European Union PhOtOs- Severe Storm Henry Hits UK & Europe

Roads and Bridges Closed and Trains Cancelled Ahead of Expected Gales of Up to 90mph as Storm Henry Blows in

  • Roads closed, rail services to be terminated early and ferry passengers warned of disruption due to poor conditions
  • Storm Henry is sweeping on off the Atlantic today, bringing 90mph winds and more than two inches of rain to UK
  • Britain has only just seen off Storm Gertrude which hammered exposed parts of the country with 100mph winds
  • Amber weather warnings have been put in place across Scotland and northern England for today and tomorrow
Daily Mail UK, 1 February 2016

Roads have been closed and train services suspended after Storm Henry swept in off the Atlantic this morning bringing gales of up to 90mph and more than two inches of rain to parts of Britain.

Rail lines across Scotland face disruption throughout the day, with operator ScotRail saying some of its services will only operate until early afternoon due to the extreme weather conditions.

Ferry passengers also face disruption due to the choppy conditions at sea, while roads across the country have been shut or blocked by falling trees as the 90mph winds caused carnage.

Storm Henry is the eighth named - winter storm to hit Britain and comes just days after the UK saw off Storm Gertrude, which brought gusts of more than 100mph in places as well as heavy rain and snow.

Scroll down for forecast

The result of Storm Henry: A lorry blew over onto its side on the A66 in Cumbria today as high winds battered northern parts of England and Scotland. Britain's eighth named storm is set to cause carnage on the roads, rail network and for ferry passengers throughout today

Oh dear: Police were called to the scene in Cumbria after this truck was blown off the road and onto a bit of wasteland following high winds in the region. Motorists are being urged to take care on the nation's roads today as gale-force winds batter much of the country

Taking a battering: Huge waves crash over the lighthouse at Porthcawl, Wales, today as Storm Henry descends on the United Kingdom

Almighty force: Large waves whipped up along the coast of Porthcawl, Wales, today as winds of up to 90mph hit exposed locations

Alerts: Severe weather warnings have been issued for all of Scotland and northern England and Northern Ireland today and tomorrow (left), which advise people to 'be prepared' for high winds and rain.
Meanwhile, the graphic on the right - courtesy of xcweather - shows the wind speeds across the country. The red arrows show where the wind is 'gusting', with the bigger arrows indicating the windiest locations

The Met Office has issued amber 'be prepared' weather warnings for wind covering Scotland from 3pm on Monday until Tuesday morning.

Gusts of 70-80mph are widely expected, while 90mph is possible in the most exposed areas, especially across the Western Isles and along the west coast.

The Forth Road Bridge has already been closed to high-sided vehicles and the A82 between Glencoe and Rannoch Moor is closed to all vehicles apart from cars after a van and a lorry were blown off the road earlier.

Warnings for wind at the lesser graded yellow 'be aware' level are also in place for the whole of the northern UK and Northern Ireland. Yellow alerts have also been issued for rain in northern and central areas of Scotland.

The Met Office said: 'A deep area of low pressure will push quickly eastwards close to the north of Scotland later on Monday and into Tuesday.
'Some very strong west to south-westerly winds are expected to develop on the southern and western flanks of this system, affecting much of Scotland.

'Gusts of 70-80 mph are expected widely, whilst gusts of 90mph are possible in the most exposed areas, especially across the Western Isles and along the west coast.

'Be prepared for some potentially severe weather, causing transport disruption and difficult driving, some structural damage, dangerous coastal conditions and disruption to power supplies.'

Storm-watching: Members of the public were spotted on the seafront at Porthcawl, Wales, as waves lashed against the sea wall

Moving in: This graphic shows Storm Henry sweeping in across the British Isles off the Atlantic (shown in orange and green).
Forecasters warn the country's eighth named storm will bring 90mph winds and two inches of rain to much of Scotland and parts of northern England

Be prepared for wind! This dramatic graphic shows the strength of the winds which will hit Britain at 3pm today. The darker the red on the graphic, the stronger the winds. Forecasters warn speeds will reach 70mph to 80mph widely across the UK, and up to 90mph on the coasts

Calm before the storm: A cyclist enjoys a break from the stormy weather in the New Forest this weekend ahead of Storm Henry today

Train operator ScotRail said some of its services will only operate until early afternoon on Monday, before being suspended until the end of the day.

Jacqueline Taggart, of the ScotRail Alliance, said: 'Once again we find ourselves preparing for extreme weather conditions hitting the country. Last week Storm Gertrude brought incredibly high winds and treacherous conditions to Scotland - and it looks as though Storm Henry is going to do the same.

'We have been working closely with the Met Office and they have advised us that conditions will worsen as the day progresses. This means that any impact on our services will be felt later in the day.

'I would really urge people to look at their travel plans for the whole day. We will be running services in the morning that, due to Storm Henry, we will be unable to run in the afternoon. So, please do make arrangements for both your outward and return journeys.'

Caledonian MacBrayne is also advising ferry passengers to check ahead for disruptions across its ferry network.

Scotland's Transport Minister Derek Mackay said: 'Our Multi-Agency Response Team, based at the National Traffic Scotland Control Centre, which has been in operation throughout the weekend will remain in place to monitor events and respond as required.

'Our fleet of patrol vehicles and gritters are treating roads where needed around the clock to help keep roads open to traffic, but quickly changing conditions means journeys could be disrupted.'

The Met Office said the vigorous low pressure system was expected to pass just to the north of Scotland, bringing very strong west or south-westerly winds across much of the UK.

Here comes Storm Henry: This satellite image, taken on Saturday by the NASA MODIS instruments Terra and Aqua shows Britain's eighth named storm approaching the UK. Forecasters warn it will bring gales of up to 90mph and more than two inches of rain today and Tuesday

The three-day weather forecast reveals that Wednesday could be affected by showers but should be largely dry after Storm Henry passes
