Storm Diana warning for 70mph winds and heavy rain across Northern Ireland

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning covering North Wales as the area is threatened by severe downpours and powerful gales.

Met Office deputy chief meteorologist Dan Harris said: "It now looks very likely that we will see a major change in the UK's weather early in the week ahead".

With Storm Diane initially expected to skirt past the region up the west coast, an updated post on Wednesday night placed a Yellow Warning across the majority of Yorkshire.

Heavy winds are expected tomorrow.


High seas are also expected, with a risk of coastal flooding.

Dundee and the local area has been placed under a flood alert as the country braces itself for Storm Diana.

"Friday will see further showers with strong southwesterly winds gradually easing to a moderate southerly and the further outlook to the weekend indicates continued unsettled conditions with rain at times".
