Scotland braces for Storm Eleanor

Scotland braces for Storm Eleanor

Environment Agency manager, Jeremy Westgarth, said: "We are preparing for the heavy band of rain and strong winds combined with high tides along the Cumbria and Lancashire coast until Thursday".

"There is a small chance of injuries and danger to life, as well as minor property damage, from flying debris".

A yellow weather warning has been issued across the South-east ahead of the arrival of Storm Eleanor tonight (Tuesday).

Later this afternoon they will also be looking to issue Flood Warnings for areas along the coast where we forecast potential flooding of properties.

The fifth named storm of the season would bring a "very windy" spell to Britain on Tuesday night and Wednesday, forecasters said. Indeed, several people took to Twitter to share videos and pictures of flooding in and around the Galway area.

Oil near 2015 highs on strong China data
Front-month prices are about 12 per cent higher this year, after rising 45 per cent - the most since 2009 - in 2016. Crude oil witnessed a continued increase with the global prices extending their recovery well and truly this year.

An amber wind warning, valid from 19:30 GMT on Tuesday, has been issued for much of Northern Ireland.

Deputy chief forecaster Dan Harris added that next weekend could bring a return of colder conditions with a risk of frost, ice and wintry conditions, particularly in the north. "It could remain more unsettled in the south".

"Our frontline teams are on the ground, checking defences and may close coastal flood gates".

"Drivers will need to take extra care and expect delays, even on motorways".
