will get the strongest wind gusts, which could be around 80mph in a few places. Amber and Yellow Wind Warnings have been issued, and people should remain cautious ahead of the system that will bring 50-60mph wind gusts for much of the UK from late on Sunday and through Monday.”
