The Metro Office has issued a yellow weather warning for wind across parts of the United Kingdom which could cause disruption today, April 12.
It said that high winds will continue to increase across southern parts of England, peaking through the middle of the day, when 50 to 60 mph gusts are expected.
Severe winds have been battering Ireland as Cork and Kerry are set for the worst of the conditions with weather experts warning of “damaging gusts” with speeds of more than 110km/h.
Storm Noa, named by Meteo France, is expected to bring gusts of up to 70 to 75 mph along parts of the north coast of Devon and Cornwall, as well as exposed headlands elsewhere.
The yellow weather warning remains in place as forecasters warn that some damage to buildings is possible and road, rail, air and ferry services could be affected.
Weather experts say outbreaks of heavy rain and showers will also blast Britain alongside the strong winds.
Met Office Chief Meteorologist, Matthew Lehnert, said: “A low pressure system will bring a period of wet and windy weather today and tomorrow.
“Thick cloud and heavy rain will continue to push in from west bringing 50 to 60 mph winds along western coasts. Snow is likely to fall over parts of upland Scotland overnight.
“Some disruption due to strong winds is likely on Wednesday, especially in southern and western areas, as well as the potential for heavy rainfall and even some snow, though the latter probably confined to high ground in the north.”
