Britons have been warned of the “damaging winds” which will hit Scotland the hardest on Wednesday as it is feared two storms will wreak weather carnage for millions. Speaking to the BBC, weather presenter Helen Willetts said the storm will also impact other areas of the country as Storm Dudley and Storm Eunice rolls in from the Atlantic Ocean.

The presenter warned: “Stormy weather is brewing out in the Atlantic.

“Two storms in fact will hit the UK this week, the first coming on Wednesday, Storm Dudley.

“And then Eunice on Friday, which looks set to affect a more widespread area.”

Temperatures however are “average for the time of year” despite the grim forecast.

Ms Willetts added there will be a “limited frost” overnight and into Wednesday morning in northern areas, before more rain is forecast to douse the rest of the UK.

But in a concerning warning she said how the “most lively winds” from Storm Dudley are expected from midnight until mid-afternoon on Wednesday.

She stressed the worst hit areas could be hammered by winds of up to “90 mph”.

The forecaster added: “The storm will lash many northern parts of the UK throughout the second part of Wednesday.
