Met Office warning: Britain to be lashed by 60mph winds as UK covered in alerts | Weather | News

Powerful winds, as well as snow and ice, have already caused disruption overnight on Wednesday into Thursday morning.

The Met Office issued weather warnings for snow and ice earlier this week.

Temperatures plunged overnight, triggering cold weather payments in some areas, while gales of up to 60mph swept across northern parts of the UK.

Earlier on Thursday, Met Office meteorologist John Griffiths said: “Today [Thursday] we may see a wind warning issued to follow the snow and ice.

“Nothing has been issued yet but we could see gusts of up to 50 mph and 60mph in exposed sites.”
