Weekend weather forecast for Sheffield after Storm Erik hits city

10 February 2019

Gusts of up to 70mph from Storm Erik are due to blast southern Scotland today after causing travel disruption across the west coast.

Northern Ireland will see a dry start but then see strong winds and heavy rain, and the south-east will remain damp throughout the day and into overnight.

As winds ease off later on Saturday, some hill snow is forecast in central and southern parts of England and into Wales, Mr Burkill said, before calmer conditions on Sunday.

Delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges are likely and some short term loss of power and other services is possible, said the Met Office.

Parts of the country could also experience hail and thunder.

Later, however, the clouds will move towards Scandinavia with exception of the south.

A British Airways plane has been filmed being forced to abandon its landing as strong winds from Storm Erik batter the UK.

Ranieri felt his players lacked the composure at 1-0 down to get themselves back into the game against such talented opposition. I have to say I don't think I would have hit it like he did, so fantastic goal".

He also added: "It will be a brighter second-half of the day for Wales, south-west and northern England with a few showers thrown into the mix as well".

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

The Met Office's wind warning, which was in place until 15:00 BST on Saturday, has now been cancelled.

Storm Erik came with a status orange weather warning for Donegal, Mayo and Galway and wind gusts at times were really powerful.
