MOST AFFECTED COASTAL ZONES
Stephen Dixon, a spokesperson for the Met Office, said: ‘Storm Arwen was named after a deep low pressure system moving towards the North East of the UK, which triggered our warning of amber wind on Friday.
“The areas most affected will be mainly on the coasts, with gusts of over 75 mph that can disrupt travel and longer travel times, power cuts, flying debris and big waves, with beach gear. thrown around.
‘There is also a yellow wind warning in place along the UK west coast from 9am Friday, stretching from Scotland to Northern Ireland and Wales and to the south-west of England.
“This reflects the impact Storm Arwen will have, with strong winds likely to occur on Saturday, when the warning is extended to most parts of the UK.
“The south-east and London, although quite windy, are expected to escape the worst gusts and remain relatively calm compared to the rest of the country, which will certainly feel the impact of the storm.”
