Storm Erik claims another victim but conditions could become more settled

The Met Office issued a number of weather warnings for floods and strong winds on Saturday, as Storm Erik brought gusts of nearly 70mph that caused disruption on several roads, with emergency services warning motorists to take care.

There will be showers in western and northern areas, with frost and fog forming as winds slow down and southern England will see some rain, with patches of snow falling over hills.

The agency warned: "A swathe of very strong westerly winds is expected to move east through Saturday morning, easing from the west during the day".

'And it will be a touch colder than it has been on recent mornings.

Saturday will see a mix of sunny spells and blustery showers, with the most persistent rain in the north of the country and the possible risk of hail and thunder in the west. As this morning progresses, however, the rain and cloud cover will head towards Scandinavia although, for most areas in the south, it will still be a wet start to the day.

'Elsewhere lots of sunshine on offer, a few showers across parts of England and Wales, but these will be few and far between.

Storm Erik will continue to batter the United Kingdom today with strong winds before snow showers hit some parts of the country.




And now, it seems as though the effects of Storm Erik are showing.

"Because of the cold air, this could fall as snow on higher ground in Scotland and England on Sunday".

And the blustery weather looks set to continue into the weekend, with the Met Office extending a yellow warning, admitting the storm turned out to be stronger than originally anticipated.

On Friday morning a 50-year-old man died on the A384 in Buckfastleigh, Devon, and in Wales a van driver was killed after he collided with a fallen tree on the B4306 between Pontyberem and Llannon in west Wales.

A separate yellow weather warning for heavy rain was issued for northern Scotland on Saturday.

A weather warning for wind on Saturday has been extended to cover most of the United Kingdom, while in Scotland heavy rain is expected into the afternoon, with a risk of flooding in some parts, the Met Office said.
