Met Office weather warning upgraded as storm Aileen heads for Lincoln

Heavy Rain Thunderstorms and Possible Hail Set to Batter London The UK is bracing itself for stormy weather

Drivers are being urged to take extra care on motorways and major A roads overnight and tomorrow morning during Storm Aileen.

Met Office deputy meteorologist, Chris Tubbs, said: "There are no links between the very strong winds we expect to see here in the UK and the hurricanes affecting the United States and the Caribbean at present".

Highways England has issued an amber "be aware" alert across the region, in response to a Met Office forecast of strong winds and heavy rain.

The yellow warning for wind applies to south east England, but the rain warning does not affect the area.

Heavy rain and high winds are set to rock Ireland for the next few hours as Storm Aileen arrives, with multiple warnings issued by Met Eireann.

Forecasters said flying debris and large coastal waves were possible, which could lead to injuries.

Weather warnings for strong winds and heavy rain have been issued for much of southern Scotland.

Mauricio Pochettino has never been a lucky man with Spurs in the Champions League and will be relishing the clashes at Wembley. The French outfit spent more than 350 million euros on the pair, purchasing them from Barcelona and AS Monaco respectively.

Met Office forecasters have confirmed that the United Kingdom will be hit with the "remnants" of the hurricanes in the next two months - but have said they will be far, far smaller.

"Gusts of 70-75 miles per hour are most likely over hills and western coasts, but even further east gusts of 60-70 miles per hour are possible".

The winds are expected to decrease during the peak travel time at around 9am tomorrow (Wednesday).

"Plan ahead and if you can delay your journey until conditions are expected to improve later on Wednesday, then do so".

"High-sided vehicles will need to take particular care, but anyone driving can expect to experience some very strong gusts and heavy rain which will make driving conditions hard".

This is the first United Kingdom storm to have a name this season and an amber weather warning is in place for Norfolk, parts of northern England, north Wales and parts of the Midlands.
