The Met Office has issued yellow weather warnings for wind, rain, and snow across the UK from Friday.

On Saturday, almost the entire west coast of England, Wales, and Scotland – and all of Northern Ireland – will be hit by strong wind as Storm Kathleen hits. The Met Office said it could bring a small risk of injuries and danger to life from waves on the coast. Gusts of 50mph are widely expected and exposed places could see 60-70mph. The warning covers Cornwall, much of Wales, parts of Lancashire and Cumbria, and up into central Scotland and Northern Ireland. The alert is in place from 8am until 10pm on Saturday. Kathleen has been named by Ireland’s national forecaster, Met Eireann, which has issued its own warnings covering the whole country. Cork, Kerry, Galway, and Mayo are set to be worst affected. They are under an amber alert, meaning “very difficult travel conditions” and potential fallen trees, power outages, and coastal flooding.

Snow and rain warnings There is also a snow warning from 3am until 9am on Friday for a large part of Scotland, meaning the morning commute could be affected for some people. The alert stretches north from around Stirling to just south of Inverness. “Snow is likely to cause some travel disruption on Friday morning, particularly on higher routes,” the forecaster said. Roads, buses, and rail could experience delays. About 2-5cm is possible above 250m, with 10cm or more above 300m, according to the Met Office. A separate warning for heavy rain is also in force from 2am to 9am on Friday, covering the Edinburgh and Dunfermline areas across to Scotland’s west coast. The Met Office said it could also cause travel problems and some flooding.
