Spalding to be battered by Storm Ciara's strong winds as yellow weather warning issued

South Holland is likely to be battered by strong winds over the weekend when Storm Ciara hits.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for wind on Saturday and Sunday when the low pressure system, named Storm Ciara, will arrive.

The system currently developing in the North Atlantic will bring strong winds and heavy rain across the whole of the UK through the end of the weekend and into the start of next week.

Wind gusts will widely reach 50-60mph across many inland areas and the strongest gusts in exposed locations could reach 80mph.

Neil Armstrong, chief forecaster with the Met Office, said the team will continue to monitor.

He said: “An extremely strong jet stream flowing from North America will be steering a succession of low-pressure systems towards the UK at least into the middle of next week.

"The relative predictability of this pattern has provided an early warning and has given us the certainty to be able to name this storm four days ahead.

The warning is in force from 6pm on Saturday evening until midnight on Sunday.
