2nd March 2016
Storm Jake has arrived - See Video below Storm Jake has arrived - See Video below

Storm Jake has been officially named by Met Éireann. The strongest gusts will mainly affect Ireland with lower impacts for the UK.

Winds will strengthen around southwest parts of the UK through this morning, particularly as a band of showers moves southeastwards across parts of Wales and southwest England.

Along the band of showers there is scope for some locally squally winds and so disruption to travel but the period of strongest winds will be short lived.
