Storm Hector: Brits Face Continued Disruption As Volatile Low Sweeps The Country

Britain will continue to feel the wrath of Storm Hector today as the volatile low pressure system continues to charge across the country

.

The deluge of heavy rain and high winds

battered many parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland overnight, bringing gusts of up to 70mph to exposed coastlines. 

Conditions will

remain unsettled during Thursday across the northern half of the UK, with more disruptive winds as the storm continues to spread south-eastwards from the Atlantic.

Northern and western areas are expected to bare the brunt of the turbulent conditions, but forecasters warn that it'll be a windy day nationwide.

An amber weather warning for high winds is in place across parts of Northern Ireland until 9am this morning.

Meanwhile, a separate severe weather warning for wind is in force until 3pm this afternoon, across Scotland, Northern Ireland, north-west and north-east England. 

The alerts warn of injuries and a danger to life from flying debris, large waves and beach material being thrown onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties.

There is also a risk of localised flooding where downpours soak already saturated ground, according to forecasters.

Sarah Sammy, forecaster of 

The Weather Channel , said Thursday will be an unusually windy day for the time of year.

Heavy rain and gusts of up to 50-60mph are likely to cause further disruption in the north throughout Thursday morning.

Brits planning on travelling are being urged to take extra care as high winds are likely to cause difficult driving conditions and travel delay. 

The forecaster said: "Strong to gale force winds in Northern Ireland will persist through the early hours of Thursday morning, gusting up to 40mph inland, but 50mph along exposed western coasts.

"Heavy rainfall will persist for many in Ireland and Scotland, with fresh to strong winds continuing throughout the morning.

"Fresh to strong winds also likely across northern England, becoming gale force gusts along the coasts and across higher ground with wind speeds of between 40 to 50 mph."

Latest computer models indicate winds should gradually ease during Thursday afternoon and evening as the deep low moves into the Norwegian Sea.

But it will still remain windy for much of northern Scotland and northern England. 

The forecaster added: "Overall rainfall accumulations by midday on Thursday are expected to be up to 20mm for western Ireland, 15mm for north-west England and up to 40mm in parts of western Scotland."

By mid-afternoon, much drier and brighter weather is set to return.

Many in the south should see some pleasantly warm spells of sunshine with temperatures lingering around the high teens to low 20s C. 

Further north, the gusty conditions will stay locked in position a while longer over much of Scotland and northern England, alongside outbreaks of rain.

Heading into Friday there will be a north-south weather divide, with a mixture of sunshine and cloud across England and Wales as downpours soak the north. 

Amy Hodgson, forecaster of The Weather Channel, said: "On Friday, showery rain will feed in from the west while eastern areas will remain drier with the Midlands and south-east seeing the best of the sunshine.

"Maximum temperatures will be 15-18C in Ireland and northern Britain, and 18-21C in southern Britain, locally 23C for the south-east."
