Met Office yellow weather warning for Monday 13 November

Weather warnings have been issued for large parts of Wales and the UK as Storm Debi is forecast to bring heavy rain and gale force winds.

The storm will reach parts of Wales and northern England on Monday morning after sweeping across Ireland, the Met Office said, with the potential for 80mph gusts in some areas.

A yellow warning for wind and rain will be in place from 4am until 6pm for areas including Bangor and St Davids in Wales and Manchester, Sheffield, and Liverpool in England, bringing a potential danger to life from flying debris.

Aberdeenshire in Scotland will have a yellow warning for rain later in the day, from 10am until 9pm.

Jason Kelly, chief meteorologist at the Met Office, said: “The strongest winds are expected to affect parts of the Republic of Ireland early on Monday, possibly coinciding with the morning commute, before then affecting parts of north Wales and northern England into the afternoon.

“Whilst the very strongest winds will have eased somewhat before reaching the UK, we are still expecting some significant impacts and a wind warning has been issued.

“Additionally, Debi will bring a period of heavy rain to Northern Ireland for which a combined wind and rain warning has been issued.”

Simon Partridge, a spokesman for the Met Office, added: “For parts of north-west Wales and England, there is a possibility of 70 to 80mph winds.

“It will be a wet and blustery day for all.”

As our climate breaks down and our Government also, one wonders how Mr Sunak manages to be a climate denier and impervious to the actions of his own cabinet. Is this not the third major storm in just over three weeks?
